RALPH LAUREN SPRING/SUMMER 2015 NEW YORK FASHION WEEK

RALPH LAUREN indulged in his sportier rather than his Hollywood side this morning (though Hollywood was there and present with Julianne Moore in the front row) for a collection that was incredibly wearable and took the safari message and moved into something soft and extravagant.
It was an expedition through India as opposed to Africa though: khaki gazars and silk shantung for soft draping atop jodhpurs; shirt dresses and parka jackets; jewels of Jaipur Palace shine accessorising necks, ears and tumbling down torsos to contrast the terrain tones beneath. They came punchily accented by bright lemon, magenta, orange and hot pink for scarves beneath natty safari-style jackets, tight trousers beneath with huge zip pockets – perfect to stash all those treasures in. Those same pockets featured on eveningwear in the guise of billowing-skirt parkas, while less utilitarian options came by way of strapless or asymmetric gowns, sveltely wrapped around the body.
