The hot button issue: To gaucho or not to gaucho.
The designer looked to his Spring 2014 collection for his first-ever Pre-Fall outing -- further exploring the notions of ease and nonchalance. But he also got unexpectedly playful, too, most notably in the form of zingy plaid.
Warm, inviting colors, silken jacquards and perhaps next year's biggest street-style must-have, right this way...

Leave it to Karl Lagerfeld to infuse all the decadence, luxury and over-the-top theatrics of the regular show season into the smaller, less-glitzy (until now) Pre-Fall season for Chanel. Set in the Grand Palais in Paris, models walked a circular runway bordered by two lavishly set long banquets piled high with fruits, flowers, candelabras and there was even a silver toy train that delivered decanters of liquor to guests (according to Style.com). In other words, it was fit for a king--or, in this case, a Raj.
I always love Jason Wu's pre fall and resort collections and feel they are a testament to how talented and versatile he is. The in-between seasons typically have more of a commercial focus than spring and fall, but Wu never sacrifices one bit of quality. He shows that he can do wearable options like pants, sweaters, blouses, jackets and flats just as well as he can do sparkly evening gowns, with the same attention to detail and ability to make every piece special and unique.
In the past year or so "Pre Fall" has become a real "season," a collection that is promoted and pitched to editors in addition to market editors for coverage. Granted "pre fall"--the deliveries that hits stores before fall (so like, in the summer? around June? it still confuses me)--obviously isn't as important or as hyped as the spring and fall collections, but it's still gaining traction. Case in point, Oscar de la Renta, who does everything in grand fashion, showed his pre fall collection on the runway yesterday at his usual space on 583 Park Ave. It was fitting that de la Renta returned to the Upper East Side to present this collection, because the clothes were tailor made for those posh ladies who lunch, his mainstay clientele.
