Pre-Fall 2012 Roundup

by Gloria Cases

It is clearly safe to say that this pre-fall 2012 was different and captivating. The designers left everyone anxious and intrigued towards their amazing new proposals for this fall season. Lim gave the 3.1 Phillip Lim pre-fall a comfortable look for the everyday life.

In every piece of this fabulous collection there was a kind simplicity that mesmerized.  Céline’s show was a perfect continuation of Phoebe Philo’s work in the French fashion house- the boy pants and blazers- but there was something about this collection, not only wearable, but it gave a modest style statement towards wearing menswear.

While trying to earn some recognition after Mac Gibbon, Claire Waight Keller made her pre-fall collection inspired in the vintage archives of Garry Winogrand, making clothing filled with layering and curious details that tried to capture the styles the photographer look for in the streets of New York during the 20th century. 

Diane Von Furstenburg made her looks with the use of classic prints, but there was something different about them. The line looked funky, sexy and for the most part, fun.

Mr. Alber Elbaz made the Lanvin collection, not only sophisticated and appealing, but also modern. The pre-fall collection has a futuristic touch with colors and textures that gave the brand a contemporary look.  For this season, Stella McCartney left her comfort zone; her looks were simple, colorful and amusing. There are architectural details and metallic blazers that gave the Stella McCartney brand a whole great new feeling.

Peter Copping wanted to make the Nina Ricci pre-fall very lady-like, but not in a repressed way. His pre-fall collection has a soft, lovely look that makes Nina Ricci stand out.  Although it may seem undone, the designer intentionally made it look very pretty looking with a nice modern touch without going overboard. 

“It seems like I'm looking in a kaleidoscope” Prabal Gurung made an amazing pre-fall collection, filled with jewel details and stunning prints that make the collection somewhat peculiar but enjoyable and fascinating.  N°21 creative director Alessandro Dell'Acqua made his collection thinking more about young women. Although it has many dark pieces, it still has a youthful feeling and it has the loveliest lace details.  There is nothing boyish or easygoing in Temperly London’s collection. Alice Temperley, inspired by the 19th century, made a feminine, wearable and beautiful collection where many particular things give a certain elegance and luxurious look to the pieces.
