By now, you probably know that pre-fall 2011 collections have been taking place in various locations for the past few weeks. Last week, Rag & Bone showed an effortlessly cool collection of separates in New York City. In the past few days, heavyweights such as Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg have presented pre-fall collections overflowing with bright colors and, in the case of Oscar de la Renta, similarly-vivid headscarves. And, of course, on Tuesday in Paris, Chanel showed its Byzantine-inspired collection to an adoring audience that included Inès de la Fressange, Diane Kruger, and Clémence Poésy. As always, you can explore the complete collections at Style.com—a sufficient distraction for a Friday afternoon!
