100 Bold Fall Collections

From Biker-Chic Ensembles to Luxe Lace Runways

— May 17, 2012 — Luxury
As we're settling into the spring and summer season, it's time to start looking ahead to fall -- or at least it is in the world of fashion. The Fall 2012 collections that designers have put forward have already struck it big. Fashionable, luxurious and intriguing, these designs are enough to make you wish the leaves were falling and it was a little cooler out.

The greatly varying styles that make up these wonderful collections are unique, or have a modern twist on a reminiscent style. Some chose to play up the girly, elegant look while others opted for grungy, harder looks. Either way, the Fall 2012 collections are a great way to get revved up for next autumn.
