“I wanted this collection to project confidence and power and inner strength — as a woman, especially after the election, I was feeling defeated — so this is all about rising above” said Michelle Smith at her pre-fall collection. Fashionwise, she won. Every look is a winner, as the formula is consistent with what is resonating with women who are into fashion.

The ultimate power item: a men’s shirt, reworked in feminine ways — cropped at the front, maxi at the back. “A lot of the shirting fabrics I sourced from a traditional men’s shirting company in Italy,” Smith said. But there was also a nod to comfort dressing via track pants paired with cashmere knits and wide-leg trousers, which she recut from her archives.

But the Milly girl is social, no matter the states of politics, so for pre-fall she won’t be trying too hard. She’ll show up in a cool black lace pleated midi skirt and an oversize sweater. More power to that!
