Spring with Ralph

it's gonna be beautiful

note the beautiful sleeve detail

my favorite Spring 2012 Ralph Lauren looks
to see all  please click here  to see large photographs of each look. 

I hadn't remembered that Ralph Lauren designed the costumes for
The Great Gatsby
in 1974,
until I saw this collection, which plainly states his love affair with
the era once again. 

He's not designing the costumes this time around,
and I think the production has made a tragic mistake...just saying.

the luxe fabrics in this collection, like silk satin, panne velvet, floral printed silk chiffons,
marabou feathers, + opulent details like feather earrings dangling, 
long long thin roping necklaces
+ beautiful lace-wrapped heads, flapper-like caps other words, all of it.

Marc Jacobs disappointed
So did Chado Ralph Rucci

Donna Karan shone brightly,
as did The Row
& Oscar

more jewelry & reviews to come...

big huge welcome to my new followers,
all of my readers know just how much I care for each of you...

I love Ralph Lauren, I have never ever seen a bad collection. I beleive that he designs for all, real women. And I think many of his lines are accessable to all, maybe not the crock handbag for $12,000 but many others.

Beautiful post!

They are all so beautiful, but I am swooning over the gown with the sleeve detail. If only.
