Once again, Jonathan Saunders's collection was all about color, but not in the way you might expect.

Sunset colors: warm, muted pinks yellows and blues were seen in the clothes, as well as a large backdrop at the end of the runway, which helped give the great collection an even more cohesive feel. Seventies-inspired looks added to the show's psychedelic vibe.

Despite this being a spring collection, jackets were key--seen in '70s silhouettes in contrasting colors with wide lapels, paired over gorgeous sheer silk button-downs with floral appliques and subtly shimmering loose knee-length shirts

While the color palette may have been more labored, the clothes themselves felt leisurely. There were satiny embroidered track jackets paired with trousers that had the silhouette of a sweatpant--like something you could just chill at home in. We are in the era of Panama dressing, after all.

But there were dressier items too--like a dress with blue and peach panels and green fluttery sleeves with not-too-scandalous slits. The dress, like just about every individual piece in the collection, was rooted in wearability despite the more experimental print and color mixes.
