Jonathan Saunders & Preen… at Debenhams

Hey All,

Isn’t it weird… sometimes when a designer collaborates with the High Street, there is such a huge song and dance about it. Cue, massive hoards outside the store and more gnashing of teeth and weeping than the Book of Revelations.

So when I was going up the escalators in Henry Street, I was pretty (make that really pleasantly) surprised when I saw that both Preen and Jonathan Saunders had launched diffusion lines in Debenhams.

A lot of the High Street / designer collaborations are over-priced, under-designed, cheap, tat. But Debenhams have been doing designer collaboration for years and I think they know what we, as consumers, want and deserve for our ‘dollar’.

Both of these collections offer good quality pieces; well finished and although not terribly avant garde in terms of design, they include some striking key pieces and prints.

It’s the price point, however, that I’m I most impressed by. (From €37.50 for T.Shirts / Vests – €299 Preen Leather Jacket – see below).

I tried some Jonathan Saunders peg leg trousers, €60

And a Jonathan Saunders bold print mini dress, €68

I wanted to try this, but they didn’t have my size…

As far as the Preen collection is concerned I’m waiting for this dress:

Or this Blouse…

Or maybe these…

The collection is available in the Henry Street store and on line at Debenhams.ie.

Preen and Jonathan Saunders will be collaborating with Debenhams for a further 3 seasons and are due to be joined by Jonathan Kelsey by the end of March / early April.

Yours,

Whisty Xx

    I saw these at the weekend also and loved a maxi jersey by Jonathon Saunders and a sequin mini in a grey/blue colouring!

    That Preen leather jacket is gorgeous. Must pop into Deb in town and see when it’s coming in

    Oh I agree those peg leg trousers are fab! The colour and the fit make them the perfect Spring/Summer purchase
