Part 3 of my look at the recent New York RTW Collection for next Autumn will cover Ralph Lauren, the brand new 'Red Valentino' diffusion line, Reem Acra, Rodarte, Tadashi Shoji, Vera Wang, Victoria Beckham 2 collections and Zac Posen…quite a lot to cover, but still only just under photos, which is my psychological self-imposed limit for any post, as I believe that any longer than that and the poor reader starts to lose the will to live…one's attention span is only so long, even if you do take a massive amount of interest!! His work always reminds me of the era of the Great Gatsby — the US Aristocracy in a nation of equals!!
No surprises then, this time around, when the strains of the ' Downton Abbey ' theme music started up for the runway show!! British Aristo-drama is always popular with the Americans — as popular as it is with the Brits actually, it has to be said!! The Ralph Lauren show is exactly the right venue for this style of fashion. His day-wear consisted of men's s styling redrawn for women — velvet trouser suits, tartan jodhpurs, multi-coloured Fair-isle sleeveless pullovers with flat caps, tweedy hacking jackets and plus-fours…all they lacked were the guns and the dogs!!
This felt a bit like a costume drama in itself…. For evening though, he really pulled out all the stops — exquisitely beautiful black and gold dresses with Art Deco-style beading and gorgeous inbuilt jewellery — a gold feather collar with rusty-red beads at the neckline of a plain black evening gown, or a complete set of chains looped across the open back of a high-necked velvet column dress.
Right in the middle of all the black and gold were two brilliant shocking-pink dresses, which really injected a bit of high voltage drama into the middle of the proceedings!!
Here is the dress with all the back-chains — gorgeous idea, and certainly does away with the problem of deciding what jewellery to wear with it!! How about this for a red carpet show-stopper? An explosion of black and gold feathers over a slinky black satin fishtail gown…I'm waiting for someone to wear this on the red carpet — it's simply wonderful!!
