The menswear and couture shows have been rolling out in rapid succession, but Pre-Fall 2009 continues to haunt us. Frankly, we'd skip right over it if we didn't think that mid-season can offer particularly revealing clues as to what the impending fall collection will look like. That said, it seems Stella McCartney is in a darker, more textured mood for Fall. Will we see this attitude on the runway come March? As much as we'd like to count on McCartney's cool light heartedness, we think her this is an act of foreshadowing indeed.
