Jonathan Saunders - Jonathan Saunders inspired by pin-ups

Jonathan Saunders was inspired by pin-ups for his upcoming collection.

The Scottish designer - who unveiled his autumn/winter 2013-14 collection earlier this year as part of London Fashion Week - aims to create unique designs for all of his ranges, this year taking inspiration from all things British and several influential artists.

He told Vogue.co.uk: ''I looked a lot at Brit pin-ups, like Diana Doors and those sort of characters that really celebrated womanhood, and David Lynch, Louise Bourgeois. Anything that's warm and in contrast to what I did the season before.

''I started with the colours and fabrics and working with alpaca wools and very textural fabrics with rubber and vinyl. I really like that combination, it looks really modern.''

Jonathan also made sure to focus on his regular pieces, especially separates.

He added: ''Separates are such an important of what I do and it's about women wearing it in their own way and seeing how they want to translate it.''

He previously took inspiration from London's Tate Modern museum for his spring/summer 2013 collection, creating graphic and simple designs resembling the building's exhibitions.

He said: ''A lot of it came from things that I love. I've always wanted to show here at the Tate Modern.

''There was an amazing Michael Clark performance here which is something I've always loved and been inspired by.''
