Topshop Introduces New Jonathan Saunders Collection For 2010
January 25, 2010, 3:59 am
Topshop, the high-street fashion giant, has announced its
partnership with the colour and print master Jonathan Saunders is to
continue into 2010 with the launch of a new 2010 denim and devore
collection, hitting Topshop stores at the end of January.
Geometric shapes and block colours run throughout this five-piece collection. A
denim pencil skirt and matching cropped strapless basque are in panelled denim dyed
in three different jean colours, ideal to be worn together, but can also be styled
to great effect apart. A geometric devore grid design runs down the full length of a
black body-conscious full length dress, a sweatshirt and a loose-fitting jersey tee,
great for relaxed urban living.
Scottish born print designer Jonathan Saunders graduated from Glasgow School of Art
in 1999 with a BA in Printed Textiles, going on to graduate from Central Saint
Martin's in 2002 gaining an MA with distinction in Printed Textiles. Jonathan
joined the New Gen scheme for three seasons 2004-2005, sponsored by Topshop, which
began their working relationship. Following three seasons showing in New York,
Saunders has recently returned to London.
One of Saunders' trademarks has been his use of traditional silk screening
techniques, developing the concept of engineering prints around pattern pieces.
Whilst print is still integral to his designs, more recently he has focused on the
development of an architectural, clean form, perfectly displayed in his devore
jersey pieces for Topshop.
Jonathan commented: "My collection for Topshop this season has been inspired by
sportswear and workwear, as well as the bold and graphic shapes of the Memphis
movement. It's perfect for urban city dwellers".
The new collection is Jonathan's fourth for Topshop and will be available through
selected stores: Oxford Circus, London Selfridges, Liverpool, Manchester Arndale,
and online at Topshop.com.
