Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Pre-Fall 2017

I’m a huge fan of pairing up contrasting styles. When people pair two styles that never seem like they’d work together, and they somehow work really well, it’s without a doubt, more interesting than the two styles worn on their own.Thornton Bregazzi’s pre-fall collection for Preen took bohemian, girly, and gothic staples and mixed them all into one collection, and the result was amazing. The long, draping dresses flowed nicely over heavy black platform boots that we’re far more used to seeing in pictures of Goths getting ready to go to the famous Batcave music club.

The dresses themselves ranged from bold black and white patterns, to beautiful micro-floral prints. The use of extremely light fabrics with ridiculously heavy boots is one of my favorite parts of this collection! Amidst the beautiful floral dresses, the brand also had full-on goth looks, featuring black lace maxi dresses, and angular suits.

The color scheme is bright and bold. Something we aren’t seeing a lot of this year, as most designers opt for more muted colors, not quite pastel, but not bright either. It’s a daring choice to make, especially with the already unconventional choices Preen has chosen for other parts of the collection. I also got a bit of an eighties vibe from some of the dresses. There were some made of velvet, with asymmetrical hemlines, or were covered in sequins. Preen by Thornton Bregazzi’s Pre-Fall collection is spectacular because this is a collection that has  a lot of concepts that seem to be extremely conflicting, and they work together really well.
