About an hour-and-a-half outside New York City, a fleet of Mercedes-Benzes and Cadillac Escalades were lined up in a sleepy section of Bedford, New York. The reason? Ralph Lauren’s epic fall 2017 runway show at the designer’s personal garage, filled with haute automobiles including Bugattis, Ferraris, and naturally, Lamborghinis. However, those weren’t the only tricks up Lauren’s well-cut sleeve. He also had a front row filled with iconic and strong women including Diane Keaton, Katie Holmes, and Jessica Chastain. Chastain, the face of Lauren’s latest fragrance, Woman, dressed the part in a three-piece white suit which she called her “homage to Bianca Jagger!” Here, the actress shares snaps from the evening, including meeting the icon himself and scoping out 'Ralph’s Garage's very...

The Navy Blazer For Sailors and Sartorial Innovators Alike

363496

The Navy Blazer, a piece which Ralph Lauren – a man synonymous with classic Americana – adopted as one of his own trademarks, is in fact quintessentially British in origin. During the 19th century, this simple tailored jacket was embellished with buttons in pewter, brass, silver and mother of pearl, but the fastenings served a secondary purpose other than to hold two sides of the garment in place; they were embossed with symbols signifying the prestigious club, sports team or school to which the wearer belonged.

The Timeless Allure of a Camel Winter Coat

363130
Over the course of time, some items of clothing become so iconic, are referred to with such unthinking regularity, that their very names become distanced from the core principles on which they were first founded. The camel coat is one such example. Named not only for its characteristic rich, dusty hue, this garment is so called because it is made from the ultra-soft undercoat of the Bactrian camel – a two-humped species native to Central Asia. The insulating properties of this fine fleece made it strikingly practical, while its outward properties represented the height of luxury; Tartan and Mongolian rulers would order swathes of cloth woven from it, creating silky layers which would protect the wearer from both extreme heat...

The Spring 2016 Guide to Every Single Stripe

1

Stripes stormed the spring/summer 2016 runways in every style you can possibly imagine—some ran horizontal while others vertical; there were thick lines and super skinny ones, too. At Ralph Lauren, asymmetric blue-and-white stripes lined a strapless evening gown, while at Salvatore Ferragamo, stripes went in every direction in bold hues. Clearly, these stripes went far beyond the classic navy-and-white nautical ones we all know and love, but they absolutely have just as much statement-making appeal. Get a head start on the trend with this primer on all the different stripes that will be hitting stores this season.
