REPRISING THE HITS
New York: ­Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez used Pre-Fall to revisit some of the elements they introduced in previous seasons. Echos of the painted jeans that the duo put out for F/W 10 were felt in the playful printed pants that appeared throughout the collection. Cutaway jackets and coats from last season also made an appearance, as did the compelling photo prints that the designers have been experimenting with recently. This time around, the prints were inspired by a trip McCollough and Hernandez took to Fiji. The cerulean blues and jungle greens evoked the lush tropical setting, while golden hues may have been drawn from an island sunset. Bias-cut skirts, color blocked sweaters, and A-line dresses were among the simple yet appealing items that filled out the collection. It wasn’t the label’s most directional offering, but that was the point. It provided its followers with everyday items to supplement the more groundbreaking pieces from the Spring and Fall seasons.–Joanna Manganaro
