Pre-Fall 2013? Huh?
Yes, lovelies, somehow within the last couple of years, the fashion world gave birth to another seasonal collection, because spring/summer, fall/winter, resort/cruise, and couture apparently were not enough.
And why is that? Well, it’s because we’re impatient, really. We can’t wait the long six months between spring collections and fall collections for something new to covet. And so pre-fall was born.
Look, I’m not complaining. Even if I can’t buy an sixteenth of what I peruse online daily, all these collections are still inspiring. I feel like fashion has finally become an anything-goes world. Sure, there are identifiable trends. But nothing is ever totally out-of-style anymore. It’s just labeled “vintage,” or excused/accepted under the guise of eccentricity. I like that.
I also like pre-fall 2013 by Ports 1961, with its delicious rich textures and unexpected play between jewel tones and nude/blush. All images via style.com.
We may be in fall 2012 in the northern hemisphere, but this future collection is so now. It’s kind of non-V in a way, and quirky. Demure femme fatale. I’m looking for opera-length leather gloves, stat.
