It’s a truth, universally acknowledged, that Pre-Fall investments reap long-term rewards. You may have to cocoon that flutter-in-the-breeze Rochas dress with a coat at first, but when those “casual Hamptons social” invitations roll in (which tend not to be that oh-so-casual), you can emerge from the chrysalis in said flirty look, and bask in the sunshine. Pre-Fall is no longer a sartorial bridge between seasons—these cooler, more intimate presentations offer an exclusive insight into each designer or brand’s world. No distractions—just the good and wearable stuff: Read Giambattista Valli’s modern cocktail femininity; Kym Ellery’s thoughtful, and ice-crisp take on the classics; Blazé Milano’s continuous reinvention of the heritage blazer.

Pre-Fall shows off a designer’s personal best, if you will—and who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? Their pieces work with your wardrobe, making them relevant from here to eternity ( . . . or at the very least until spring of next year). Here are 13 of the best finds from the new Pre-Fall collections that are sending my (and hopefully your) spirits soaring.
