This season, the Fall/Winter 2014 not only drew inspiration from an international influence, but also from the 80s BBC miniseries ‘The Singing Detective,’ a story of a pulp fiction novelist hospitalized for a chronic condition and who spends most of his time in a hallucinogenic dream state where he blends his fantasies about being a noir detective with the reality of the memories of growing up in wartime Britain. The collection marries the femme fatale aesthetic of the film noir era with the palette and geometric patterns of the 1980s to create a beautiful collection ideal for the contemporary New York woman.

Collaborating with SAUNDER for the second time, native New Yorker and Emily’s childhood friend, jewelry designer Megan Isaacs, created a capsule collection of ten necklaces that showcased the film noir feel through a pop art lens. For added flair, the hair and make-up evoked the wartime era with vintage hair styles featuring deep waves and simple yet sexy lips in vibrant reds, wines and plums.

Known for its beautifully unique and decidedly feminine pieces, SAUNDER is designed and manufactured in New York City as are the handcrafted eco-friendly jewelry collection of Megan Issacs.
