Round Two: New York Fashion Week | Jonathan Saunders

February 4th, 2008 2:36 PM
London designer Jonathan Saunders packed them in, including Anna Wintour and Franca Sozzani, editor-in chief of Italian Vogue. Again, I'm thrilled with the resurrection of classic styles and clean lines. I love the 1940's-inspired fan-pleated kick-skirt (right) (which I'd hoped to see paired with seamed stockings and foot boots) it’s nice to see the hemlines longer and more sophisticated. The satin collar is great, but somehow the asymmetrical top is thrown off by the boldly symmetrical front lines on the skirt. I would have loved to see this in a dress version and not a two piece.
(Left) Saunders shows off his talent for detail, modern lines and exquisite finish with an elegant long dress with satin details, more fan-pleating and an open back. Tres Chic! This is both sexy and classy, which most have a hard time pulling off. The army color might not be flattering for all skin types, but looks good here! --Eve
