Jonathan Saunders Fall 2012

High up on the nineteenth floor of Broadgate Tower yesterday evening, overlooking London as the sun was setting, was the beautiful location for the Jonathan Saunders Fall 2012 presentation.

I love each piece from look one to 41. Why?

Clashing prints, bold colours and an array of Fall 2012 Christian Louboutin heels.

I love how a gingham skirt was paired with a striped sweater and a floral embroidered skirt. On paper that may sound overwhelming, but in reality, it was beautiful.

We saw many tailored jackets, high-collared crisp white shirts, cigarette pants with zipper details going up the sides, A-line skirts, ombre sweaters, tea-dresses and fitted coats.

Models’ sported dressage ponytails styled with a thick black ribbon.

Key accessories apart from the Loubies included sun visors to add a sporty feel to the collection.

Whilst we didn’t see any red carpet gowns in this collection, there any many options for the chic and beautiful for TV appearances, photocalls and indie events like the Independent Spirit Awards and Sundance Film Festival.

Jonathan Saunders is just one of many talented designers due to launch at the British Designers Collective boutique which will open soon at Bicester Village.

More news on this to follow.

Front Row: Pixie Geldof, Leigh Lezark, Anna Wintour and Olivia Palermo

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Sarah Jessica Parker, Freida Pinto, Emma Stone, Samantha Cameron, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Anna Friel, Emilia Clarke, Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo, Emma Watson, Kate Bosworth and Elizabeth Olsen

Christina Ricci In Jonathan Saunders – 2012 Elle Style Awards

Christina Ricci, who is currently in London working on a project, attended the 2012 Elle Style Awards at the Savoy Hotel this evening.

The petite actress with the stance and presence of a 6ft supermodel looked as chic as always wearing a Jonathan Saunders Resort 2012 gown.

Black has always been a colour that works so well for Christina, and this is no exception.

Her elegant crepe gown has a satin bustier and a sheer pleated overlay.

A black studded fold-over clutch, gold drop earrings and Cinnamon glossy lip colour completed her look.

Sarah Jessica Parker In Jonathan Saunders & Antonio Berardi – Crown Oaks Day

Sarah Jessica Parker may have been in Melbourne, Australia for the Oaks Ladies Day 2011 Spring Carnival, but she was flying the flag for British Fashion.

The star wore a Jonathan Saunders Spring 2012 pink ombre sleeveless dress which was the perfect choice for Ladies Day.

Her dress was teamed with an Antonio Berardi Spring 2012 tailored silver coat, a string of pearls and mint green Manolo Blahnik pumps.

After wearing a hat which totally overwhelmed her yesterday, SJP opted for a bejewelled headpiece.

The piece was made by her hairdresser Serge Normat, who also styled her tresses into this elaborate bun.

This is SJP’s forth look this week.

Which one is your favourite?

Vera Wang? Chanel? Prabal Gurung? or this Jonathan Saunders dress?

Emma Stone In Jonathan Saunders – 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala

Emma Stone and her co-stars from her hit movie ‘The Help’ won ‘Best Ensemble Cast’ at the 15th Annual Hollywood Film Awards Gala which took place in LA last night.

The actress wore a dress from the Jonathan Saunders Spring 2012 collection, which is yet another first look.

It seems like stars are only wearing Spring 2012 looks now.

Her delicate beige pleated dress was paired with the same Christian Dior sandals we saw Shailene Woodley wear last week.

I adore her green Irene Neuwirth earrings which perfectly offset her pinned, wavy, sideswept locks.

Joy Bryant In Jonathan Saunders for Escada Sport – Escada’s Benefit for P.S. Arts

Joy Bryant attended the Escada Benefit for P.S. Arts at the SLS Hotel Beverly Hills Garden Terrace last night.

The model/actress wore a Jonathan Saunders for Escada Sport Resort 2012 dress.

This is the first time we’re seeing a celebrity wear a look from this collection.

Her black houndstooth print drop-waist dress has a sporty green flash stripe on each sleeve.

I love the dress as it’s so fun and youthful.

I hope we see more of this collection worn by celebrities on the red carpet, I just hope they don’t also pair their dresses with Moccasin boots.

The Jonathan Saunders for Escada Sport capsule collection goes on sale in Escada stores worldwide in November 2011.

Jonathan Saunders Spring 2012

Jonathan Saunders’ Spring 2012 tropical colour palette which had me in a trance from look 1.

The fruity collection mixed neon pink, lime green, lemon and orange with paisley prints which is fast becoming the designers’ signature.

I’m certain we will see Samantha Cameron wearing this collection as the designer served up many Lady-like pieces which would be perfect for her formal occasions.

Among the ultra-feminine dresses we saw silky tops, 50s-style full skirts, satin pants, lightweight colourful blazers paired with ombre print dress, sheer chiffon cami’s were paired with satin midi skirts.

For the red carpet we saw a sexy black long sleeve embroidered dress which also came in a full-length white version. The final white dress with chiffon sleeves deserves to be worn by someone statuesque like Erin O”Connor or Tilda Swinton.

The models tresses were perfectly coiffed by Paul Hanlon for Fekkai whilst the MAC team applied wing-tipped eyeliner.

Christian Louboutin provided the wedges and sandals which were just as colourful as the collection.
