I have fallen in love again. Yes, I have!
This time though, it is with the Ralph Lauren Spring 2013 collection! I know, I know, Spring has not yet sprung for most of us. That is the reason why I want us to be reminded of the
delights we can look forward to this Spring.
Wowed by his simple and elegant designs, I wanted to hug dear Mr Lauren. He is a star in my eyes. For those of you who are still wondering why, it may be due to the fact that you have not yet had the pleasure of looking at his new collection.
So what is his Spring 2013 collection about? The famous designer's inspiration comes from a Bohemian and Spanish influence. Olé!
The three main colours of his collection are black, white and fiery red. All very dramatic, I know, isn't this great? It is all about lean and flowing lines, chic and elegance.
Black bolero jackets, worn with crisp white shirts and slim or wide trousers. The knee-high and maxi dresses and glorious red gowns are reminiscent of Spanish elegance and style.
This collection also gives us vibrant colours, such as turquoise, fiery orange, deep purple and some lovely floral patterns.
With the help of fluid lines, billowing skirts and feminine elegance, this designer shows in his creations that he loves women.
The only pieces of his collection I am not très keen on are the jodhpurs. I don't think that they do a woman's figure any favours, and let's face it, who wants to wear trousers that will visually widen their hips and thighs? 'Pas moi', not me.
Nonetheless, this collection is a highly wearable collection. The problem is that I want to own most of the pieces. Not great news for my bank manager.
I'll leave you with this Youtube video of his catwalk accompanied by beautiful Spanish guitar music, enjoy!
