Best of Pre-Fall 2011

We had been waiting on Prada/Miu Miu to put our favorite Pre-Fall list together and it seems that amidst a jam packed fashion calender, it honestly isn't going to happen. Fall 2011 has already been going strong over the past few days. That being said, there were still hundreds of must-have looks from all of our favorites, the usual suspects, of course. From sci-fi to minimalism to all out cool, there's plenty for everyone, including 360+ stand-out looks.

Adding a beautifully crafted air of cool girl nonchalance to her confident repertoire of slick luxury made Pre-Fall another hit for Pheobe Philo's expanding vision at Celine. Standouts included fragmented patchwork outerwear, subdued metallics and a re-working of Philo's now iconic color blocked sportswear.


A palette of neutrals injected with shots of lilac made for a clever way to highlight and even lighten up Ricardo Tisci's many signatures at Givenchy. Pre-Fall also included a fresh assortment of sporty references from riding pants to the perfect baseball jacket, making it one of his best outings as of late.


Explosive wallpaper prints mixed with an 80's vibe and the return of Nicholas Ghesquiere's infamous dog print sweater made Balenciaga heavy on wearable separates full of personality.


Relaxed separates in a moody palette with a restrained 40's and somewhat mannish vintage appeal were a smart addition to the retro dialogue Marco Zanini has flourished on at Rochas.


The clean focus of Thakoon's fuss-free Pre-Fall outing only further proves why it's quite possibly our favorite New York label to come out in the past decade, and our favorite label for Pre-Fall stateside.
