Under Cover, the label from Japanese designer Jun Takahashi is providing Paris a whiff of the underground, but in London where edgy designer talent seems to blossom with the season, the buzz is out on Johnathan Saunders. Retro prints gone future and a precise skill for working slim and voluminous silhouettes together is winning Saunders quick friends while he simultaneously defines a rather desirable blend in fashion right now. His flowing anti-muu muu coats and dresses paired with leggings and tight fitting tops is just the mixture for slinking around and those prints are making sure you don’t go unnoticed. Keep an eye on this one.
