Entire Ralph Lauren Purple Label fall 2017 collection [Gallery]
Ever since the first-ever woman's collections, you could always count on Ralph Lauren employing a mix of timeless, structured formalwear with a bit of funky cool – a nod to Lauren's love of automotive heritage. This season is no different, and to further accent how much motors mean to the designer and his collection, the fall line 2017 was shown off against Mr Lauren's own collection of classic cars.
“My cars have always been an inspiration to me. I see them as moving art. My 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.” said Lauren.
Ralph Lauren's Purple Label is a mixture of sporty, refined pieces with an emphasis on bespoke tailoring. There were the usual automotive references, this time seen in racing stripes in 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.
Lauren also played with iconic silhouettes. The look of an iconic 1950s collection from Ralph Lauren's own personal wardrobe has been updated with fine leather and slim fit. There are also sleek down jackets with distinct accents, such as one with racing gear-inspired patches.
The Ralph Lauren Purple Label fall 2017 collection is available in RL boutiques around the Middle East right now.
