Get In Line:
Pre-Spring Is Here

As the days get longer, the lines do too—in soft, fluid draping; lean, Savile-esque suiting; cleverly stitched smocking. After the bracing cold that brought in the new year, cheers to the first welcome glimpses of pre-spring. From a profusion of fresh florals and stripes to sleek, body-hugging knits and supple, ankle-grazing dresses, follow The Line into a brand-new season.
Cut in an hourglass silhouette and made in Italian stretch twill, KHAITE’s blazer and trousers are stunning accent pieces when incorporated into other looks, evoking the classic elegance of Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy.
Worn together, they represent indefatigable chic: commanding yet alluring, polished and game-changing. After all, a Time's Up moment in the world calls for a strong suit—the elemental way to kick-start a new era.
From Marni to Proenza Schouler, from Loewe to CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC, the pre-spring collections were filled with inspiring, investment-worthy pieces. The 90s fervor continued with form-fitting knits at Gabriela Hearst.
Elongated tank dresses came out in rich wool-cashmere in soothing shades of oatmeal. Wear solo for slip-dress simplicity or add the matching tee underneath. Top off with Loewe’s contrast-stitched smoking duster for laid-back luxury.

Black and white—or neutrals in general—dominate the pre-spring spectrum, which means a focus on pattern rather than a reliance on color. At CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC, florals stripped of hue are both dynamic and pleasingly minimal.
Again, follow The Line to graphic accessories in clean shapes and familiar motifs rendered anew—Mark Cross’s fetching wicker bag, for example, offers a modern take on the iconic Jane Birkin basket.
Follow The Line still to strappy shoulders and bustier-style tops such as with Brock Collection’s modern take on Renaissance dress and Proenza Schouler’s white textured frock.
This season, playfulness is redirected to the details—the insouciance of a pointy, artful, Manolo Blahnik slingback heel, and the provocative power of a wide strap bisecting Rosetta Getty’s deep-V-back blouse.
