My 5 Favorite Pre-Fall 2012 Collections

Before I really started following fashion designers,  I thought they only released two collections per year-- one for spring and one for fall. I was wrong! Like resort collections, pre-fall collections are released during that gap between designers' spring and fall shows.

This year, there were a bunch of amazing collections, but I managed to narrow it down to my top five. Here are my picks for the best collections from Pre-Fall 2012, in alphabetical order:

Burberry Prorsum Pre-Fall 2012

Burberry always exudes a sort of vintage glamour, and this collection did just that. They used classic shapes and luxe fabrics to create a timeless look. Plus, the adorable bow detailing adds a touch of femininity.

Honor Pre-Fall 2012

I noticed that most designers chose to work with darker colors for their pre-fall collections, but not Honor! Instead they went with bold, punchy colors and used unexpected color pairings (like red and pink) to create a chic and stylish aesthetic.

Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2012

Jason Wu stuck with his signature well-tailored and ladylike ensembles, but with a tough girl twist. I love the way he incorporated a bit of leather into every look. If his upcoming collection at Target looks anything like this, I'm definitely going to be broke come spring.

Jo No Fui Pre-Fall 2012

I've really been into faux fur lately, and I love how design house Jo No Fui incorporated it into their pre-fall collection-- the fur looks glam, but in a down-to-earth and totally wearable way.

Thakoon Pre-Fall 2012

Thakoon used a gorgeous color palette for this collection that was filled with lots of neutrals and soft colors. I especially love the way they played with different shapes and volume, plus the looks seem like they would be super-comfortable to boot.

What do you think of these collections? Which one is your favorite? Have you been checking designers' pre-fall collections? I'd love to know!
