TOWN & COUNTRY ... RALPH LAUREN STYLE.
I LOVE RALPH LAUREN.
I fell hopelessly in love with his Polo's, Chinos, Sweaters and Caps back in 1994 when walking through the Polo Ralph Lauren Store on Orchard Road in Singapore. I remember it clearly ... it was love at first sight and I have not been unfaithful since. The Man is a Legend. From Fashion to Home Interior. From Cancer Charity work to owning his own Polo Team. He has it all covered.
Who knew that things were about to get even better ...
Fast forward to September 2014 and we are presented with the center piece of his fashion empire. The new line: POLO for Women. To say I am excited is an understatement. I wrote a small piece about the Flagship Store opening on 5th Avenue in New York. POLO is a little younger, a little more Bohemian and shows a whole lot more attitude.
It is not about the key pieces for which we love the Brand and will always go back for. It is about the pairing of the unexpected. A silky blouse matched with a biker leather jacket, skinny jeans and black Mary-Janes. Soft Flannel Shirts with Navajo turquoise jewelry, Moto denims and Hiking Boots with heels at least 3 inches! Studded handbags made of the softest leather with just the right amount of Vintage thrown in.
Honestly, the line is incredible and the positive feedback from our customers here at HAMPTONS CLUB has exceeded all expectations!
For FALL 2014 I wanted to show you only three of the Trends we were presented with. I hope you love them as much as we do! xo ds.
Downtown Chic, Romantic Rebel and The Great Outdoors.
WE START WITH "THE GREAT OUTDOORS"
CELEBRATE THE GREAT OUTDOORS! FLANNEL, NAVAJO HERITAGE PIECES
AND COMFY JACKETS IN COLORFUL PATTERNS!
BORROW FROM THE BOYS! WORKMEN SHIRTS ARE DURABLE
AND OH SO COMFY DURING THE COLDER DAYS OF FALL.
NEXT ONE UP .... "DOWNTOWN CHIC"
THE LEATHER BIKER JACKET IS DEFINITELY A "MUST HAVE"!
BUT REMEMBER: NEVER PAIR YOUR JACKET WITH BIKER BOOTS AT THE
SAME TIME! IT IS TOO MASCULINE. WEAR IT WITH HEELS
AND A LITTLE BLACK DRESS (LBD) INSTEAD ...
LET'S CONTINUE TO THE "ROMANTIC REBEL"
SOFT SILK DRESSES PAIRED WITH BOYFRIEND TWEED BLAZERS
AND MOTO LEATHER BOOTS! REMEMBER: IT IS ALL ABOUT
THE PAIRING OF THE UNEXPECTED!
HERE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE OF THE NAVAJO SILVER
AND TURQUOISE LEATHER BELT ... THE JEWELRY TOO
ARE VINTAGE NAVAJO PIECES ... JUST FABULOUS!
AND IT GOES WITH ALL THREE TRENDS!!!
For my next posting i think it should be "All about the Boys". The iconic Polo Line for Men
shows some attitude in FALL 2014 and brings us rough leather Jackets, Vintage Cord Trousers,
chunky knit Sweaters and rugged downtown prep! Here is a quick preview ...
