Ralph Lauren, Fashion Week

We can always count on Ralph Lauren to take us on an inspired journey, and this morning’s runway show was no exception. For fall, the designer was influenced by nautical sailor style as well as Russian opulence. The former translated into stovepipe pants, cable knit cashmere sweaters, and even a wool evening dress worn with a sailor cap. The latter was all about glamour—velvet, beading, feathers, and lace. The closing looks, a series of stunning gowns in rich jewel tones, offered the perfect dose of romance. What more could we ask for on Valentine’s Day? See our favorite looks in the gallery!
