Jonathan Saunders at London Fashion Week SS’13

From the Barbican and the Hayward, to the Tate Modern – Jonathan Saunders knows how to put on a show. With Strange by The Wire adding to the atmosphere, it was the Scottish choreographer and dancer Michael Clark who provided inspiration for the SS’13 collection.

“It was focused on everybody that was having fun when I was born. I wanted to move on from this buttoned-up proud woman. It felt relevant for the girl to be pared-down and simplified, but sexy. I had to move on, but the house is built on a foundation of colour and print, so how do you do that?” — Jonathan Saunders

Well, to answer that, Saunders went on to start the collection with a metallic leather skirt – and continued with olive and oil-slick hues before mesh tops backed in black and patent burgundy leather with droplet motifs.

Last summer’s paisley was replaced with graphic stripes and droplets, sequins and material that moved to create a daring and fluid intent. Overall, it created a feeling of, well, “Disco,” Jonathan Saunders told Vogue, “and shine.”

With no show notes, it was up to the audience to make up their minds. And the overwhelming feeling? It’s party time.
