Jonathan Saunders

"Saunders' collection didn’t subscribe to the airy, effortless looks found mostly on exotic-locale vacationers, or most resort collections for that matter. While he described his palette as earthy, the pieces took on the bold acid-tones and larger-than-life floral prints that made him popular. What he calls a true resort collection didn’t fall short in the least with jersey, cotton, and silk fabrics that moved with a woman's shape." —Deanne Kaczerski, Web Director

Cynthia Rowley

"In true form, Cynthia Rowley’s presentation wowed from first look to the last—a white A-line midi-dress, with a sheer hem. Her head-to-toe patterns worked effortlessly together and every piece had major “buy me now” appeal—this editor wanted just about everything from the cropped pants and sheer skirts to the über-cool rashguards." —Deanne Kaczerski, Web Director
