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.

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.

Is Ralph Lauren fostering the next generation of Karlies, Kendalls, and Gigis? Seems so, as there were more than a few supermodels-in-the-making at Tuesday evening's Polo Ralph Lauren Children's show at the Central Park Zoo in New York City. You'll recognize some familiar—and pretty darn cute—faces on the runway. Dance Moms star Maddie Zeigler walked her third runway ever (her first for Ralph Lauren, though) alongside her sister Mackenzie, Rachel Zoe's son Skyler Berman did his best Derek Zoolander, and Levi Miller, star of the new Peter Pan film Pan, made quite the fashionable impression at the show. We went backstage to get you behind-the-scenes footage of the annual event, which celebrated the Ralph Lauren Children’s Literacy program.   Written by Sophia Chabbott, writer for glamour.com Source...
