I’ve talked about spring fashion and upcoming fall fashion these weeks, so what could I possibly miss? Well, pre-fall 2017 is something yet to explore. It’s beyond absurd that we live in a world of consumption in a pace that’s impossible to keep up with. But as a fashion person at heart, a part of me is grateful for the generous dose of clothes to admire. So here are some highlights of the pre-fall 2017 collections. They’re quite good, so I wouldn’t mind skipping summer and head straight to the early days of fall! (did I hear a yes?)
Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2017
I have a hate and love relation to Michael Kors. The brand constantly balances between a perfected classic style and boring. A lot of looks could be from any designer (almost) while other looks embraces interesting details, cuts, choice of fabric and styling – only in a sophisticated yet perfected style Kors could do. The pre-fall collection feels like a contemporary twist on the 1940s style with a long silhouette, simple details and a subtle enhancement of the female body.
The first of my top three picks is the insanely stylish office (?) dress. The wearable mermaid style feels both fun and innovative and I can see it grow in popularity. The second pick is mainly about the jacket/blazer that is so elegant yet bold and empowering. The lines and cuts are simple and well placed. The buttons creates a fun effect (even though I’m not too keen on the style of the buttons in specific, they look, cheap?). The third look has the perfect coat. The oversized style, arms and boxy feeling is so good. Also crushing on the shoes, so ugly and so chic! Full collection here.

Chloé Pre-Fall 2017
I do realize it might seem like I’m sponsored by Chloé as I bring up the fashion label up in every other post, but I’m not (crying here). However, the pre-fall collection was just way too charming to ignore. It feels like a collection for everyday work in the city and cozy weekends out in the countryside. Sheer fabrics and pale shades for the city and cozy materials for the country.
The first look is a gorgeous contrast of the “practical” turtleneck and the decorative style of the sheer fabric. A fun and interesting contrast that’s pretty wearable! The second look might be the prettiest coat I’ve seen in awhile. The collar is gorgeous, so is the statement of the sleeves (faux puh-lease) and the clean lines. I want to wear a baby pink beret to it and wander the streets of Paris. The last look is either a hit or miss to people, most likely. Love the heavy feeling of the fabrics and the high level of coziness. The print and the colors feels very fall-ish and the denim is just as genius as denim is! Full collection here.

Fausto Puglisi Pre-Fall 2017
I felt like we almost had an Elie Saab runway situation here, but some of the looks were too good to ignore. The collection feels overall quite “the tropics meets fall” which is not a combo one usually opt for. But it sort of works. The prints and colors are electric and rather wearable.
The first look is a situation of “I have no idea what’s happening but I’m here for it”. I mean, is that a layered cape? Is that a jacket of inception? Who on earth would think of pairing tropical prints with military vibes? Well not me, but I’m grateful cause’ it works perfectly. I don’t even know where a clothing piece end and the next one begins so let’s just say I need the whole look (cause I do). The second look might be the best wrap dress (or is it a jacket?) I’ve seen for quite some time. Genius to go for print on one side and neutral on the other. Definitely wearable and an embodiment of effortlessly chic. The third look is not that good though. I’m afraid it looks rather cheap which is ironic given the price. But I still love the idea of it, how chic to go for a long shirt and never ending otk boots? I’d do some changes (ofc), but love the principle behind! Full collection here.
