Ralph Lauren, Act I at New York Fashion Week
today Feb 13, 2015
Guests at the Polo Ralph Lauren show enjoyed three runway events in one on Thursday. The designer presented his men's and women's sportswear lines, followed by 16 suave silhouettes from the Ralph Lauren Purple label.
Despite the announcement of New York's first dedicated menswear fashion week in July, this season New York's premier runway player stayed true to form, producing another multi-runway extravaganza.
The famed designer will unveil the second act of his Fall 2015 fashion extravaganza at the runway show for his main namesake line at 10am on February 19.
This first act spotlighting the Polo Ralph Lauren label offered an array of the brand's trademark country casuals, re-styled for city living. Color-popping shearling, suede and velvet was mixed up with contrasting plaid, aztec motifs and cozy-chic knitwear.
Boy-for-girl tailoring referenced the current mood for hybrid fashion. For his premier menswear line, Ralph Lauren borrowed jumpsuits from the girls and served up the garment as a daring alternative to the tuxedo for guys.
In a release the designer commented that "The Polo guy is any age, any place, with a look that is individual, cool and inspired by the energy around him," -- the latter certainly goes for Ralph Lauren who displays a real flair for producing fashion-forward fashion lines. One can only envy the designer who manages to juggle so many balls in an increasingly demanding industry.
