We're going to have a bit of a Sunday Runway on Friday this week . . . since . . . well . . . because it's fashion week - and sometimes things can't hold until Sunday.
Ralph hit the runway Thursday morning awash in nautical themes and classic ladies looks for Spring of 2016. It's territory that I think we've seen before from the runways of Ralph Lauren - but, much like a well-worn and well-loved pair of trousers - sometimes there's a excitement about finding the 'expected' on the runway.
Still - the styling is VERY on point - and incredibly wearable. And chic. And luxurious.
Welcome aboard the U.S.R.L. . . . .
"The seafaring theme was particularly hard to miss in a series of
looks in a super-bold, geometric sail print. A color-blocked sleeveless jumpsuit had the
graphic punch of nautical flags. Clingy knit dresses that took cues from athletic
swimsuits looked like they’d be fun to wear—in particular, the evening versions
with their sexy, strappy backs. And who doesn’t love a striped knit?
Speaking of stripes, the stars of the show were the evening dresses
in cotton broadcloth shirting fabric:
haute silhouettes in a humble fabric."
