Pre-fall collections predict a neat season

Fall 2008 fashion shows have already begun and in this crazy and wonderful spin from rtw to resort to couture and again to ready-to-wear I took a peak at the pre-fall shows that ended just two weeks ago. If these pre-shows are meant to predict next season's trends, well, I have to say it looks like we'll have a smart sophisticated fall season, with structured silhouettes and muted metallic shades or rich, autumn floral hues. 'Seasonless clothes' says Michael Kors, great next vintage buys, I'd add.

Here is a list of my pre-fall faves.

I love these cropped jackets at Akris and the cream beige - soft gray color combination.

Structured jackets and square toe platform booties at Balenciaga. Glad to see skinny jeans are still in favor.

Polished, sharp silhouettes at Proenza Schouler. Bracelet sleeves, shrunken jackets give an elegant layered look.
