Long summer nights and high summer jinks in Pre Fall.

Is this dawn or dusk? Are they just leaving for a party, buzzing with anticipation or are they heading home, hazy with hedonism? It’s one of those summer nights where the sun barely sets, that much is clear. Follow their style lead, and pursue them to the party…
The Pre Fall collection is designed with evenings like this in mind, inspired by Bright Young Things
and late-night capers and cocktails in the woods. Timeless silk chiffon shapes are rendered new in raspberry and lush emerald – inspired by the flora of a forest. Add the Glitter Stone necklace
to highlight a neckline as your only accessory – its shimmering gems mesmerise the eye. The hand-painted snowdrop print narrates an all-night party – dew drops are depicted between finest spider webs – dawn has arrived and barefoot Bohemians run home through the woods. For a more casual affair, add a hint of the print with the silk blouse
over jeans or tailoring.
These timeless looks are what Pre Fall
is all about – a trans-seasonal collection to wear now and later, time and time again. True hero pieces beyond the seasonal trends. With Glorious Goodwood, Wilderness and Garsington Opera still to come, the night, and summer, are young.
