3.1 Phillip Lim

Someone's been reading his old comic books. Phillip Lim showed 38 looks packed with superhero-inspired flourishes, from cape silhouettes to baseball jackets to blown-up comic fonts. The results looked thoroughly chic, not cartoonish.

Honor

For her first-ever pre-fall showing, Honor's Giovanna Randall stuck to ultra-feminine styles. In addition to a playful equestrian print, there were florals, punchy pinks and a breathtaking jellyfish-style skirt in dove gray.

Boy. by Band of Outsiders

In a collection inspired by Diane Keaton's character in Woody Allen's Manhattan, designer Scott Sternberg layered plaid coats and schoolboy blazers atop striped pants and asymmetrically-pleated skirts. Never has librarian-style dressing looked so effortlessly cool.

Proenza Schouler

Proenza Schouler's Jack McCullough and Lazaro Hernandez rarely put a foot wrong, but our love for the duo rose to new heights after glimpsing their pre-fall offerings. Having recently returned from a hike through the Himalayas, Jack and Laz's parka-style outerwear and bungee-cord-cinched dresses carried that same sporty flair. Plus, the Proenza boys nodded to their early collections by reviving the bustier-style tops that earned them legions of fans.

Theyskens' Theory

Luxe separates are what Theory's all about and Olivier Theyskens' pre-fall lineup for the brand contained plenty of pieces prime for the mixing and matching. There were many of the designer's famous abstract prints, plus wear-anywhere combat boots and a handful of looks slicked with beautiful beadwork. In Theyskens' capable hands, even gossamer leggings dotted with metallic beads seem wearable.
