Maxi dress, swimming costume, espadrilles. Smart fashionistas are already fully kitted out for the summer. If you’re looking for the latest trends, you’ll find them in the new pre-fall collections. They’ve just arrived in the shops and give us an insight into what we’re going to be wearing next season.
Down the middle
Without belts, everything would grind to a halt in the pre-fall collections. Conjure up a beautiful waistline with thin belts by Louis Vuitton – also great over a jumper. Wrap and shirt dresses create a sleek silhouette at Etro and Bottega Veneta, while Brunello Cucinelli and Miu Miu simply integrate belts straight into their outfits.
Brand names prominently placed on clothes and accessories are still a big trend this autumn. Valentino has reinterpreted the style with oversized “VLTN” letters on coats and capes. Very eye-catching.
Show us your legs. Skirts are shrinking: miniskirts are back. Whether in leather as at Louis Vuitton or looking like leopard print à la Valentino. Or go for hot pants and fishnets tights as at Miu Miu.
