The many checks and plaids for pre-fall 2020 have evolved into an homage to the quaintness of the English countryside and beyond. Balenciaga took a literal approach to the trend and presented a perfectly patterned overcoat, chic enough to wear amid the London fog. Gucci and Dior both adopted the essence of the trend and showed outerwear fit for any misty rain or rolling hill.

For spring 2020, the revival of the ‘60s reigned. We therefore expected a continuation of the mini movement for pre-fall 2020. Our forecast was met in the forms of abbreviated hems at Dior, Gucci, and even at Balenciaga. Most surprisingly, Proenza Schouler, a brand which previously favored a more demure direction, embraced the barely there with this retro, white mini.

Outstanding outerwear made its mark at the pre-fall collections, standing in defiance toward the fact that the season’s wares hits stores during the heat of midsummer. Daniel Lee at Bottega Veneta sealed his title yet again as the bonny prince of shearling stunners. This quilted number is no exception. Chanel and Gucci took the trend to an elegant, elevated height with their own interpretations.
