Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Other Brands

Ralph Lauren started his ready-to-wear spring collection off with a clean white jumpsuit, but he used small details in order to hint at what the audience should expect from the show. The 75-year-old designer donned the youthful looking model in a low, sailor-esque hat, with navy blue accessories that hinted at the idea of a nautical theme for the Ralph Lauren spring/summer 2016 line-up, but the audience couldn’t quite be sure yet. Even with his second look, Lauren appeared to be toying with his viewers by giving more hints, as with a “U.S.R.L. 1967” patch on the front of his second look: another white jumpsuit. But these subtle hints crumbled away once the next look hit the runway, and the audience was certain they were introduced to Lauren’s maritime vision.

Ralph Lauren Spring/Summer 2016 Collection

Featuring youthful dresses in nautical classics of navy, white, and bright orange, Lauren showed his range as a designer, with a variety of dresses, pants, jackets, and gowns, all of which were impeccably made. It is hard to pinpoint the best pieces in the Ralph Lauren spring 2016 collection, because they all work so well together, and there are so many different categories that he encompassed in the show. One of his first pieces, which is a real staple, is a lightweight, navy blue tailored jacket, with large gold buttons for embellishment to support the nautical theme.
Lauren doesn’t stop, however, with the traditional sailor inspiration. He gives his audience the whole maritime experience, drawing inspiration from all aspects of the world at sea. The first glimpse of this inspiration is his floor-length, white skirt that seemed to mimic rolling waves, paired with the classic sailor, striped navy and white top and tied sweater. The next striking textile was one that appeared to be water itself, rippling as it walked the catwalk, in the form of a capris-length jumpsuit.

The designer has a whimsical way of introducing new ideas to his show, without totally giving away the surprise for the audience. The first main showing of this idea was with his introduction to the vibrant geometric pattern. His look featuring a thin navy sweater over a white polo, with navy resort pants featured a yellow stripe down the side.This was the first sight of yellow in this collection, but it was subtle. This following look, which was just as simple, featured the model carrying a large bag with the vibrant pattern on it. It did wonders for accentuating the outfit, and playfully nudge the audience to the idea of introducing the bold, unexpected pattern to the collection, and the usage of the pattern ended with a full-length evening gown. He later used this same idea to introduce the bright red color.

There is something safe yet intricate about the amount of white pieces Lauren put in his line. A standout of the show, however, was his white, tea-length dress with lace-up top, featuring a tan belt for accentuation. His use of tan leather continues through the collection, in a variety of jackets, pants, and accessories.

Ralph Lauren’s spring 2016 collection featured a multitude of must-have garments, and really showed his expertise in dressmaking. It’s hard to pinpoint the best pieces of the night, but he definitely gave a spectacular nine-gown finale, with each dress being just as glamorous as the one before. With cotton fabrics, the traditionally glamorous eveningwear was given a humble twist, allowing for spectacular silhouettes to be achieved with a more everyday fabric. We couldn’t have asked for a better finale.

GIVENCHY BRASS CLUTCH – A STATEMENT OF BOLD SIMPLICITY

Other Brands


The latest accessory to join your wardrobe should, without a doubt, be the classy new Givenchy clutch. This particular minaudière, which acts as a jewelry-piece-cum-evening-purse, is made of soft gold-toned brass and is a complete makeover from regular minaudières with its upright rectangular curvy shape and smooth edges. The metal clutch has a soft leather lining on the inside and though, at first glance it resembles a flask or a gadget case of some sort, we can’t help but be intrigued by its pale luster and stark absence of clutter.

The clutch could definitely be the perfect accessory for an evening soirée or event. The subtly striking color could add glamour and sophistication to your wardrobe and could be paired with almost anything; though a black outfit would be best suited. You can buy the gold brass clutch at Net-A-Porter for $2,600.

Just like clothing or shoes, we believe in the power of the handbag wardrobe. In some instances, you’ll want to have a big, statement-making satchel on your arm, but other situations call for something smaller and lighter, although no less impactful. For those occasions, the brand new, limited edition Ralph Lauren RL Clutch is a beautiful option.

Ralph Lauren is a brand built on the classic ideals of American aesthetics, and the clean design of this clutch, finished with a gold monogram inspired by a timepiece from Lauren’s Automotive Watch collection, fits that description well. The structure is simple; the interior has two compartments, one of which is ideal for a phone, while the other, larger section holds essentials like keys, a slim wallet and your favorite lipstick.

The RL Clutch can work in a multitude of situations, depending on your needs. The clutch comes with a detachable shoulder strap in matching lambskin or suede, which fastens discreetly under the top flap closure. When it’s in use, the bag is a mini crossbody perfect for a hands-free day of shopping or other errands. When the strap is removed, the bag is an effortlessly chic handheld companion for dinner or a cocktail.

The clutch comes in three versions, all exclusive to RalphLauren.com and the brand’s Madison Avenue flagship in New York City: supple lambskin in red or navy, or soft, tactile suede in a rich shade of caramel. The colors, like the design itself, speak to Ralph Lauren’s embrace of enduring American style; it’s not hard to imagine this bag paired with other staples, like vintage jeans and a white button-down, for a subtly sophisticated look. For evening, trade the jeans for a slim skirt and remove the clutch’s shoulder strap.
