When we visited, Saunders was just starting to think about Spring/Summer '12. “I’m looking at the artist Stuart Davies, a mid-century American painter,” he said. “I picked him up because he makes quite similar work to what I’m doing, and it’s always good to see someone else's point of reference. He works a bit with fluidity, though, so I might go crazy this season and put curves and circles in the collection.”
