Fashion houses may not be willing to reveal what they have in store for fall 2012, but the pre-fall 2012 fashion collections are often a good indicator of the direction that they will be going in. There may be a range of inspiration from Slavic-style to graphic novels, but there remains one constant factor throughout each line: ladylike elegance.

Since this was the year of the royals, every designer has been enamored by the European pension for stately glamor. The pre-fall 2012 fashion collections are a reflection of this fascination with these blue blooded individuals. Each collection features sleek and feminine silhouettes that perfectly complement the gentlemen fad currently overtaking the men's fashion sphere as well. It's all about modern takes on refinement.
