Peter Copping showed his first Pre-Fall collection for Oscar de la Renta. In gowns that channel Hollywood glamour and tweeds that offer a sophisticated take on Navajo weaves, we see America through fresh eyes.
It’s the time to strike a trend, (just) before it’s hot. Pre-Fall where designers tend to test drive ideas they'll blow out on the Fall runways. Invest in the girly (and newly-appealing) skirt suit: this two-piece is not going anywhere for Autumn/Winter.
If you loved the off-the-shoulder, try the exaggerated sleeve. Pre-Fall traditionally sees scaled down versions of editorial ideas. The exaggerated sleeve is big this season, but if you’re not one for bold statements, Ellery’s fluted tunic is the perfect subtle nod.
