It has been a little over a year since Scottish designer Jonathan Saunders shuttered his signature label, thereby green lighting an eventual move five months later to assume the role as chief creative officer at Diane von Furstenberg Studio. The announcement last May was met with enthusiasm, which is given glorious voice in the February 2017 issue of Vogue for the publication’s moment of the month featuring amongst others Grace Elizabeth and Lineisy Montero. Photographed by Josh Olins and styled by Alex Harrington, the moment of unadulterated joy shared between Grace and Lineisy, both wearing Diane von Furstenberg dresses designed by Saunders. As moments go, this not only ranks up there, but also shows great promise for an ambitious designer at a legendary label.
