Pre-Fall 2011

Personally, I am a non-believer in the concept of "between season" collections. Pre-Fall, Pre-Spring, Resort, Cruise etc.... No. Just no. There's no point! To make a brand exclusive, and keep it at a luxury state, one must keep it exclusive and at a luxury state. Spring and Fall. That's all you need to show.

Having said that, I don't make the rules when it comes to fashion, and like most others in the industry, I obsessively wait for a designers next collection. So, these are my 3 favorite Pre-Fall looks.

No one captures effortless cool quite like Alexander Wang does. I chose this look simply because of it's versatility. While the color may not be flattering on everyone, there is no denying that it is a gorgeous color. This dress would look great for day paired with some leather pieces, but because of its length it could easily transition to evening with the simple addition of a sheer nude, floor-length slip dress underneath.

Nothing screams fall more to me than a trench coat. And who does trench coats better than Burberry? Nobody. Christopher Bailey has done an admittedly fabulous job with Burberry, with a special mention for the Prorsum line. Everything about this look works as a whole. It's seductive, it's dramatic yet demure, it's wearable, it's many things. But above all, it is FIERCE. LOOK AT THOSE BOOTS!!!!!!!

Yes, yes, I know that fall is meant to be a rather dreary season. But who ever said that fashion couldn't be used as a form of escapism? Crystal Renn looks amazing in this cerulean concoction courtesy of Zac Posen. I especially adore how upon first glance the color is the only thing that really stands out; however, one begins to notice all the detail that has gone into this dress. A perfect example of entre-deux and cutwork.

So, those are my 3 favorite Pre-Fall looks. What are yours?
