Proof Positive That Pre-Fall Collections Are Important — & Shoppable

We just love a good pre-fall collection. These mini ranges often give designers a chance to deviate from their fall and spring traditions, and the end results are clothes that are both imaginative and endlessly wearable.
Erdem is a perfect example of this trend. In the case of its delectable 2014 pre-fall collection, some of the brand’s signature themes are present, but in newer, more experimental forms. The floral patterns, delicate lace details, and subtle embellishments we’ve come to expect from this style powerhouse are here. But, the moody color palette and high-shine fabrics make for an interesting change from past looks. We’re certain the label’s fans, including Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton, will certainly appreciate the difference. And, we wholeheartedly agree. The floor-length jacquard gowns with the cute-but-practical pocket details are simply gorgeous. Click through to see the entire collection and let us know in the comments the dress you covet for your next black-tie event — if only in your dreams.
