A major return to the office and in-person events, has meant a renewed interest in tailored clothing, particularly suitings. Pre-fall collections drop from June to August and traverse two seasons. Therefore, colors and fabrics can be summer-like or fall-like. For pre-fall 23, styles range from classic to innovative; here are the most significant.
Alberta Ferretti offered a romantic take to the wide leg pant suit, rendering it in purple velvet shown over a grey silk blouse.
From Marco De Vincenzo for Etro, a wine-colored three-piece velvet suit with a wide lapel DB jacket, a vest and bell bottom pants had a seventies appeal.
Maximilian Davis showed a total look with a masculine feel for Ferragamo: a sky blue shirt, two button blazer and trench coat with a navy tie.
From Luke and Lucie Meier for Jil Sander, a blue suit that included a vest with a belt detail and a silver buckle over narrow pants.
