NYFW: Ralph Lauren Roaring 20' Style

If I could revisit any time in fashion it would be the 1920's - I adore everything about the era! The exquisite drape of a woman's gown, the elegant simplicity of the designs, the sumptuous fabrics, the delicious embellishments - it was an era of unsurpassed progress in every aspect of life, but especially in fashion.

Ralph Lauren's Spring 2012 collection was like stepping into an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. I could picture Daisy Buchanan wearing any number of these divine creations! The color palette was delicate pastels, watercolor florals juxtaposed with glinting metallics. There was even a spectacular peach leather motorcycle jacket paired with cream palazzo pants.

The vibe was a mix of menswear inspired wide-leg trousers with ultra feminine ruffle front silk blouses and cashmere cardis, lovely silk chiffon dresses that swirled above raffia platform sandals, floral print skirts and slipdresses.

The show finished with an array of dazzling evening gowns in metallic fabrics that were absolutely stunning. My favorite collection of the entire week!
