Guys, this is a VERY SPECIFIC STYLE that can potentially look very cool and retro, but only if you do it right. Also, I feel like it’s a look that doesn’t go very well with a skinny model’s frame? 1930s/’40s riding breeches can look great if they’re buttoned at the calves and are tightly fitted around the waist and hips, but if they’re remotely un-shaped around the lower leg and are worn by someone with a very thin frame, you tend to get the effect of a recently-deflated balloon with a stick rattling around inside it. On the whole I don’t think most women are likely to be in favour of an item of clothing that emphasises the hips and upper thighs anyway, so it’s kind of important for it to fit correctly in the first place. — Hello, Tailor: New York Fashion Week, Spring 2013 — Proenza Schouler, Ralph Lauren, and more.
Have I mentioned how much I want to be fem in argyle and tweed
I want these outfits so much
I’m going to get all of this for Ms Jess. With the possible exception of the shoes.
…This post had me at “argyle”. Take me now.
Oh good, looks like my penchant for mixing stripes, tartan, argyle, checks, camo, and spots might be coming in fashion. Time to bust out the preppy punk look again.
Ralph Lauren Fall 2012 = my ultimate Always Reblog.
I was going to say something snide about @bookshop’s “reblogging for Gav” tag there, like, uh, hello, obviously I’ve seen these already, puh-lease, but then realised that this point is obviously moot since I am reblogging them anyway forever and ever because DOWNTON ABBEY TWEED LADYSUITS AND CLOTH CAPS YES CONTINUE BY ALL MEANS.
oh god oh god reblogging everything
This Ralph Lauren collection = my ladydrag faux Downton Abbey soulmate.
“There was something about this three-piece suit that screamed Ralph Lauren, to me. After a moment, I realised that it was the fabric, which reminded me of this Ralph Lauren Purple Label ad from (I think?) 2009. Am I concerned that this level of fashion pattern-recognition is eventually going to take over my brain and fill up all my memory space with clothing and costume knowledge to the detriment of everything else? (Answer: yes.)” — from Ralph Lauren Fall 2012, at Hello, Tailor.
“Ralph Lauren isn’t one of those labels I get pre-emptively excited over, unlike Mary Katrantzou, Alexander McQueen, Haider Ackerman, or Gareth Pugh. However, I’ve come to realise that every season, Lauren turns out the largest number of “conventional” outfits that I unequivocably adore. None of what we’re looking at today is a product of groundbreaking design experimentation, but instead is the result of years of detail-work and attention to the ultimate goal of creating perfect tailoring for extremely rich people who want to look stylish and adult without making a statement.” — from Ralph Lauren Fall 2012, at Hello, Tailor.
“This was one of those situations where objective criticism falls by the wayside. I love early 20th Century suits, especially on women; I love knee-length trousers; I love Downton Abbey and continue to masochistically watch it despite the fact that I spend most of each episode shouting obscenities at Julian Fellowes’ soap-opera hack style of screenwriting.” — from Ralph Lauren Fall 2012, at Hello, Tailor.
“As someone on twitter put it, this is like looking into my brain. Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2012 show was heavily influenced by pre-war British menswear, included multiple flavours of tweed, and was soundtracked by the Downton Abbey theme music. At least half the collection was made up of Edwardian/1920s trouser suits for ladies, about which I could not be happier.” — from Ralph Lauren Fall 2012, at Hello, Tailor.
Ralph Lauren, Fall 2011/2012. My favourite dress of all time.
