Shot at The Polo Bar in New York, Ralph Lauren was inspired by the chic observations he made on his travels for the Pre-Fall 2017 collection.
Lauren has had a long-standing love of Savile Row tailoring, featuring a slew of Prince of Wales check on the shop floor. In addition to classic Laurenisms such as patch-pocket blazers, double-faced trenchcoats, and cozy shearlings, there were more overtly feminine renditions of menswear tropes. The collection also featured built-in corset and off-the-shoulder silhouettes, with a new pantsuit.
Lauren has a great deal of experience dressing women on the world stage, and his most pivotal fashion moments extend beyond the red carpet of Hollywood toward the hallowed halls of the White House. Whether your idea of a power suit includes a skirt or sharply tailored trousers, there were several compelling options here. The jumpsuit is becoming a mainstay for evening at Ralph Lauren, covered with a sparkling ’70s-inspired equestrian motif.
