The Evolving Jonathan Saunders Shows Spring/Summer 2013.

This is a collection that Jonathan Saunders created to prove that he can evolve his design talent from  the graphic prints that have become his signature. Not only is he a textile designer but a fabric designer as well and he conveyed the latter in an amazing way this time around.

He decided to go forward in a more seductive vein with looks that reflected the Seventies. What sashayed down the runway were swingy dresses with slashed necklines, done in color-blocked, jewel-toned silks, metallic leather chevron stripes or dense sequins in jade green or deep blue.

Even though Saunders said that he wanted to focus on fabrics rather than prints he still managed to create prints that were more subtle this time around. Silk water drops were appliqued onto a black chiffon slipdress, and a similar motif in ombré shades of blue on a silk t-shirt and trouser combo were clean and colorful.

The sleek pantsuits worn with chiffon and silk triangle bras were sexy and clean. The models had glossy purple lips and mussed up hair that added the subtle Seventies feel.
Jonathan Saunders is no doubt one of London's designers that makes simple look modern, elegant and new. His collections are worth anticipating because of the eye of design he has, for he possesses a real great talent and it shows.
