The 11 Best Looks From the Pre-Fall Collections

While the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter collections clearly get the most hype, interestingly, it’s the in-between collections, Resort and Pre-Fall, which typically earn the designers more money. This is because the collections feature slightly more wearable designs, which to us translates to prime time for scouting the future splurge purchases we’ll be introducing to our closets in a few months. The Pre-Fall 15 collections have all recently been released, so naturally we had to highlight the standouts.

Scroll down for your cheat sheet to the latest and greatest from your favourite designers.

The floral digital prints featured in many of the looks added the brand’s usual dose of cheeriness to a more somber colour palette this season.

McCartney said, “I want to say something with my clothes.” Say something she did with her playful collection featuring out-of-the-box cuts on otherwise classic pieces and noteworthy prints including the pictured psychedelic trees.

Pantone’s colour of the year, Marsala, was a major part of the colour story at Gucci.

This collection felt like classic Marni. The clashing prints and ‘70s colour palette was everything the coolest art teacher in the world would want to wear.

From a fresh take on a fisherman sweater to an outstanding assortment of dresses, this collection was one for the books.

Our favourite look from the David Bowie-inspired collection combines two of our favourite trends: off-the-shoulder dresses and dresses over pants.

The inimitable Jamie Bochert lent a certain edge to Lanvin’s printed ensembles this season.
