A true celebration of joy and life through color. For the Pre-Fall 22 season, the designers have turned to rainbow hues. 

Transition seasons are often a mix of eclectic pieces, which can be jarring because they just don’t seem to fit together. We see flowing dresses in light silk next to wool coats and knitwear and mini skirts. Transition collections (Resort and Pre-Fall) are always a fusion of the best of two worlds.

For Pre-Fall 22, the designers have decided to capture all the magnificent shades of the rainbow in dream garments. It’s true kaleidoscopic cosmos that revamps our wardrobe with optimism.

Red

Love and passion, danger and anger. Red is a color with lots duality and intensity. It brings to mind the power of fire, but it also reminds us of great love stories. It’s drama, it’s energy, it’s life. It’s a hue that cannot be ignored. It provokes emotion. Red is crowned as one of the most trendy colors for Pre-Fall 22. Dare to wear an outfit in this shade.
