Pre-Fall Collections Are Here: What Exactly Is Pre-Fall?

Michael Kors might be right—the name “Pre-Fall” isn’t exactly appealing. But we’re happy it’s here. Holding us over from the drying-up well of Spring clothes, yet before Fall/Winter has hit stores, Pre-Fall is designed to carry you into the new season, and designers create wearable clothes that are much more commercial than the ready-to-wear collections. Similar to the recent adoption of Resort as a prominent and accepted season of fashion, Pre-Fall is becoming larger every year, with more designers releasing a line in this brief in-between period. Runway shows and lookbooks have been popping up online in the last few weeks, and after the jump we’ve compiled our favorite looks from those released thus far.

1. Jason Wu 2. Michael Kors 3-5. Oscar de la Renta 6-7. Pringle of Scotland 8-10. Rag & Bone
