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.
With the pre-fall season fully underway, Oscar de la Renta steps out with an elegant and impeccably tailored outing for the new season. Beginning with a mix and match of colorful separates, pattern and color was a huge theme seen throughout the show. Playing with volume and proportion, the show ended with stunning gowns tapered at the waist and attention to detail.
Bridging the gap between spring and fall, the pre-fall 2011 collection from Michael Kors juxtaposes easy silhouettes with bold color blocking. Light on prints, the line focuses on pleated skirts and leather accents. In addition to sophisticated shapes, a few pieces take on seductive drapes with high slits and sexy cut outs.
