December 19th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

As a season between seasons it’s easy to overlook the importance of pre-fall, but the mini-season is full of lookbooks, presentations and the occasional high profile show. When it comes to casting certain models have been clearly dominating the field with multiple appearances in designer pre-fall lookbooks, which can often serve as foreshadowing for campaigns and other lucrative work with the team behind the scenes. Take a look at which girls are doing well this pre-fall and the myriad of ways designers put their versatile beauty to good use.

JULIANA SCHURIG
PREFALL LOOKBOOKS : Burberry Prorsum, Chloe, Diesel, Elizabeth and James & J. Mendel

As one of fashion’s in demand cool girls, Juliana has been appearing everywhere this pre-fall. Brands like Diesel and Elizabeth & James don’t share a link with Chloe & Burberry on the surface, but Juliana’s appearances in imagery for each of those lines shows her ability to add a touch of chic to high & low end looks.

MIJO MIHALJCIC

PREFALL LOOKBOOKS – Prabal Gurung, Thakoon & Sachin & Babi

We’re not sure why designers have been swathing Mijo in layers of print and pattern this season, but so far we’re loving it – she has a way of making even the most unusual combinations look easy & wearable.

MAIYET
Designer: Kristy Caylor
Model: Alana Bunte

The vision for Maiyet has always represented a global mindset and this season with founder Kristy Caylor taking the design reigns, that perspective is clearer and more appealing than ever. With references ranging from Jazz Age designer, Emilie Floge’s couture pieces to El Anatsui’s wood carvings, Caylor certainly isn’t lacking for inspiration and the pieces she crafts represent an exciting mix of old and new. Standouts included graphic printed overcoats and flowing, lighter than air dresses worn with ease.

CHLOE
Designer: Clare Waight Keller
Models: Elisabeth Erm, Marique Schimmel & Caroline Brasch Nielsen

Chloe strikes a nonchalantly elegant mood with a collection that focuses on the beauty of a laid back look. Relaxed tailoring and a beachy color palette create a feel that is undone, yet sophisticated – even the evening gowns have a casualness that makes them enticing. Guipures and embroidered details add a sense of playfulness, while standout accessories reinforce the house’s heritage as originator of the it-bag – keep an eye on the gold bar embellished Clare satchel.
