“My cars have always been an inspiration to me. I see them as moving art. My women’s collection for Fall 2017 connects the elements of the speed, style and beauty of these handcrafted vehicles with the very modern, yet timeless spirit of the clothes. There is a sleekness, an innate sexiness and power to shapes sculpted out of high-tech patent leathers and high gloss silks,” – Ralph Lauren.
Complementing the spirit of the modern, timeless woman and the sleek designs of the automotive collection, Men’s Purple Label will be shown alongside the women’s runway collection.
“To heighten the experience, men wearing looks from my Purple Label Collection will join the women on a runway lined with my cars in the pristine environment of my garage. This will create the ultimate expression of style and luxury for the woman and man of today,” -Ralph Lauren.
Continuing on the success of his past two runway-to-retail collections, all looks from the show will be instantly accessible to consumers globally as Ralph Lauren continues to lead the evolution of the consumer shopping experience. Taking accessibility a step further, select accessories, including the Houndstooth Celia Pump and the RL Bucket Bag, were made available for purchase even before they walked the runway.
Items from the Fall 2017 collection will be immediately available on Ralphlauren.com and in global flagship stores, including New York, Beverly Hills, London, Paris, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Shanghai and through top retail partners including Saks Fifth Avenue, Moda Operandi, Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
