Saunder: Fall/Winter 2015

Emily Saunder’s inspiration often comes from a deep understanding of the subject at hand. For fall, it was fueled by Hillary Mantel, an English author who told the story behind Henry VIII’s split from his first wife Catherine and subsequently with Rome.

 

The silhouettes sway from romantic and feminine to masculine tailoring the two tied together by a thoroughly modern take on Tudor fashions and times.

You’ll see reflections of this novel creatively dispersed throughout the collection. Her selction of rich colors and textures couldn’t be more right for fall and consist of traditional Anglo fabrics such as tweeds, plaids and tartans tailored to the brand’s aesthetic which has always been relaxed and effortless silhouettes but as evolved into sophisticated and buttoned up. The rich hunter blouse with matching suit jacket and pant is a perfect example of this. There’s also the selection of chic little black dresses. One of her favorites is an army green flight jacket with patches that features a family crest of one of Henry VIII’s wives and his own. A standout is the outwear. From military looks, embellishments and a enveloping fur jacket, there’s much to be desired.
