Better find someplace to go, because the latest pre-fall collections are all dressed up. Vera Wang showed a glamorous counterpart to her Gothic schoolgirl with a few languid throwbacks to Thirties eveningwear, while Monique Lhuillier worked in sensual-but-sophisticated draped dresses. At J.Mendel, Gilles Mendel layered luxurious furs over softly pleated cocktail dresses, and Naeem Khan envisioned his woman as a bewitching goddess cloaked in elaborately beaded blush tones. Even at Helmut Lang, Nicole and Michael Colovos took a more grown-up approach to the season, working floor-length skirts and streamlined jackets into their long, lean silhouette.
