    10 days ago - By WWD

    “Welcome to lavender world,” Christian Siriano declared upon entering his atelier. The designer took the color to the extreme for pre-fall, injecting soft shades of lavender and lilac into his signature sculptural gowns and a wide range of sleek, daytime silhouettes.

    For pre-fall, 10 Crosby design director Shawn Reddy was thinking about the elements of dress you might see on a beach getaway - “colorful prints, bright colors, anything more fluid or relaxed that would indicate warmth” - and how to translate those vacation staples into everyday life.
    That process yielded a youthful collection of summer dresses, striped shirtdresses, printed pajama pants and loose, colorful suiting, such as a raw denim suit with culottes.
