Ralph Lauren-Fall 2007

Even though the Ralph Lauren fall collection follows the usual brown, grey, and black color pallet (except for its leather metallic biker jackets and knee-length skirts), I think the cut and tailoring is exceptional. The look is sharp and polished, a mix of American classic and Parisian chic. 
To start with, there are wonderfully cut dress suits in a range of different materials.

High-waisted,grey...I love the buttons. Subtle, but chic.

The way the suede is draped is genius.

A soft metallic brown...again, I love the buttons.

Next, we have the coats. Ahh...the coats are so wonderfully girly, with a flared bottom that looks like it belongs on the petticoat of an evening gown. I think they're less coats and more dresses that happen to be outerwear.

The silhouette is stunning... a 50s hour glass shape, don't you think?

This coat is more structured, but the suede, the buttons...everything is genius.

The evening wear is truly stunning...

Glitter & Sequins

The use of black in the collection is outlines the figure in formfitting skirts and pants. Great for the office or the city streets. 

The black dresses are very reminiscent of France...perfect for sitting in a cafe with a cigarette and a copy of War and Peace.

Last but not least are the shoes. I love the materials: python and leather. That's a whole lotta skin. 

Let's not forget a Mary-Jane strap...

Or a satin Victorian bow, for that matter.

And that, my friends, is the Ralph Lauren Fall Collection.
