Runway Report: Jonathan Saunders Fall 2015

This season, Jonathan Saunders returned to a little inspiration he mentioned early on in his career – the work of pop artists Allen Jones and Bridget Reily. Full of prints, flirty hem-lines and cheeky lace-up footwear, the collection was a marked move-on from spring/summer – and a jovial foray it was too.

The colour palette was retro technicolor at its best. Jonathan’s penchant for geometric blocks of colour played out via giant stripes seen down the sides of long-sleeved dresses and A-line skirts, or creating symmetrical designs down the front of buttoned-up shirts. A new take on ombré saw swatches of tonal colour fade in to one-another on pleated knee-length skirts and tunics.

In places, prints bordering on psychedelic covered roll-neck shift dresses, paired with knee-high leather boots in an array of contrasting colours. The look was sixties at its best, with thick-framed white sunglasses further validating the era.
