Presented to trend-setting fashionistas and fashion editors alike at the recent New York Fashion Week, Lauren’s spring/summer collection kicks of with pieces splashed in monotonous black and white stripes and colour combination.
Even Ralph Lauren’s iconic accessory - the Ricky Bag - receives graphic Mod treatment on patent leather!
The appearances of tartan print, newsboy cap, feminine dark pantsuit with palazzo pants, and Mary Quant-esque prints in this new collection seem to pay homage to inevitable fashion icons of the past such as Twiggy, Barbra Streisand (remember the newsboy cap she wore in “What’s Up Doc”?) and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
The colourful shifts, especially the ones with contrasting coloured panels, certainly bring a breath of fresh air to the wearer. Add the hot and humid climate in this part of the world; they are just perfect for your everyday wardrobe staple.
