Tour operator Thomson has unveiled the limited edition range of beachwear and beach bags created by British designer Jonathan Saunders as part of an ongoing collaboration.
The products, which have been designed and released as part of the celebrations marking the opening of the 5* Thomson Sensatori Resort Jamaica, will be handed out to resort guests checking in from today (Monday 9 June).
Famous for his use of daring prints and bold colours Saunders has dressed royalty and A-list stars alike with fans including the Duchess of Cambridge, Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker and Beyoncé. The collection for Thomson includes a sarong in four carefully selected colour palettes, a beach bag for women inspired by Saunders’ famous graphic print favoured by the Duchess of Cambridge and a grey, blue and white casual bag form men.
As part of the collaboration Saunders has also accessorised and named the Amber pool and beach area at the Jamaican resort. Of the collaboration he said: “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.”
Marketing and digital director for Thomson, Jeremy Ellis, commented: “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.”
Those unable to visit the resort will be able to purchase a limited number of Saunders products in selected Thomson stores across the UK with all proceeds going to the NSPCC.
