Jonathan Saunders Designs For Jamaican Hotel
Jonathan Saunders is designing and accessorising the pool area at Jamaica’s Sensatori Resort
Need a reason to visit Jamaica? Here’s one. Jonathan Saunders is designing the pool area at the five-star Sensatori Resort in Jamaica for travel group Thomson, as well as a complementary collection of beach wear and accessories. He talks us through his inspiration for and thoughts on designing the pool area, which features bright colours and an excellent four-poster day bed that is calling our name.
Jonathan's past collections provided an ample source of inspiration for the whole range, including a certain dress that Kate Middleton's been seen in. The resulting beachwear is colourful and modern, including the inevitable sarong, and some great bags. These will be given to hotel guests, but the rest of us can get them at Thomson stores to tide us over until we get to Jamaica.
Jonathan is the latest fashion designer to tie up with a hotel; Karl Lagerfeld has got a 270-room project going in Macau, and designers from Azzedine Alaia to Oscar de la Renta have beautiful hotels to their name.
