• Jonathan Saunders • S/S14 •

The Tate Modern was Jonathan Saunders' set for London Fashion Aweek this season. The Glaswegian studied at the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland and then moved onto Central Saint Martins (where he graduated with an MA in Printed Textiles) in England. 

His printed textiles experience is always noticable in his collections. The attention to details and the mixing of materials you notmally wouldn't pair together but it turns out they actually work well together, is something to try to fathom. His Creativeness is what he should be called. 

 The colour palettes in his collections have been getting very rich. Burgundies, dark sandy colours, teals, navy and charcoals were all used this season. His mixture of print and colour are also great. Lifelike-floral-printed sheer blouses with colour blocked jackets and silk culottes (Look 1) are a great example of this.

'Why do Birkenstocks exist?' I ask myself occasionally. They completely frazzle me. A few London designers have featured them in their collections this season. They are still ugly, albeit I've excused all designers because the collections are so good. Jonathan's another one of the excused.

Jonathan cannot be stopped on his rise to fashion superstardom. His collections get better by the season and are always interpreting the same colours in a countless number of ways.
