Kiss your skinny denims goodbye. Wave au revoir to your neons. Bid adieu to blinding prints. The pre-fall collections by the world’s biggest fashion labels have conveniently tossed aside the vibrant and embraced the classics in a revamped avatar. If you’re an avid follower of latest fashion trends on a global level, you know how significant the chic in-between season between winter and summer – pre-fall – is. In no way does the season compromise on style, and therefore, the biggest labels bring only their best to the table. Here’s a comprehensive list of names you should watch out for in the upcoming season:
Giving us numerous ways to incorporate black into our work wardrobe, Givenchy offered classic without being basic in its show last pre-fall, which clearly ruled the 2015 trends in fashion. How else do you justify pleats and ruffles on definite black-and-white midis? If you’ve forever been fascinated by street style with a dash of “the striking”, Givenchy’s upcoming pre-fall collection is one to watch out for.
Miu Miu has long been synonymous with the evergreen 70s’ style that the label does at least one throwback to every year. Consider their last few shows in Paris and Milan, and you’ll see hints of the disco era in the form of broad-buckled belts, A-line midi dresses, and punkish hiking socks. Wait and watch – the fashion label seems to never fail at effortlessly presenting history in a contemporary fashion.
Ever-delightful and ever-refreshing, Valentino’s pre-fall fashion styles delineate Bohemian like no other. Whether it’s knit sweaters with exquisite floral embroidery, patchworks on suede, or firework prints seamlessly blended with tie-and-dye – Valentino manages to bring a touch of ethereal into the everyday work wardrobe.
Looking for eclectic? Stella McCartney is one label you cannot afford to miss! Always rendering sharp pieces for the real world, the designer offers trendy clothes that do wacky on an all new level (think two different animal prints on flouncy asymmetrical separates). If you’re a fan of faux furs and cable-knit sweaters, this is one label to have eyes on this pre-fall.
No pre-fall list is complete without the mention of Burberry – a label synonymous with classic trenches, bombers, and capes that set unprecedented standards for new trends in fashion every year! This pre-fall, turn your head to the label whose high-belted trench coats, shoe-hiding flare pants, shearling-lined parkas, and caped overcoats are every woman’s dream come true.
Always count on Chanel to depict an old-world charm whilst retaining the essence of the modern woman, in the form of power dressing. From classic black-and-whites that have forever been the fashion label’s forte to trusty pleated skirts, Chanel brings class to the runway in a manner other labels seldom do. Add to that the string of pearls that emanate pure allure, and you know that a deserving rendition to the classics is rarely missed out on by the French label.
