For Pre-Fall 2012 Gilles Mendel showcased what he does best – floor-sweeping eveningwear and luscious fur. Gowns came carefully pleated and beautifully draped in monochrome colorways, while fur made its way onto jackets, vests, gloves, and scarves.
Monique Lhuillier went all-out glam for her Pre-Fall collection with voluminous cocktail dresses and ball gowns, tailored separates, and luxurious touches of fur.
From simple shifts to floor sweeping gowns and from monochrome to printed fabrics, Carolina Herrera’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection covered the gamut of understated sophistication.
3.1 Phillip Lim
While the most memorable look of Phillip Lim’s Pre-Fall 2012 collection may have been his comic book-inspired block letter top paired with a leather skirt, the bulk of the collection consisted of understated closet staple pieces including monochrome high-waist skirts, fitted jackets, and chic trousers cut just above the ankle.

It was all about hearty fabrics and statement outerwear in this season’s Proenza Schouler collection and while there was a sportswear feel to a number of the pieces (parkas, bungee cord drawstrings), the beautiful craftsmanship made this incredibly sophisticated collection one of the season’s best.
There was a cozy feel to Vera Wang’s collection this season, despite a number of skin-exposing looks, thanks to careful layering and relatively simple silhouettes. Included in the line-up were both neutral pieces, colorful prints, and bold monochrome looks.
Diane von Furstenberg
Diane von Furstenberg once again has the jet-setting lady-on-the-go covered with her somewhat retro Pre-Fall 2012 collection, which included a variety of popping prints fashioned into day-to-night closet staples.
