Suzy Menkes at London Fashion Week: Day Three
24 Февраля 2015
The rainbow of shades on the pillars that pierced the catwalk sent an instant message that Jonathan Saunders was building his show on colour.
Dresses and jackets with swirly waves of red competed for attention with straight lines of similar brightness.
Colour might curl across the body of a dress in waves of orange, blue and silver.
Most evident was a visual rupture, when straight lines bisected circles of colour.
As a geometric statement using set square and compass, it was an impressive exercise. But there was something awkward about the show — and not just the lace-up boots that had the models wobbling past each chromatic pillar.
Saunders has been working for some time on colours as body language. This season he turned it into an art form. But too much artistry and not enough down-to-earth clothing may make for wardrobe complications.
