A New Season is Upon Us

Dec 3, 2010

Pre-Fall 2011 collections have arrived at the home of style.com, but too few of them to leave a full, lasting impact. Pre-Fall collections are referred to as a sneak peek, a prelude to the upcoming Fall collections. I believe it is the beginning of something greater, yet still full of beauty. 
Through the few collections I was able to view, I discovered a color scheme intact with all of the designer's visions. These colors were mostly neutrals (camel, black, cream), along with basic, typical Fall shades of blue and red. Some hues, though still part of the cliche color palette, were more refreshing, such as mustard yellows, royal purples, and turquoise. Dresses were a part of many collections, though that category can be broken down into other trends-A-line dresses, belted dresses, and elegant gowns. Pringle of Scotland's collection was one of the best, with its Celine-like tailoring and style, mixed with a perfect color scheme. 
The few collections of which I am basing my trend report on had perfect Fall ensembles, but unfortunately did not evoke any awe, or true love. The made the "wish-I-could-buy" list of mine, but did not fall under "I want, I want, I want!". However, like I have said before, Pre-Fall collections are the beginnings of something much greater, so my expectations of the main Fall 2011 are much higher. If Pre-Fall is good, then Fall must be very good!
