10 Crosby Derek Lam Pre-Fall 2014 is introducing suede wrap skirts and an edged fringe to kick off the start of next fall. While paired with a crisp, draped poplin blouse and a sharp menswear style coat, the outfit ticks off several trends that are in the air for spring and fall.

Though it's a transitional collection, it comes together in a way that feels true to the diffusion brand's evolving message. While previewing the new collection, Elizabeth Giardina references minimalist Palm Springs architecture and silhouettes as one of the profound inspirations, also evident as texture in the form of tassels, and tapestry-like pencil skirts with shaggy pullovers.

She also states fabric development is a continued focus in each season.
