New York: For her first Pre-Fall collection, Lisa Perry stuck with the graphic designs and 60s influences for which her label has become known. This time, traffic signals provided fodder for the patterns. Large arrows were emblazoned onto sheath dresses, form-fitting sweaters, and a sporty raglan-sleeved top. The pieces were accessible and uncomplicated with classic items, such as A-line skirts, empire-waist dresses, and stretch leggings making up a large portion of the collection. But elegant details set certain items apart. A roll-neck collar elevated a simple crepe top, inverted pleats added volume to the back of a sleeveless shell, and a self-fabric drawstring tie made a plain, collarless jacket into an object of desire. This was an offering filled with charming separates and breezy basics, which will give Perry’s followers plenty of items to covet.–Joanna Manganaro
