Jonathan Saunders Pre-Fall 2013 womenswear collection possesses bold and bright patterns tailored in boxy and classic styles. The designer, known for being the "Scottish prince of prints," continues to live up to his reputation with this line. Fine fabrics are adorned with bold and graphic prints and color blocking that is oh so chic.

Multi-colored graphic prints that are reminiscent of bold brush strokes are the highlight pattern of the collection as it can be seen on a variety of dresses, pants and button up shirt combinations. Interestingly enough, Mr.Saunders took inspiration from the expressive brushstrokes of Francis Bacon.

The designer also made use of some of the most rich and beautiful colors including cobalt blue, oxblood, dusty pinks and mustard yellows. To top it off, the Jonathan Saunders Pre-Fall collection continued to use the fading hombre color variation on several of its pieces, which gives the collection a polished vibe.
