Jonathan Saunders is rumoured to be Paul Smith’s
The Scottish fashion designer was the subject of gossip at men’s shows in Milan and many believe he is about to collaborate with the British design house.
Paul Smith’s classically designed pieces often feature quirky twists, which will blend well with Jonathan’s love of vibrant colour and graphic prints.
“A well-placed source confirmed in Milan this week that the young Scottish designer will indeed be working with Sir Paul and his team on their women’s clothes for next season,” reports the Fashion Telegraph.
Jonathan has also recently announced a limited edition capsule collection with Lyle & Scott for their Fall 14 collection, which showcased at last week’s Men’s Collections presentations in London.
Celebrities such as Madonna, Kylie Minogue and Sienna Miller favour his designs.
He has previously spoken about how immersed he gets in the world of fashion, which leaves little time for anything else.
“I love that world – the venue – seeing clothes on the models and creating the whole buzz. You live and breathe it and everything – even your health- gets sacrificed,” he told British magazine InStyle.
“I’d love to be the kind of designer who does a perfect, full-colour sketch and for the end result to come out looking exactly like that, but it’s not what happens. When you start putting fabrics together, often they don’t come together as you thought they would. There’s an instantaneous aspect of doing a collection that is not only exciting, but probably quite surprising to a lot of people.”
