Set at London's Heron Tower, the Preen Fall '13 collection was as much a reflection of its setting as it was a product of designers Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi's penchant for architecturally clean lines. Graphic baby-doll dresses — fixed with pronounced pointed collars — came down the runway in navy blues, blacks, whites, and reds. Tailored suits and angular jackets, which were punched up with asymmetrical zippers, provided a menswear-inspired slant, while the most feminine fare of the lot was saved for last. Near the show's finale, we were treated to all-out glittering floral embellishments adorning sheer blouses, skirt folds, and sportier sweatshirt silhouettes. Think of Preen's Fall '13 lineup as one that supplies the modernist with a colorfully cool wardrobe. See it all here — and now.
