PRE-FALL 2014 FAVORITES

What is Pre-Fall anyway?
Pre-fall—it’s the season between seasons, the transitional wardrobe hitting stores in May, carrying you all the way to the chillier months. These early fall collections helps to fill a gap in the retail market between the spring and fall collections.

"Pre-Fall" offers fashion editors, journalists and retail buyers a preview of what to anticipate in a designer's official fall collection, allowing them to plan their editorial and commercial efforts ahead of time. The season also presents an opportunity to snap up some excellent clothes less beholden to trends than true "fall" looks—including lighter pieces that can be worn immediately and are largely untouched by the fashion press's overexposing glare. 
Chloe & BCBG Max Azria
Philosophy & Rachel Comey
Jason Wu & Oscar de la Renta
Burberry Prorsum & Donna Karan
Proenza Schouler, Derek Lam, Michael Kors (last 2)
ACNE Studios & Alexander Wang
Marni & Alberta Ferretti
Lovely neutrals at DKNY's Pre-Fall 2014 showing.

My Pre-Fall roundup offered something not-so-old but very new, with a touch of boho-flirty, lots of texture, pretty neutrals and unexpected prints for early fall, jackets, coats in every shape and silhouette, and this is not even my Fall 2014 Review, early fall dressing presented perfect outerwear teasers for fall. The season of the skirt is definitely represented for "Pre-Fall", knit-tastic didn't disappoint, thank you Jason Wu and Chloe, dress & boots, "I die"and enough leg-barring sexiness to make you forget about cooler weather that's ahead. All-in-all "Pre-Fall 2014" Is pretty much what I expected, and that is quite a good thing, I want a peek into what's really happening for Fall Ready-to-Wear 2014, I want wearable fashion, not a lot of trends, gimme shape and volume, panels, pleats, and draping. I want the unexpected and the unexpected like couture-esque embroidery, dyed furs,  (faux fur)...I want the fashion fairy-tale.

Can you guess which designer's theme was titled" Nordic nights at sea"? I'll give you one hint...that blue hue. Enjoy and Be Inspired!
