Pre Fall Trends: Woman sitting on adriondack chair wearing the Billina in Light Taupe


“Modern Tailor” defines the theme of our pre-fall collection. Think of it as a playful interpretation of the season’s more sophisticated mode: soft layers (rather than T-shirts); tailored trousers (goodbye, sweatpants); statement jewelry and leather footwear (replacing hair in a messy bun and sneakers). After two years of athleisure looks for remote work, a more dressed-up sensibility seems entirely appropriate.

Our designer went back to the roots of Aquatalia to reinvent sartorial classics. Tailored ankle boots with a chiseled toe and stacked heel take center stage, as do pointed-toe ankle boots with sculptural heels, oversized chain-link hardware, edgy zipper accents and rich, lustrous croc-embossed leather in a deep palette. For casual silhouettes, we reaffirmed our commitment to supreme comfort with soft nappa leather, box-calf combat boots and loafers with substantial yet ultra-light outsoles.

Our new classics are designed to provide endless versatility along with our trusted weatherproof technology for transitioning into the cooler autumnal months.

A collegiate direction defines this preppy theme, which is rooted in classic, value-driven design, reinvigorated through modern details. Think tweed and wool flannel tailoring, argyle knits, berets, beanies, monograms, and leather satchells.

This direction recognizes the importance of a considered and sustainable long-term product strategy, with seasonless designs that can be easily transitioned. A refined minimalist aesthetic is central to this story. Feature hardware and heel shapes redefine classic shapes. Good-quality materials are essential.

A utilitarian design direction that highlights industrial-inspired hardwares and polished leather. An overarching focus on functional and comfort-driven design. Layered outerwear, drapey seperates, juxtaposition of soft fabrics and punky hard accessories.
