The Weight of the World on her Shoulders

New York…Jonathan Saunders

The bold shocking shades of crimson, marigold and teal channeled bold strength and fierce confidence in Saunders’ collection of abbreviated dresses and coats. Bold silhouettes with extreme hemlines shifted emphasis to shoulders, creating a striking yet feminine hourglass shape. Clean lines, color blocking and geometric shapes enhanced the distinct silhouette with balancing symmetry. An original tribal patterned jacquard weave played with proportions in relation to crystal-studded platforms and booties.

    I LOVE IT! Although yes, somewhat Balenciaga in silhouette, the boldness of color use here is something to appreciate. I am seeing a consistent trend of strong shoulder lines with every show, the power woman is back!
