The look 1920s flapper meets Hollywood star, with shimmer and sparkle galore.
Key pieces A 1920s theme ran throughout Ralph Lauren’s show as cloche hats and feathered boleros accompanied iridescent gowns. Watercolour florals and sequined embellishment added interest on spaghetti-strap silk slip-style dresses. Tailored db suits and separates with wide-leg palazzo pants continued the 1920s theme.
Colours A green, pink and blue pastel palette in addition to all-white ensembles.
Commercial appeal The 1920s were mixed with a dose of classic 1990s Ralph Lauren. The lingerie slip-style dresses may not look new enough to customers come spring, and with other shows offering such vivid colour and print it’s difficult to see Ralph Lauren standing out from the crowd in spring 12.
