Full of mesmerizing colors, transporting prints and slightly subversive, yet controlled chic, Jonathan Saunders’ show was a hit. Continuing his exploration of womanly elegance — with nods to the Forties and Fifties — the designer turned out sun dresses, full or pencil skirts, sensual camisoles and pajamalike shirts. His signature prints had Indian and Turkish airs in an impressive palette ranging from soft pastels to acid shades. Elsewhere, polka dots ran over simple shapes like stiff military jackets. A master colorist, Saunders also experimented with mixing fabrics and textures, such as chunky knitwear with barely there tulle skirts, or stiff brocade skirts paired with delicate camisoles. It all blended perfectly.
