It's nice to see designers taking pre-fall more seriously rather than just churn out watered down filler. I think I read somewhere that resort and pre-fall sells really well so maybe that's where the enthusiasm is coming from for designers.
So far I haven't seen any knock-out collections but each one has had some seriously covetable pieces. Thakoon is doing an oddly chic looking pant that's quite boxy at the top. Unlikely to be flattering on most women but beautiful all the same.

Pringle of Scotland have the best coats hands-down. Donna Karan did a gorgeous military skirt suit that will just melt around your figure. It's such a non-aggressive look for military inspired clothes. Jason Wu has some beautifully molded jackets, belted and paired with pleated skirts and wooly tights. It's good to see him do something youthful and more playful while maintaing that Fifth Avenue tag he has. Above: Donna Karan. Below: Jason Wu

Currently I'm completely freaky for Celine and Phoebe Philo can do no wrong. Her work is so refreshing and sweet without being frothy. Crisp crease-front high-waisted pants make a return this time in olive and there was also a trim pair of red pants cut just on the ankle. Coats were strong, a sporty black japara and a long black one in what looked like felted wool was trimmed in licorice leather.
