You'll Want to Get Up-Close and Personal With Kate Spade's Fall Collection

Saunders Shows A Perky Pollini

Scottish designer Joanthan Saunders is having a truly excellent Fall, his Target Go International collection will be hitting stores in October, his own Spring 2009 collection was a voluminous expansion of his usually tailored vision, and his first collection for Pollini was a pleasantly colorful and commercial interpretation of the brand. Pollini's parent company, Aeffe, will no doubt be pleased to see just how well Saunders has been able to combine his own expertize in prints and tailoring with Pollini's rich history of vibrant hued design.

The collection was just a little more girlie than typical Saunders with frills, chiffon dresses and polka dots but it was in the graphic colorblock appeal of green and purple or orange and pink that we saw the designers personal style shine within the classic Pollini fair. We were impressed that Saunders strayed from his preference for sheen and bold bright colors, instead tempering the impact of the collection with more muted hues and even black and gray. This left us feeling the collection was solidly in touch with the preferences of today's consumers who may as it turns out be into Italian fashion for somewhat more prosaic reasons: it lasts.
