Spring 2014 was all about the ’60s for Ralph Lauren, with all of its Mod chicness and clean lines. With a collection split between the classic color palette of black and white and electric shocks of color, the designs were aligned with Lauren’s sportswear aesthetic, while still providing functionality and a stylish flair for the fashionable set.
Knee-high socks, mary jane pumps, and feminine details including popular peplum kicked off the show in black and white.
Skirt suits were always a look that I deemed outdated, but Lauren made a good case for them here, running the gamut of the color spectrum. Styling was kept simple and chic, letting the designs serve as a great foundation for the modern day woman’s wardrobe.
The red carpet selections were plentiful and fans including Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Taylor Swift will surely get first dibs on the collection’s gowns. A strapless cobalt number with a ruffled hem on Karlie Kloss was perfect in its simplicity, while a white flower-emblazoned design might be worn by one of next year’s high-fashion brides.
