London Fashion Week: Jonathan Saunders Spring/Summer 16
Let there be light
What better way is there to introduce a spring collection than to do so in a room drenched in natural lighting? For his Spring/Summer 16 collection, Jonathan Saunders did just that in London's King's Cross.
Adding even more vibrancy to the room was Saunders' collection. Working in his signature off-kilter colour combinations, the square saw stripes, colour blocking, polka dots, and intricate patterns inspired by Moorish tiles and guipure lace, which came as a print on a silk tunic dress and a long, buttoned-up tunic dress.
Exuding an easy femininity, the collection had a zesty feel to it with key colours being crimson red, and a lemon yellow. The slip dress appeared as a staple in the collection, a design Saunders presented a few seasons ago and revived for Spring/Summer 16 in all its glory. Cut on the bias, its panelled structure lends itself well to colour-blocking and a mash up of prints, which is precisely the direction Saunders took it in.
Overall, there was a global sensibility to the collection, as seen in Asian-inspired kimono-like dresses that mixed solid colours with leaf-patterned silks in alternating shades of pastels and heavily saturated primary colours.
