...was Ralph Lauren Spring Summer 2012.
The collection stated clearly: the 20s. From the bell hats to the platform sandals, the pastel colors to the pretty florals, it felt like being teleported into Gatsby-esque day-time.
The shoes were amazing in this section.
Then, it evolved into more posh ground, perhaps imagined for a Sunday brunch, and the pallette turned literally white as it was "in" then and it is and will be now. I don't think white-on-white will ever go out, just like black won't, either.
As things progressed into fancier and fancier garments, I was enthralled with the variety of fabrics, styles and styling of Ralph Lauren's show. Feathers, liquid satin, beads, silk, draping, encrusted rhinestones, long necklaces, flapper dresses, sheath dresses, sheer layers, headscarves, you name it, it was there in the 20s and it was on the runway as well.
Romanian girl Andreea Diaconu rocking it big time.
What about you, darlings? Did you like it?
Are you going to be Daisies?
It's definitely one of my favourites of NYFW.
