CUTTING A RUG: Jonathan Saunders made a quick stop in Los Angeles on Wednesday to show stylists his resort collection and to celebrate his collaboration with The Rug Company, comprising two area rugs and two runners that showcase his knack for mixing bright colors and patterns. “I did furniture and product design before fashion and I come from a textiles background, so there’s a real synergy between what I do in fashion and this process,” he said. “Interiors is a big investment because they’re around for a lot longer. A rug is kind of a commitment.” Saunders joins other designer collaborators such as Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood, Matthew Williamson, Diane von Furstenberg and Tom Dixon. Next up: he’ll design a collection of cushions.
