JONATHAN SAUNDERS CAPSULE COLLECTION

In its continued attempt to bring designer fashions to the masses, Target will debut Scottish designer Jonathan Saunders’ GO International collection in their stores October 5th (it will be sold through the month of October). 

Lucky for Manhattanites and those NYC-bound, the collection will be available in the city beginning next week when Target opens the doors to their Bullseye Bodega pop-up stores.

I’m not sure how wearable the Mondrian-esque, geometric-shaped, color-blocked dresses are (not to mention reminiscent of the 1960s YSL “Mondrian” dress), but the Mondrian-inspired skirt (I just wish it had pockets by the white color-blocking), and the Pollock-inspired jacket with its splashes of color look promising.


I would love to see how the jacket looks paired with a monochromatic shift dress rather than a graphic tee.


 
The emphasis of the collection is definitely prints, as there seems to be very little innovative in the way of silhouette and tailoring. That said, for these price-points (the collection ranges in price from $14.99 to $59.99), the smartest way seems to be to go with a focus on prints which Saunders is known to masterfully use.
