Maybe it's the abnormally hot summer, but it's hard to believe that cold weather is coming. And, this preview of German designer Clarissa Labin's Spring collection definitely isn't helping our total winter denial.

The former head designer for H&M, Labin takes inspiration from the Swedish mega-chain's trendy, wear-everywhere pieces, but on more luxe scale.

At first glance, her collection of loose-fit dresses, boyfriend cardigans, and slim shorts don't seem too groundbreaking. But details like seashell motifs and ruffles (set against a color palette of mustard yellow, black, and off-whites) are what set these clothes apart from the rest.

Who knows? Maybe by spring, we'll even be daring enough to attempt the cut-out bike shorts (but we can't promise anything)!
