Pre-Fall is supposed to be a “buy now, wear now” season of transitional clothes that arrive in stores around June. I don’t know about you, but I’m not buying any fall clothes in June. Summer is just getting started at that time, and the sandals are in full force.
I understand that designer’s want to continue to have new product on the floor all the time, but I don’t understand why they produce a collection with fur and wool coats to hit the stores in June?
As I have been looking through the Pre-Fall 2012 collections, I have been shocked by how many of them are not “buy now, wear now” but are more “buy now, wear me in 4 months.” Designers presented fur coats and hats as well as wool coats and suiting and leather gloves and legwear. Who is wearing this in June/July?
I was very pleased when I reviewed Scott Sternberg’s collection for Band of Outsiders. The pieces were actually transitional and could be worn as a pre-cursor to Fall. I could easily see myself in every look and I loved how he balanced Spring ideas with Fall staples. The looks felt fresh yet still able to be worn in the middle of summer for the girl who is always looking forward to the next season’s trends. I was very impressed by his ability to capture what this season really should be about.
Take a look at the collection below.
