Jonathan Saunders has created a stylish beachwear collection to ensure we’re looking our best when we hit the beach this summer.

The limited edition range of beachwear and beach bags were created as part of a collaboration with Thomson.

The products have been designed and released as part of the celebrations marking the opening of the exclusive 5* Thomson Sensatori Resort Jamaica, which opened on 1 May.

Famous for his use of daring prints and bold colours, Jonathan Saunders has dressed royalty and A-list stars including the Duchess of Cambridge, Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica-Parker and Beyoncé. These chic new beachwear designs for Thomson boast his signature style of graphic prints and striking colours, in line with the vibrant surroundings in Jamaica.

Jonathan Saunders comments: “The backdrop to the new Sensatori Resort Jamaica was the starting point and the inspiration for designing the beachwear and the Amber pool area in the hotel - sun, sea, sand, colours and relaxation.  I started by choosing the colour palette to run through the Thomson designs, combining bold Jamaican brights with relaxing earthy tones and the idea of a repeated graphic taken from a dress worn by the Duchess of Cambridge worked perfectly for the beach bags.  For the pool and beach area, this was my first interior design project and I drew on my experience of studying design, fashion and textiles to create a relaxing area for guests to make their holiday unique and help them unwind in the sun. Together with Thomson I have thought about every detail and hope the luxurious touches will make the holiday experience for guests at Sensatori Resort Jamaica even more special.”

The stunning sarong is available in four carefully selected colour palettes, which includes a mixture of bold blues, bright oranges and calming neutral tones, inspired by the breathtaking Jamaican scenery. The sarongs, on-trend in block colour design, are ideal for adding a touch of glamour to holidaymaker’s summer style.

The beach bag for women, complete with eye catching print design, is also available in four striking colour combinations, using a similar colour palette to that of the sarongs.  The bags are inspired by Jonathan’s famous graphic print dress as worn by the Duchess of Cambridge on the Jubilee Tour.  The collection also offers men a touch of holiday style with a grey, blue and white casual bag complete with both  long strap and short handles and finished in a soft canvas material.

Saunders’ bespoke pool area encourages relaxation through the use of vibrant colours, combined with subtle tones and soft fabrics. The turquoise, yellows and blue featured on the Bali beds, cushions and loungers make the Amber area a highlight of the luxurious hotel whilst remaining true to its idyllic surroundings.

Guests checking into the new 5* resort from June 9th will be able to perfect their poolside style with the fashionable beach accessories which they will receive as a gift from Thomson for a limited time. What’s more, guests will also have access to the fashionable Amber pool and beach area, which has been accessorized and named exclusively by Saunders in his hotel design first. 

For fashion followers who aren’t able to visit the new resort this year, a limited number of products will also be available to purchase in selected Thomson stores across the UK with all proceeds going to the NSPCC.

Jeremy Ellis, Marketing & Digital Director at Thomson comments: “We are delighted to have opened our newest 5* Sensatori Resort in Jamaica featuring the Jonathan Saunders Amber Pool and to unveil his stunning range of beachwear and beach bags designed exclusively for us.  This partnership is part of our ongoing collaborations with top designers to bring to life Thomson’s ‘designed for you’ proposition and the unique holiday experiences you can’t get from anywhere else.”
