In the last few seasons Ralph Lauren has traveled to the Far East and the American West. Yesterday he traveled back in time to a Gatsby-esque ’20s.
Models channeled Daisy Buchanan in flowy menswear-inspired wide leg trousers paired with ruffle front silk blouses and dainty cashmere cardigans, silk chiffon dresses and floral print skirts–every looked capped off with a cloche hat. The first set of looks were in an Easter egg basket palate of, according to the line sheets, “daffodil,” “robin’s egg blue,” “celadon,” and “blush.” (A quick question here–Ralph Lauren opened with a hole ridden sweater that looked moth ball eaten–Kors showed “distressed cashmere”–what gives guys?)
The Easter parade gave way to a series of all-white looks, glammed up by luxe ostrich feather capes and collars. But the show stoppers were undeniably the evening wear that closed the show–a modern Daisy needs something to wear to all those parties! And so does Olivia Wilde, evidently, who was sitting front row. Which is just as well because she would look stunning in any of the gorgeous silver and ivory beaded gowns that closed the show.
