Penelope Tree, preparing for liftoff! Sofia Sizzi, the perennially ’60s-referencing designer of Giulietta, took a space-age trip for Pre-Fall, one hefty part Courrèges with maybe a dash of the Jetsons. Print was paramount here, like the bold, thermal-bonded “hourglass” design that pulsed down the fronts of mod little frocks, or a pattern inspired by the innards of a vintage computer and printed on organza. Sizzi whipped the latter into dynamite flared trousers, among other pieces. Silhouettes skewed toward the vintage-y, tempered by a wonderfully weird palette—grape, rust, chartreuse, and turquoise all playing in unlikely harmony—and details like sporty, matte black hardware. Coolest of all were the “flowers from Mars,” as Sizzi dubbed a puffy metallic jacquard in emerald and gold. There was more idiosyncrasy in this collection than one typically finds in a Giulietta offering: Those Martian blooms, used on a jumpsuit with contrasting turquoise sleeves, were a stunning testament to it.
