Designers often pull inspiration from far-flung, exotic destinations, but Timo Weiland, Alan Eckstein, and Donna Kang kept things local for Pre-Fall. Frequent road trips to Florida to visit Weiland’s family inspired the collection’s saturated palette, sporty details, and pared-back silhouettes. “The modern, mid-century interiors of Florida influenced the more streamlined feeling,” Kang explained. Those clean lines were juxtaposed against rich textures like knife pleats, sheer panels, and thick jacquards. A blue-and-silver dot print looked vaguely feline but was actually an abstract interpretation of raindrops on a windshield. The trio describe their clothes as “preppy with a twist,” adding striped piping to T-shirt dresses and incorporating lots of ribbed, skintight separates in a stretchy rayon-nylon-Lycra blend. “Sexy” is relatively new territory for them, and the body-con-averse might pass over those pieces. For girls who prefer the label’s breezier, girlier side, there were flippy tuxedo dresses and minis to spare.
