It is Pre-Fall season and getting into the Pre-Autumn spirit are two of our favourite designers Stella McCartney and Matthew Williamson. Instead of her usual garden setting, McCartney (above, left) chose to bring her collection indoors showing oversized cocoon sweaters, geometric prints, stylish capes, and rich wine-coloured fabrics and slouchy knits.

While Williamson took inspiration from nature for his Pre-Fall collection (above, right) with feather and leaf prints. A mix of different fabrics, the eclectic collection featured layers of leather trimmed pieces, sequins, silk dresses, feathers and knits.
