“February 2017” isn’t only celebrated for major award functions and of course Valentine’s Day but also for Ralph Lauren’s latest collection!
“My February 2017 Collection was inspired by a nomadic spirit, an exotic sophistication contrasting pure shapes with rustic textures, burnished golds, shades of the desert, and artful, one-of-a-kind jewelry. It embodies the spirit of the woman I design for, always seeking a style that is bold and personal.”
– Ralph Lauren on the collection: The February 2017 Collection
#1. Get the shade right!
Well, the Pantone’s Colour of the Year suddenly seems to have not much power on our famous designer collections! There is no Green or Chrome Yellow (the top 2 colours in the Pantone’s 10 Top Colours of the Year list)! Instead, walking down the runway was shades of ivory, tan, white, cream, khaki, metallic colours and the dominant black. Looks like this year’s colours are on the safer side of the line – these colours are not daring or audacious – instead, they are elegant and classic. They add charm to the felinity of these models! So yes, these colours show the promise of to prevail this year despite any of the top-colour-of-the-year list!
#2. Crochet is back!
Ralph Lauren has found a key to the pathway of the old crochet – and now, it is back into fashion. Similar to lace or net, crochet is a style that promotes the peak-a-boo fashion trend. Since all of the pieces from the collection are hand-crocheted, it is a ton more special and delicate. Elegance? It is the epitome of that element! Fancy? Well, see it for yourself!
#3. Layering is an art
Just like how my friend in one of the previous posts Top 5 Fashion 2017 Q & A answered By Two Leading Bloggers mentioned that layering is important, Ralph Lauren mentions it in his own unique way – the runway NYFW. Layering is the best during the winter season. It builds a mystic and a suspense aura around you. Also, you have to do it right to stand out!
#4. It is the Monochrome Maxis this time!
Even though there were a few knee-length dresses, that caught our sight, it was the maxis that stole the show! The special thing about these maxis are that it is of course monochrome – and absolutely zero prints. Therefore, it is a classic and you can pair it with any accessory or like the models here, with no accessory at all! You have all the freedom to do pair it up however you want it to be! The metallic touch to most of the maxis showcased gives a sense of mystical happenings!
