Let's start with COLOR. What should we look for this Fall? Color is very rich and saturated. Think Evergreens, Sea Blues and Wines... the palettes are truly exquisite! Lauren Perez Think your favorite bottle of burgundy! Linda Mitchell When in doubt, go blue! This has become a family motto:) evergreens, haunting sea blues & fine wines "Pre-collections are the fashion industry's latest obsession, almost surpassing runway collections in importance and a statement to what a brand is about. It started and exploded with Resort." -- Lauren Are leggings still in? What kind of leg or waistline is in for pants? We all have leggings in our closet. They're comfortable and versatile... the trick is making them look fresh & sophisticated. Make 'em leather or suede! Anything goes for pants... slim, wide, cropped, whatever! What about "ladylike"? We're seeing both ends of the spectrum... super ladylike details AND lots of menswearinspired... a juxtaposition of feminine vs. masculine. Any `must have' trends in Outerwear?

Angela Pieretti Mixing very contemporary styling with designer sophistication and fabric.

"Sarah's brilliant-- I loved her last collection... She worked with Lee for so long so she knows what to do. She's not Lee, but I think he'd be happy with her doing it. She learnt from him."
