Step into the magical world of Downton Abbey with the amazing and ultra-sophisticated Ralph Lauren Fall 2012 ready-to-wear collection presented at New York Fashion Week.
This year more than ever highly-acclaimed designers were
mesmerized and inspired by the British countryside. Downton Abbey
is the ultimate TV series which dazzled the world with its
intriguing plot and amazing cast. This year we have the chance to
slip into the skin of our favorite movie characters who don't seek
for any excuse to sport outstanding and unconventional ensembles.
The Ralph Lauren Fall 2012 RTW
collection resembled a complete symphony conducted by this beloved
style godfather following the soundtrack of Downton Abbey.
The structure of the sizzling show was constructed on different levels and elaborated numerous themes. In the first movement or the 'allegro' we have a fascinating lineup of tomboy style suits inspired by one of the most impressive characters from the TV series, Lady Mary. In this section, masculine refinement meets grown-up glamor and uptown class. Double-breasted coats and fabulous suits along with silk and velvet ensembles earned the admiration of style critics and adventurous fashionistas.
The silver screen lure pervaded the complete collection of Ralph
Lauren. The second theme makes reference to the flapper ear or the
Jazz Age with its typical sparkle and extravagance. Juggling with
oh-so-popular shades like gold and black is indeed the safest
method for the exquisite designer to attract the attention of style
fans. Moving to the dark side, we have the chance to spot a
repertoire of all black dresses, dark colored suits and other
evening looks embellished with Art Deco style silver and gold
embroidery details. Claiming that the latest RL show was
'versatile' is an understatement! In fact, the laureate designer
succeeded in taking us back and forth in time with an amazing
presentation of flamboyant ensembles.
The fabulous symbiosis of hounds-tooth wool blazers and coats with body-conscious and silky evening gowns is one of the greatest innovations offered by Ralph Lauren for the upcoming season. The first class fabric selection which includes velvet, shearling and tweed reflected the creator's consciousness of the fashion folds' perennial need for versatility. Those who were in a hunt for surprising and unconventional outfit ideas were definitely thrilled by the sight of the cropped leather jacket armed up with golden details and teamed up with baggy pants. Accessories contributed to the heart-warming atmosphere which granted every fashion enthusiast with the privilege of indulging herself in a once in a lifetime experience. Masculine top hats, leather gloves and glitz-and-glamorous jewelries crowned the impressive outfits with an extra glam factor.
