The Latest Covetable Looks From Pre-Fall 2012 — Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, and More
Retro throwbacks, tailored perfection, and soft feminine references — pre-Fall '12 is a beautiful blend of structured shapes and unexpected girlie details. Lanvin delivered deliberately unfinished embellishments like exposed dart seams and raw edges, while Givenchy revived its "greatest hits" prints (think tropics and rottweiler motifs), and Sarah Burton traveled back in time to the '60s English countryside to whip up a cool equestrian-inspired McQ collection. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. We're obsessed with Carven's nod to mod silhouettes, Derek Lam's focus on detachable mink collars, and Versace's Studio 54 vibe, too. It's a pre-season worth poring over, so get to it. Click through to see even more inspired looks and gorgeous accessories from Pre-Fall 2012.
