    Honestly,from the vantage point I've been getting,I haven't really seen anything extraordinary from Saunders yet. While his craft may be great I don't see anything noteworthy enough to be compared to McQueen.

    I think the enfant terrible in the way of McQueen and Galliano,would be Robert Cary-Williams. Too bad he doesn't get alot of attention because the guy is really quite good and he's an all-out radical too.

    My mum was going on about Saunders the other day, asking me to find out more about him. Thanks for the article!

    I would'nt call him an enfant terrible, I'd call him a fantastic textile print designer.

    i find him too hyped for his own good,
    he sure can create some cool, modern Gucci prints
    but i'd need to see more before i say 'enfant terrible'
    :p

    i saw the video for this show...and it was quite dramatic...i really didn't know about this guy's work..so i was shocked to see his use of shape and colour...it's very impressive and mature...
    i think he is a very talented artist...and would like to seee a lot of the prints painted on a canvas and hung on my wall...

    however...i'm not so sure i want to put some of these prints on my body...i do like the clours...as i said ....and i like some of the more graphic prints...they look somehow futuristic ...like a costume from a sci-fi film...which appeals to me...it somehow feels like moving forward in a world full of retro...there's just enough of the past in the narrow tight silhouette to be familiar...reminds me a bit of montana and mugler...but the patterns are very modern...

    mixed feelings...but definitely one to watch,,,, :p :flower:
