Ralph Lauren Fall 2017 Collection

Since his very first women’s collections, Ralph Lauren has drawn inspiration from the timeless elegance of men’s formalwear and the sculptural power and grace of his automotive collection. For this reason, Ralph Lauren’s personal car collection, a representation of modern yet enduring styles and sensibilities, provided the perfect backdrop to present his Fall 2017 Collection.
“My cars have always been an inspiration to me. I see them as moving art. My women’s collection for Fall 2017 connects the elements of the speed, style and beauty of these handcrafted vehicles with the very modern, yet timeless spirit of the clothes. There is a sleekness, an innate sexiness and power to shapes sculpted out of high-tech patent leathers and high gloss silks,” said Ralph Lauren.
As with his automotive collection, an inherent sense of modernity and power threads through the lines of his Fall 2017 Collection, lending to the integrity and quality of his designs. These design details come to life in sculpted patent leather and high-gloss silk, two signature materials of his new Fall 2017 Collection. Traditional houndstooth and Glen plaid are reimagined in feminine proportions for the modern woman with men’s wear-inspired accents.
Tones of black and silver permeate the collection with pops of bright red, yellow and blue adding a playful elegance and bold vision of femininity to more refined pieces.
Design details, including the art-deco grille motif, embellished with a graphic “8” inspired by a 1920s Bugatti from Ralph Lauren’s personal collection, are resonant of the dramatic runway setting.
Elegant tuxedo dressing, with details inspired by pieces from Ralph Lauren’s personal wardrobe, is evident throughout the collection. Crafted with the same time-honored techniques used for Ralph Lauren Purple Label, these pieces represent the season’s purest expression of men’s formalwear for the modern woman.
Men’s Purple Label designs, complementing Ralph Lauren’s vision of a woman for fall, evoke sartorial racing sensibilities, mixing sport with refined, bespoke tailoring. Haberdashery pieces juxtapose with strong graphic color play, automotive references and powerful racing stripes in bold silver, red and yellow.
“To heighten the experience, men wearing looks from my Purple Label Collection will join the women on a runway lined with my cars in the pristine environment of my garage. This will create the ultimate expression of style and luxury for the woman and man of today,” said Ralph Lauren.
Timeless menswear styles are reimagined for a modern attitude. The iconic silhouette of a 50’s biker jacket from Ralph Lauren’s own personal wardrobe is updated in fine leather with a slim fit. Sleek down jackets with distinct accents, such as racing gear inspired patches and printed high performance motorcycle designs, are crafted for ease and movement. A new look for evening gives a twist on the jumpsuit, defined by a high waistline, double-pleated front and traditional tuxedo cloth.
Signature details in Purple Label formal wear culminate in surprising takes on classic American style. Dinner jackets in sartorial velvet, twill with suede fringe detailing and silk jacquards with American West motifs underscore the statement of self-expression for evening.
