It somehow seems crazy to be looking at the pre-fall collections now in the midst of winter but if these collections are any indication of what will be unveiled next month at Lincoln Center, then ladies, save your pennies because there is a lot of lovely coming down the pike. Here are a few of my favorites. Nina Ricci’s wearable lady like collection is irresistible. Love the shoes and bags as well.
These big floppy hats were everywhere.
How FABULOUS is this color combination.

The always lovely Lanvin
sporting some of the new longer lengths.
and fabulous mix of color and texture (and yes, animal prints and fur are here to stay)
But for me the surprise star of the season was the Bally line rejuvenated by the new design team of Michael Herz and Graeme Fidler. I loved just about every single piece in this effortless chic collection

So even though we’re a bit ahead of ourselves, the fashion forecast is set – classic is here to stay (at least for one more season)!

So many pretty pieces here, but I especially adore the last one! Such an unusual color (suede perhaps?) on the pocketing and other details — wonderful. I also really enjoy the color combination in the third image — warm, yet cheerful, somehow… thank you for sharing these…
wishing you a lovely weekend ahead, xoxo
Hi Sarah – Isn’t that coat FABULOUS??!! I have a feeling it’s suede since Bally has such a heritage with leather and they incorporated it into many of the pieces. Wishing you a great weekend as well.
Nothing beats the classics. I’m actually excited about these collections.
Hi Mary – Couldn’t agree more – I’m loving all these modern spins on the classics.
Those pieces are beautiful:) The date-night dress is simply adorable and so chic! Have a fantastic weekend, darling
Hi Diana – I’m just loving all these beautiful collections!! The date night dress reminds me of the Lanvin one I featured in my Road Trip post – both gorgeous.
I need to become a better fashionista…
my wardrobe is so lacking…
but these fashions are stunning..
a good place for me to start..
have a great Saturday..
Hi Maureen – Yes and the good news is that there will be trickle down so that by the time fall comes, more affordable collections will be featuring looks like these.
Wow, we do have some great things in store. I love fashion. thanks for sharing. My first time here.
Hi Mona – Welcome! It’s not always fashion here – but you got a nice eyeful today! Yes, I love that the trend of classic elegance seems to be continuing. Will stop by and visit in a bit.
Red & turquoise. YES! As a jewelry designer I often think “Mother Nature doesn’t make mistakes.” When you are creating jewelry you put piles of stones around and no matter how you combine them it always seems right. So red coral & natural turquoise is beautiful, just like the outfit. And, I love the necklace in the pic. xx’s to you Q.
Hi Marsha – Yes, love this combination for fashion, interiors and jewelry as well. So glad you have finally put up your beautiful collection. I have to do some more perusing :-)
I love Nina Ricci’s collection! The floppy hats and pleated skirts and pretty dresses are perfect!
Hi Elizabeth – Isn’t Nina Ricci gorgeous?! I could own every piece!
Lovely!! I just adore the first look, and the last! And, I have been loving
turquoise + red so much lately. A great early peek! Thank you. ; )
Hi Barbara – Yes, that last coat is just fabulous – the color and texture combination is wonderful!
Chic outfits!! They inspire me to get out of my sweats!!
LLY – Too funny – Yes, that would be a start!
I’m loving that cream coat. I love anything cream or winter white.
Hi Ann – Me too – so elegant and classic. Obvious reference to Chanel but still love it!!
I do love the colors of that sort of dusted turquoise and berry red and the skirt is very cardi. I especially love the longer lengths. great selections.
LA – I’m definitely going to add something longer to my wardrobe this year – just love that look. And although I’m not normally into much color, I’m going to make in effort in that regard as well – that turquoise/red combo is right up my alley – unexpected and little “off”.
Oh, I’ll take it all! Except for the long black skirt. I got rid of mine last year and don’t need to replace it.
Hi Loretta – If I could, I’d take it all as well! Thanks for stopping by.
Gorgeous round up! I’m especially smitten with the first look and i see my name on that bag! Hope you’re having a fab weekend! XX
Hi Stacey – Thank you! That first one is classic and would go with everything! Not to mention you could break up the pieces for mix and match. I’ve loving that bag as well!
love the teal and red combination–so gorgeous and the first photo with all those tiny buttons-I’m in love!
HH – isn’t that combination the best – so chic and so French! Of course the shoes make it!
I LOVE the three you picked out- especially the Lanvin. Elbaz always has a way of making luxe look so chic without being gaudy.
HH – Thank you! Totally agree about Lanvin – why I love it!!
Tha second outfit from top is to die for. I could take them all, if I could
BV – I love that one as well – a lovely updated homage to Chanel.
Oh, my! I see we are both looking forward to Fall Fashion Week. And it seems we both love Nina Ricci and Lanvin. I knew I liked your style!
Hi Yolanda – Yes, we both understandably liked these collections – I thought they were two of the best.
Gorgeous choices! I love the Nina Ricci collection, my friend Peter Copping has done a wonderful job there and it’s selling really well xx
Thank you! Oh he is doing a really marvelous job and I’m glad to hear the line is doing well – it certainly deserves to!
I absolutely adore the aqua and raspberry combo!! Gorgeous.
And speaking of things ever so stylish, I’ve passed along the stylish blogger award to you!
Hi Anita – I love that combo – I want to do it in my bedroom. And thank you so much for thinking of me for the award!!
Fantastic picks! Please check out I Dream Of tomorrow — I’m passing along the Stylish Blogger Award to you. Looks like I’m not the first, of course! ;-)
