Ralph Lauren Spring Summer 2012

I know that Ralph Lauren is not out to surprise, he does the same classics every season and it works for him as a business. This season, those classics included far too many shiny, cheap-looking satins, hideous cloche hats, and a few ugly gangster-style suits. The models looked pretty unattractive in this show, so where does that leave the normal person? I was not impressed.

I love…

luxury brands doing ripped clothing. First Michael Kors, and now this. Thanks, but I will rip my own clothes. And not on purpose..

    I actually like the blue suit a lot. It is feminine and masculine at the same time, smart and casual, classical and creative.  And cute.
