What is “Pre-Fall,” anyway? Another way of describing the season might be: “Summer.” With this collection, Carin Rodebjer fully embraced summery-ness, drawing on memories of her childhood in Sweden and elaborating them via clothes light enough to wear on the hottest day. Rodebjer’s seersucker tailoring was a case in point, washed-out blue or pink stripe done up into a little cinched-waist romper, or a pair of signature Rodebjer wide-leg culottes. The latter, paired with a button-down or a double-breasted jacket, looked at once urbane and effortless. The Swedes really do have a knack for that. Elsewhere, the story was print, with a graphic, Marimekko-esque jacquard and Liberty-style abstract floral establishing the ’70s-era childhood theme without hammering it too hard. Another print, squiggly lines on diaphanous silk, made its way into the collection’s sexiest pieces, fluttery little spaghetti-strap tanks and dresses and a slim, crinkly skirt in a shape adapted from the Rodebjer collection for Spring. They made you long for Indian summer. Or, to put that another way, Indian Pre-Fall.
