Resort and pre-fall collections have much more fluid show schedules than the rigid, month-long global jaunt that marks spring and fall debuts, which can make it a little bit difficult to analyze the offerings together, as distinct parts of a common unit, to find the themes and trends. Because Pre-Fall 2017 more or less paused for two weeks for the holidays, though, now’s the perfect time to drop in and see where we’re at for the upcoming season so far.
Several big accessories brands haven’t revealed their collections yet (most notably, Valentino, Givenchy and Louis Vuitton–others, like Prada, Céline and Chloé, often don’t release pre-collection lookbooks for the public), but enough bag-producing brands big and small have debuted Pre-Fall 2017 that this mid-season stopping point seemed like a good time to peruse the highlights. When the rest of the big brands release images, we’ll have them all here for you as well.
