Ralph Lau­ren

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

New washes and dis­tress­ing tech­niques on leather and denim pro­vided a fresh look for the jack­ets and jeans in the Black La­bel sports­wear col­lec­tion. Zips and padded knees re­vealed a mil­i­tary flavour, as did cardi­gans fea­tur­ing patches, pock­ets and epaulettes. Black and olive un­der­lined the army theme. Pat­terns and tex­tures clashed within the Pur­ple La­bel part of the show. The 1920s was the in­flu­ence here, with evening­wear dis­play­ing more than a touch of the dandy, such as pocket watches and high- sit­ting col­lars in con­trast­ing colours on striped dress shirts. Three- piece suits were dec­o­rated with her­itage pat­terns and ties had art deco prints. Fab­rics in­cluded Black Watch tar­tan and rich vel­vet. Ca­sual looks in­cluded Ital­ian cash­mere trousers. Wear­able lux­ury is a phrase of­ten used to de­scribe Ralph Lau­ren, and once again the la­bel has achieved this dif­fi­cult bal­ance.
