>> It’s grandiose and scary to throw around the word perfection. I cringe sometimes backstage at shows when you hear extravagant cries by old French ladies at the shows in Paris who cry out “C’est magnifique” or “C’est parfait” in the manner of a camp dame. Afterall isn’t “parfait” a pedestal too high to put a designer upon and when you throw out that P word, isn’t the only way to go down thereafter? I really really want to hesitate using the p word with regards to Jonathan Saunders’ A/W 11-12 collection seeing as I obviously don’t want to see him in a downward spiral, yet as I look back on the show, I struggle to see any fault there. It seems this was the season where print, colour, placement of that print and colour together silhouette and the styling extras all came together in a harmony for Saunders, and you’re trying mighty hard to see something wrong with it but you just can’t. I may well have clasped my hands together at the end and nearly exclaimed “Oh it’s stupendous!” at the end much like the French dames.
