Jonathan Saunder Spring 2012 Runway Review

This season, Jonathan Saunders presented a stellar collection rife with sophisticated looks done in forties and fifties-style silhouettes. The collection showed off the designer’s knack for working with prints, combining colors, and pairing soft and hard materials in a seemingly effortless manner.

It’s easy for a collection inspired by the decades Saunders turned to this season to appear dowdy, but his separates, skirts, coats, day and cocktail dresses appear anything but. The collection stuck to a mostly Art Deco color palette of pastels including salmon, peach, yellow, and blue with neutral shades, polka dots, and Indian and Turkish-inspired prints woven in. Among the stand-out looks were the finale dresses that worked in both the ornate, via prints, and the light with delicate, sheer fabrics.
