Jonathan Saunders F/W 201072011 / LFW Day-05

This fresh and youthful collection was inspired, the designer said, by a girl he'd known during his time at art school.

Saunders worked with a palette of mint, white, navy and orange; kept silhouettes centered on simple, drop-waisted dresses and A-line skirts; and let artsy details do the talking.

Hand-painted prints were a feature, such as overlapping blue and black graphic shapes on one chiffon top, or a black and white rose on an oversized black T-shirt.

Meanwhile, a mini in layers of navy and black fabric had its skirts cut into ribbons that fluttered as the model walked.

Unstructured knee-length skirts were printed with a pattern of irregular polkadots that graduated from red to peach.

Saunders sometimes added slouchy anoraks over dresses to create a sporty, utilitarian air. “I wanted to look at something that was more nostalgic for me,” the designer said after the show. “It felt relevant to have an easier silhouette.”
