Resort 2012: Jonathan Saunders

Jonathan Saunders Resort 2012 collection

Need a picker-upper today? Try Jonathan Saunders’ resort collection.

The London-based Scottish designer’s in town to show and shoot his resort offerings, and they’re the perfect balance for mood-boosting color and ridiculously chic that he’s come to be known for.

If you're looking for formalwear, we say trade in your go-to LBD for his gorgeous black column dress, topped with a graphic yellow and cream-colored top. Need an office-worthy sheath that can also take you out at night? A short-sleeved tailored dress is conservative enough, but comes in bright orange and blue. A poppy red and hot pink silk top shows that color on color can be just right—brave Saunder-ites are encouraged to try it with an equally bright pencil skirt and a red lip.

I'm as stuck in an all-black rut as any other New Yorker, but consider me motivated.
