Ralph Lauren Spring 2018 - Runway Review

The idea of a great escape is always a welcome notion. For Ralph Lauren, it's a way of life. The designer transported his happy place -- Jamaica, with its sandy white beaches and gorgeous mountains -- to Manhattan for his spring see-now-buy-now collection. The mise-en-scène set the mood with its ripping blue waters visible from behind the white blinds and casually elegant cabana furniture.

Lauren's models reflected the designer's mood as well (translation: out-of-office). They walked out barefoot dressed in sun-bleached batik and woodblock-print summer dresses clutching woven baskets and canvas totes. But for as tropical as the vibe was there were plenty of classic yacht club-meets-Hyannisport references as well. Nautical tropes abound, ushering in a preppy aesthetic that has built the Lauren name: Bermuda shorts, double-breasted navy blazers with gold buttons and anoraks covered in prints a nod to the French Riviera.

And while everyday day clothes were not the primary direction of this collection, there were certainly plenty of attractive black-tie alternatives for that sporty-cum-red-carpet moment. The sweeping primary-color evening gowns were fantastic.
