New York Fashion Week Spring 2015: Ralph Lauren

 

NYFW S/S 2015: Ralph LaurenAside from his estate that’s worth something like $7 billion and a car collection that consists of 70 supercars rare enough to be exhibited in museums worldwide, this is a designer who is undoubtedly a legend and has been a crucial part of American fashion history. In the past 48 years that Ralph Lauren has been in the industry, he has grown from a tie-maker who worked out of a drawer at Empire State Building to a world renowned fashion designer whose works influence everyone from top celebrities to those who are perfectly indifferent when it comes to fashion (i.e. Polo collar shirt that you and I have owned at some point if not currently found in the closet already- if not, check your parents’).NYFW S/S 2015: Ralph LaurenThis empire Lauren has built over four decades is an illustration of his influence and authority which is also reflected on his designs. As with other seasoned experts, his designs are not only trendsetting and inspiring but tell a story and suggests a lifestyle that is quintessentially Ralph Lauren.

NYFW S/S 2015: Ralph LaurenAn ambassador of American Sportswear and elegance, colorful statement jewelry, occasional pops of amethyst, orange, and lemon along with not-so-muted use of accessories added drama to a safari-inspired collection overflowing with sage, black, and white in designs pulled from his archive: cargo pants, safari jackets, jodhpurs, jumpsuits, and evening dresses.

NYFW S/S 2015: Ralph LaurenOverall, it was a great mix of casual and chic, a realistic rendering of Lauren girls on vacation somewhere exclusive. Stand-outs were sage green and ivory ensemble worn with bright orange pumps and a spacious messenger bag, ghurka tulle beaded evening dress styled with antique gold metallic nappa sandal and a giant hobo.
