Minimalism

Minimalism’s omnipresence abounds. Sharply constructed sartorial ensembles and a neutral, sometimes monochromatic palette of purist white, grays and black resonated as a key choice, as seen from Thom Browne, R13’s Chris Leba, Nili Lotan, Norma Kamali and more. The ubiquitous white shirt is also a key layer in the season. It can be seen as the main message at times, from Carolina Herrera to the MM6.

Summer suits are also being given a summer twist with streamlined blazers that can be paired with shorts of the short-short to Bermuda height.

Denim 2.0

Canadian tuxedos have been reinvented pre-fall to include a multitude of washes and shades (as seen from Ulla Johnson and Chanel), painterly finishes (from R13) and utility accents (à la 3.1 Phillip Lim). Styles ranged from the more DIY-inspired from Dsquared2 and RtA to the streamlined and sharp from Chloé, Victoria Beckham and Givenchy. After a spring season full of ’90s boxy cuts and baggy silhouettes, pre-fall’s denim styles offer a more classic, straight silhouette to carry through fall.

Slip Dressing

Pre-fall is a time of nostalgia for the Nineties, with the slipdress resurfacing as a popular trend. Designers are offering the look for day, à la lingerie-inspired styles with lace details and short hemlines, as well as for evening in elongated silhouettes with dressier finishes. Slip dressing has been one of fashion’s most interesting trends.

Polos

Preppy looks are making a steady and slow return. This time, the polo shirt is the most popular preppy item. The new take includes elongated styles, like Proenza Schouler’s column dress version; knit layers, from Chloé and Etro; the quintessential sporty polo, like Adeam’s white tennis style, and classic polo silhouettes with luxe oversized buttons.

Other preppy messages from pre-fall include pastel colors and plaid patterns — both perfect to provide the finishing touch to this American lifestyle trend.
