Jonathan Saunders


Monk House Design welcomes new eyewear label Jonathan Saunders into the mix. In 2003, Jonathan Saunders launched his eponymous label and has since become known as one of London’s design luminaries. Having shown on schedule for over 10 years, he has established his name as synonymous with innovation in the domains of print, pattern and craftsmanship, and he is consistently hailed as one of the most exciting and captivating fashion designers of the London showcase.

Jonathan Saunders, the brand, creates luxurious colourful fashion that embraces traditional print, textile design techniques and innovation. He balances creativity with functionality to produce clothing and accessories that are optimistic, sophisticated and wearable. Originally born in Scotland, Saunders graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1999 with a BA in Printed Textiles, going on to graduate from Central Saint Martins in 2002 with an MA with distinction in Printed Textiles. His nuanced understanding of the intricacies of design have since allowed him to unite seemingly disparate colours and patterns in kaleidoscopic harmony, and his creative understanding of fashion has resulted in collaborations with dancers, artists and interiors companies alike. 

Expect to see soft subtle colours in desert and mint alongside strong and modern shapes with beautiful gradient lenses. The classic tortoise is a staple for any summer wardrobe and the Ellis style in black and white camouflage is a sure fire way to stand out in a crowd. With high quality lenses and UV protection, we are sure you guys will love these just as much as we do.
