Best of the best of Pre-Fall 2014

Best of Pre-Fall 2014

New York Fashion Week for Fall 2014 is in full swing but I’m still processing the international Pre-Fall looks. It’s been an interesting set of collections, knit-wise. Where the past few seasons have relied mainly on ultra-basic sweaters, creatively worn, Pre-Fall 2014 has been full of all kinds of bright and bold sweaters, under and over everything, such as the retro stripes and varsity pullovers at Gucci and Jonathan Saunders.

They’re fun and all, but my very favorite sweater look is the Chloé ensemble above — one of only two knits in an amazing collection. A killer Moroccan-ish printed (I think) crewneck over a tie-neck blouse (I guess), spotted waterfall-ruffle skirt and the only thigh-high boots I’ve ever wanted. (The only thigh-high boots I’ve ever seen that have not a single whiff of street-walker about them.)

As a yarny collection, though, I think my favorite is Thakoon Addition:

The collection is packed full of swants, soopa scarves, fringed skirts, crop tops, exposed floats — all of it highly covetable and super inspiring. So Thakoon gets both best and worst this time around.

I can’t tell exactly what’s going on with the pullover below, but I can tell you that I want it

  2. I love that ensemble from Chloe in the first picture. Also, the sweater in the Thakoon Addition collection with what looks like leather panels is also a favorite!

  3. That last sweater, I love it too. At first I thought it was the other side of colorwork, but up close it looks like cables on a marled self striping yarn. Of course, the horizontal cables on the body line up perfectly with the dark stripes…
