Regardless of what you call the in between collections, buying for your holiday or simply because you're a die hard fan they are hands down some of my favourite collections. For you history buffs they were originally named "Cruise" when they came about in the 20s to service wealthy clients who holidayed on cruise liners in winter months and were unable to find clothes suitable at the time. For me some pre-collections are almost as fabulous or just as fabulous as the main event. Oft designers use the opportunity as creative outlets, heavily trend led collections (cashing in on street trends/momentary trends) or simply as a change in direction. Anyway I AM a big fan of these lovely additions to the fashion calendar and embrace their twice yearly pop ups...
I hope you like what I selected....
