Calvin Klein offers its signature minimal yet refined aesthetic for the pre-fall season. Bringing a hint of rebelliousness to its austere image, the label offers leather work in the form of a sack dress and oversize top. The pre-fall collection can be summed up in two words: long and lean–the billowing silhouettes worn by Simona Andrejic are a perfect fit for those looking to show a little leg in between the summer and fall seasons.

The pre-fall 2011 collection from Chanel was themed, Paris-Byzance, after its Byzantine inspiration found in Empress Theodora. If possible, the pre-fall season brought an even more opulent and lavish showing than spring with a heavy emphasis on gold trimmed jackets, exciting silhouettes and crystal adorned bodices. Despite the antique influence, creative director Karl Lagerfeld grounded the show with Chanel’s signature relaxed elegance.
