Pre-Fall Finery Pt. 2

January 8th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Pre-fall looks keep coming, take a look at some of our favorites from the recent collections and be sure to share yours in the comments.

Model: Alex Yuryeva

After last season’s 80s kitsch escapade, Gaultier’s pre-fall offerings seem downright subdued though they don’t lack for elegance. Gaultier creates an eye-catching silhouette by splitting key looks in two, showing a masculine and feminine side all in one look with pinstriped suiting on the left and delicate knits on the left. Ensembles like this aren’t for the faint of heart, but the daring Gaultier client is sure to respond to these sartorial feats.

Model: Agne Konciute

Pringle never fails to deliver a strong knit and their pre-fall collection is no exception. Exploring the idea of classic twinsets with a twist, the line offers a refined mix of monochromatic outerwear looks and layered textures. Working with merino wool in a variety of textures and coordinating colors, the design team created an especially modern take on knitwear staples. Standouts included the jacquard turtlenecks and the stunning ribbed trench, rendered in dusty rose for a touch of romance amidst all the austerity.

Models: Nadja Bender, Nouk Torsing and Rosie Tapner

Chloe’s strength lies in its ability to tow the line between wearability and feminine flights of fancy. Claire Wright Keller understands this balance and her pre-fall collection offers a genteel take on wardrobe staples like the leather bomber jacket, minidress and structured overcoat. Delivered in an dainty palette of peach, mint and lipstick red, the Chloe look manages to be girly without verging into frou frou territory; with the addition of the sleek black pieces Wright-Keller gives the Chloe girl a chance to delve into more sophisticated territory.

Models: Brittany, Bergmeister, Valery Kaufmann, Santa Urbane and Alexandra Martynova

Is it just us or have all the cool girls been wearing Carven a lot lately? Designer Guillaume Henry has the market cornered on an appealing brand of quirky cool and his dresses always manage to look chic, yet unaffected. For his cinema influenced (Henry was inspired by Isabella Adjani’s look in Roman Polanski’s 1976 film, The Tenant) pre-fall lineup Henry created a series of youthful looks that mix beautifully. Printed overcoats layered over lacy dresses and thick knee-tights, topped off with giant glasses, metallic bomber jackets, fuzzy turtlenecks beneath mod-shifts, it all worked beautifully.
