NEXT...Jonathan Saunders

The next target on my NY Fashion Week list is Jonathan Saunders, I first fell in love with his clothes when I saw Kelly Osbourne wearing a floor length gown of his on Porject Catwalk, I then saw the dress at a sample sale but alas still couldn't afford it. His theme this collection was birds and very colourful ones at that. He uses colour well generally but this collection is one of his more colourful yet. The above jacket really stands out for me, the pattern cutting involved to create the shoulder scallop makes the coat look extremely classy while the external zip retains an air of cool.

This dress is something I would love to wear but never would, the primary colours and houndstooth are a great combination while the simple accessorising with thick black tights will always be classy in my book.

The above jacket is luxe, almost sportswear so very dressed down for Saunders but the shoulders give it an edgy cape like appearance

This dress is reminiscent of Marc Jacobs Concrete Jungle print yet with the shape of a skater dress

Look at the shoulders, slightly Margiela? The longer dresses really are not my kind of thing, hence sticking to showing you all the shorter dresses.

The skater skirt and tight bodice look great, this look could be easily recreated with vintage and maybe the American Apparel skater dress, hmm. Need to give that a go.

Jonathan Saunders really emphasized the waist and legs with this collection, looks like we're going to have to get the pins in shape and a Mad Men waistline pronto.
