Pre-Fall is all about the feminine details

It can be uninspiring to look at the debut of the pre-fall 2011 collections while it's freezing and snowy outside.  The thought of doing it all over again with new coats and sweaters and layers is pretty daunting.  But the current outpourings from various designers is making the thought bearable--exciting, even!!  There are some absolutely amazing pieces taking hold in New York right now and some definite trends are emerging.  We especially love the femininity of the looks--so many designers are going for gorgeous ruffles, feathers, bows, and shapely silhouettes.  And, of course, there's plenty of pink, cream, red, and other wonderfully fun colors.  What an excellent antithesis to minimalism (though, of course, we love that too!!)

Below are some current favorite looks from designers like Nina Ricci, Lanvin, Oscar de la Renta, and Valentino.  The billowy fabric is just gorgeous and we love getting swept up in the lovely details.

Pre-fall will be a chance to show off some luscious ensembles and we cannot wait!  For now, though, it's time to keep donning snow boots and plenty of cashmere...
