Bianca Saunders AW22

Who is Bianca Saunders ?

Bianca Saunders is a London based menswear designer. Her innovative exploration of “the spectrum of masculinity“ is sharp and very well structured.

She is the first Black British Designer to win the ANDAM (

Fashion Award. As a result, she received 300.000 euros and one year of mentoring from Balenciaga’s CEO , Cédric Charbit. At only 27, Saunders success journey is just beginning.



Bianca Saunders had her debut show in Paris showcasing her Autumn/Winter Collection “A Stretch“. Here are our favorites !


1.

A classic! Reminds me of the 90’s. The jacket’s silhouette is more loose and can be combined with like a plain white tee or print shirt. Also this loose straight form fitting jeans are amazing. I can imagine it with some crisp white sneakers.


2.

This piece is more structured and more form fitting. Although this type of Jean jacket is quite popular, I still like it. What I like the most is the front split at the end of this pair of jeans. The trendy split is more seen in womenswear. I like the idea !

3.

This is interesting! We have structure, asymmetrical lines and loose fitting combined together here. At this point, I’m really curious what Saunders thought - process was. This is different and bold. Love this, I would wear it myself !




4.

Casually chic ! It’s simple but the fabric really elevates the whole outfit. Love this !


5.

This reminds me of my dad. No joke, my dad used to wear a similar jacket and pants on a Sunday when meeting friends&family. With this outfit you will not look negligé but presentable for different occasion.

6.

It’s giving 90’s R&B Group vibe. A classic tenue with a statement leather pants and a splash of color at the bottom - EFFORTLESS.




7.

I’m not really feeling this. What do you think?

8.

I call this  »À l’époque« (Back in the day). You know 60s and 70s. I would pair these pants with a green or beige shirt, even black would go well together.

9.

I absolutely love this color combination! I can see myself wearing this.



10.

Yesss, totally feeling it! Pair this alert red outfit with some white sneakers, a bracelet and some black sunglasses- and nobody can tell you nothin’ !

11.

It’s a yes for me ! The satin scarf really completes the whole look.



Overall Saunders “A Stretch” collection was a hit and she did deliver perfection & boldness and a beautiful mix of minimalism and color.
