JONATHAN SAUNDERS PRESENTS SPRING 2013 IN LONDON FASHION WEEK
I don't know where to begin with Jonathan Saunders' show because, much like his collection, I feel a bit all over the place. I loved most of the pieces, but, as an outsider, I couldn't follow the flow of thought, I couldn't comprehend the story (or history) behind the collection and I couldn't see any natural and harmonious transition between the looks. After reading about it yes, I could see why he put together so much, but if I hadn't read anything about it, I couldn't see the purpose of laminated leather with colour-blocking dresses and sequined two-pieces. I can't deny that I loved the collection and I would wear most of it (though not the fishscale-like dresses, I'm too everything for those!), but I just couldn't find the logic. But perhaps there wasn't supposed to be any logic and that was Saunders' logic...What are your feelings on this one?
