    And they really want to make RL relevant, fresh and young again...with these clothes?? Go figure...

    The collection feels very "Burda fashion patterns" circa 1995.
    The first look brings to my mind the dancing scene from the movie "Philadelphia" (the whole collection is as sad as the film):

    I love a brand sticking to their vision, which does not try to please the millenials, which shows glamour, luxury and some Dynasty realness, which creates clothes without any racist references.

    Let's enjoy a bit, instead of constantly complaining. RL, Tom Ford, etc are not LV or Gucci and don't try to live through hype. They have their own world and clientele.

    I am so sick of clothes which have no sense in a wardrobe and seemed to have been created only to fulfill designer's egos (Louis Vuitton Pre fall is a pure example of IDGAF about who is gonna wear that).

    I can´t enjoy this, I find this boring. I have seen this kind of clothes millions of times, in different brands, different seasons, different years, and different decades!

    Why not complaining? Why being so conformist? Should we have to eat anything that an establishment brand give us, without any kind of critical spirit at all?

    I don´t like Gucci nor LV hype collections either. It is not a question of using marketing to please Millennials, it is a question of why we have to revere to the same old boring clothes over and over again, just because they are coming from a certain status brand.

    Dynasty realness was perfect for the 80s...but we are in 2019. And I am sick to death to see collections so stuck in the past like this one.

    Every season im amazed with how the audience of RL shows looks so much happy to be there, like the clothes were REALLY that interesting. Congratulations to him to keep his cult alive for so many years.

    I never feel like RL should be a brand that I HAVE to keep it up, its not appealing to me, but this is just a matter of taste IMO, doesn't mean that I can not appreciate his work. He already proved himself as designer, so if he wanna keep it low-key, not bringing nothing new and just make his clientele happy, so be it, he is allowed to it.

    It obviously is not my taste either. But I find funny to find this kind of clothes, when they were so worried that the brand was losing appeal with the youth segment.

    Of course he can make whatever he wants. But that does not mean I am going to appreciate his work, just because he is an iconic american designer and yadda, yadda, yadda.

    I am an iconoclast. Can´t help it.

    I liked watching the show. Everybody is rich, everybody is beautiful, everybody has perfect teeth...
    The presentation was very fancy, very « American » even if the theme seemed to be Parisian.

    As for the clothes, they works with the environment and are good because the girls looks beautiful. It was very costumey sometimes and borderline kitsch (gold cape) and while it’s totally aspirational in a way, i wouldn’t want to be that Ralph Lauren woman.

    Tom Ford was tumultuous but it felt real...The Ralph Lauren woman clearly lives in a ivory tower.

    Beautiful palazzo pants tho.

    Now that you mentioned it, I can totally imagine Melania Trump sitting in the front row at this show, clapping like mad...

    Loved the nautical intro and wished they built more around that because the rest of the looks went downhill fast. The entire thing looks to me like a Home Shopping Network effort. The clothing along with the setting. The belts I've seen at Kors so there was no need for that again, and there's just nothing worthy of mention, which is almost always the case with a RL collection.

    I don't mind brands who stick to please their core clientele, but if you still want to be part of the industry, there's almost a responsibility to innovative. Otherwise just stay in your corner and churn out strapless evening dresses.

    The floral prints were ugly.

    However, I did love the abundance of gold, this being my favorite look;

    I actually enjoyed it, he always pleases his core client who is the super wealthy all American woman. Its a classic brand and they are good at that without looking like fossils.

    i'm not the target audience but can appreciate that this looks good for what it is and who will wear it. probably something apt about american designers in that statement, ha.

    I feel the exact opposite. I can see Melania Trump front row at Tom's show, reliving the fantasy of the successful sexpot that she never was when she actually was "modelling".

    :D I doubt she will be invited to Tom´s show...when she became First Lady, he claimed he had no interest in dressing a glorified escort! (this was hilarious!).

    Oh, I KNOW she wouldn't be invited to his show. Tom probably instructed his sales staff to re-enact that "Pretty Woman" scene if Melania ever stepped foot in his NYC boutique. ("How much is it, Marie?" "It's very expensive.")

    I do like this collection. It's clean. It's pretty. It's not trying to be something that it's not ("Japanese street-styles, mixed with haute couture silhouettes, from the sixties!"). He's not reinventing the wheel with this collection, so for that alone, I can respect this.

    What's not to love? A classic Ralph Lauren collection, filled with beautiful and timeless pieces. I think everything's beautiful, very luxe and absolutely love the black, white and metallic colour pallette. Not to mention the setting of the flagship Madison Avenue store (quintessential old school NYFW).

    Gold overkill and a meh collection at best.
    However, it was a great cast and the models/guests looked like they were having a good time so that was nice.
