THE in-be­tween sea­son of Pre-Fall al­lows de­signer la­bels the chance to ex­plore. While some took the op­por­tu­nity to make a po­lit­i­cal state­ment, oth­ers used their de­signs to il­lus­trate their cre­ative vi­sion.

Here’s a look at five no­table Pre-Fall 2017 menswear col­lec­tions that made a state­ment.

Draw­ing at­ten­tion

The place: an an­cient palazzo. The time: an in­de­ter­mi­nate fu­ture. The col­lec­tion: a well-cu­rated clash be­tween dystopia and hope, as pre­sented by famed Moschino de­signer Jeremy Scott.

For Pre-Fall, the la­bel drew in­spi­ra­tion from mil­i­tary uni­forms. Olive cot­ton drill and para­chute silk are is­sued as jump­suits, to­gether with elon­gated MA1s, field jack­ets and cam­ou­flaged com­bat sep­a­rates.

There are el­e­ments of hard and soft at play too. Con­sider the Moschino-clas­sic black leather biker pieces. These now come fash­ioned with gold pan­els on the back of the flo­ral jacquard ma­te­rial.

“We have to fight – for rights, for beauty, for ev­ery­thing we be­lieve in be­cause it’s be­ing ripped away from us. And try­ing to find any bits of beauty that you can and al­most mak­ing em­blems and totems of them,” said Scott.
