By Isabel Marant’s own admission, pre-fall is a commercial enterprise that shouldn’t require a big press presentation to-do. The philosophy was not to undersell the collection. The lineup was a very relaxed wardrobe full of terrific clothes designed with special attention to fabrics and comfort, like cozy wool-blanket coats and wrap skirts and bright, chunky alpaca cable-knit sweaters in bright colors. There were also wrap skirts and fluid short dresses she considers cocktail attire.

Marant uses pre-collections to experiment with color; here using rust, golden yellow, green and poppy red to energize her classic black-and-whites. Colorful dot and circle motifs inspired by Regina Jimenez, a Spanish artist Marant collects, were printed on shirtdresses and interpreted as sequin embroideries and eyelet embellishments.
