Jonathan Saunders has taken it upon himself to make sure that you get some colour into your winter wardrobe. Check out our tour of his eye-poppingly bright presentation below.
Jonathan Saunders’ AW13 presentation was a glimpse into a procrastinating artist’s studio, from daubed paint prints on merino wool jumpers (according to Saunders he was inspired by “splodging paint onto paper at his desk”) to burnt orange palette collages on the wall.
Colour-bleed bomber jackets in sky blues and hot pinks emphasised that ombré is here to stay – pointing out that it’s the boys turn to have a crack at the trend. There was a wearable neatness about the olive green colour block woollen coats, and with casual but form-fitting bomber jackets and trousers, this was one collection to flatter the male silhouette. As the models got their pose on, you couldn’t help but notice the vermillion colour pop soles contrasting with the dark patent leather on their slip-ons. Trust Saunders to bring a barrage of colour to AW13 – come next autumn, we’ll probably need it.
