Fresh off his men’s show in London, Jonathan Saunders was in New York for pre-fall, discussing what his female customers would want come June. “Last season was so graphic so I wanted to go more feminine in lighter fabrics that you could buy now, wear now,” he said. A Fifties photo of Jackson Pollock and a girlfriend inspired Saunders’ clean-lined silhouettes and ladylike styles. Those were used as a canvas for his new fabric techniques that he said we’ll see more of come fall. He heat-pressed silk floral appliqués onto viscose separates, for example, while a twin set’s puckered knitting pattern appeared gridlike and played off pretty ombré pencil skirts. For good measure, Saunders then sent his girl to bed in a pair of paint-splattered silk pj’s.
