Voilà, a new year, and the fashion show marathon for Autumn & Winter 2013-2014 has just begun in London. Yesterday afternoon saw the disclosure of what the perplexing designer JONATHAN SAUNDERS has planned for next winter: an eruption of colours on highly desirable knitwear, delectable bomber jackets and grand coats. Later yesterday evening the collection was celebrated some more, with an exclusive dinner party organised by Mr. SAUNDERS, the SELFRIDGES department store, and, indeed FANTASTIC MAN. For those who missed it: there was smoked Loch Etive trout with a fennel and mixed radish salad for a starter, and filet the beef for main, or sautéed wild and cultivated mushrooms with soft polenta for our vegetarian friends. The guests included the following individuals featured in FANTASTIC MAN: TATE MODERN’s CHRIS DERCON, the fashion critic TIM BLANKS, singer WILLY MOON, gallerist MAUREEN PALEY, tailor PATRICK GRANT, actor RUSSELL TOVEY, writer CHARLIE PORTER, THE XX singer OLIVER SIM, and, of course, JONATHAN SAUNDERS.
