Avant Toi is notorious for creating the cutting edge of luxury knitwear. Their avant-garde work has gained popularity due to the innovative production techniques that are unique to Avant Toi and their process. The artistic director Mirko Ghignone, is unafraid of bending or breaking the rules. He continues to push the boundaries of dyeing and fabric manipulation, in every material from the finest cashmere, to silk and linen. The juxtaposition of these materials and the manner in which they are patterned and dyed is part of what makes Avant Toi so intriguing. It is also what has kept many waiting for Avant Toi Pre-Fall 2019.
Spring and Fall collections remain the primary focus throughout many brands’ release schedules. However, a number of other collections are also being released throughout the year, such as Resort, Pre-Spring, and Pre-Fall. All of this depends on the brand, as they all operate differently. Many brands produce Resort collections in summer styles for those who want a new wardrobe to vacation in. Meanwhile, Pre-Fall and Pre-Spring serve as a taste of the colors and textures used in the major seasons that follow. Avant Toi has organized their Pre-Fall collection to communicate their core styles, colors, and textures for Fall 2019.
The Avant Toi Pre-Fall 2019 collection, gives many a glimpse at a color palette that ranges from soft blues to coral, magenta, as well as brown and black tones. There are snippets of textural elements that can be seen in the patterns that have been hand painted on each sweater and felted scarf. Though the scarves are plush cashmere, the fringed edges and patterning showcase edgy textural elements. These tactile details will make an appearance later during the release of Avant Toi’s Fall 2019 collection, and pair perfectly with these functional Pre-Fall pieces.
