Butterfly embroidered gowns at Valentino. Insect wings outlining the gowns at Honor. Carolina Herrera taps her Pre-Fall collection, “Bee Happy.” Elephants and dragons are drawn on to the pieces at Roberto Cavalli.

Ever since the Pre-Fall season began, designers have been looking out their windows for inspiration on their latest collections. Throughout the Pre-Fall collections, many designers demonstrated the importance of outerwear, with fur and feathered separates. While Reed Krakoff’s collection sure did seem to show off some of my favorite animal prints. Some designers seemed to opt more for flowers and insects, especially during last week’s Haute Couture Fashion Week. Carolina Herrera takes inspiration from the bumble bee, while at Valentino comes a segment filled with Butterfly embroidered gowns, in both the brand’s Haute Couture and Pre-Fall collection. While flowers get their share at Zuhair Murad, Giambattista Valli, and Elie Saab’s Haute Couture collections; and Matthew Williamson’s Pre-Fall collection. I guess doing something as simple as looking out the windows can produce a really fascinating collection.
