fall collections, new york: preen
by Jeremy Danté
with noticeable influence from american quilting, the FW11 presented by preen is creatively inspired. the technology that is used to create clothes & prints in today’s industry allows an insane amount of ideas & concepts to become one. im very familiar with the prints that are seen here because they mirror that of my grandmothers quilts. i love the combined creativity of something with a rich tradition, like quilting, to that of something more modern & still sophisticated. i’ve been loving the preen collections for a couple of seasons now & this collection is a genuinely fresh take on what has been presented as trend for the FW11 season. very sleek designs & strong lines were matched perfectly to bold tones & thoughtful details, a great collection.
