I was once asked who I would choose if I had to pick just one designer to wear for the rest of my life. Without hesitation, I said Ralph Lauren because he covers everything – casual, business, sport, evening, and even underwear. He is also one of my favorite designers and I thought I knew everything about him!
Well! Ralph Lauren showed two collections in one show. For the first time, he showed a Polo collection for women. I could not believe that he had never done this but as I went through my closet looking for Ralph Lauren pieces that said Polo, I don’t have any. They all say Ralph Lauren, Ralph Lauren Black, even Rugby but no Polo - not even my Olympic and Pink Pony t-shirts. Then, I went to the website and pulled up the women’s Polo shirts since I don’t own any– they are Ralph Lauren Blue Label! I cannot believe I never knew this but you learn something new every day and I found this piece of fashion trivia completely fascinating!
The collection was youthful and sporty. Some looks had a black base with the occasional splash of color; while others had the RL countryside vibe. It was the quintessential Ralph Lauren style that many of us know and love with a fresh, new twist. The full collection can be seen on style.com and a couple of my favorite picks are below!
