So it’s practically end of August and there is something in the air that smells to me like a return to a timetable .. if you’ve been lucky to catch a glimpse of the sea or stay in a city that’s empty of traffic jams .. it’s now time to get into reverse gear .
But it’s not all bad .. with the beginning of September it means that the shops are full with prefall .. collections . I actually love prefall because the pieces out there are watered down versions of designers show stoppers that are on hold for AW18, and that are put out a little later by the boutiques. So they’re great pieces which can be layered up later for different effects. Of course I will be going through each trend with my particular favourite designers week by week and throwing in some some ideas of how to wear them .
I guess one of my favourite Fall pieces has got to be the TRENCH, it’s great as a prefall piece lighter than all the puffas, faux furs & voluminous coats that are coming later on , but equally can be layered up later with capes and thick jumpers at a drop of a hat when it gets colder.
On the top of my tick list for trenches has got to be Eudon Choi’s version, it’s transparent enough to catch a glimpses of that hard worked summer tan but ample enough to wear over a thick jumper for later on . I am rather passionate this season about long length coats so Ganni who also has a white, almost ankle length , trench coat with popper buttons is a favourite, and could be worn as a dress later on .. for sure. Pre fall lusts have got to Erdem’s Flower trench and Creatures of Comfort Spotty Colourful trenches .
