NYFW | Long Island's North Shore by Ralph Lauren

New York Fashion Week - Fast-forward nearly 40 years, when, after various returns to that time and place, Lauren's eye is fixed once again on the gilded mansions of Long Island's North Shore. Ralph Lauren's Spring 2012 collection is an homage to the world he helped create so indelibly all those years ago, with a gentle, romantic, yet moneyed look: ruffled georgette blouses; slithery, slippery bias-cut dresses: charmeuse wide pants so light and fluid they were like lingerie in trouser form ...

 ... the cross-body purse wittily reinterpreted as a bag that looked like a fringed silk shawl; and strappy pearl python sandals on metallic high heels that evoked Chrysler Building at a time when it was still only a twinkle in the eye of its architect, William Van Alen, and not twinkling on the Manhatten skyline.

Romantic haute couture. Elegance & femininty is the theme. My fave are softly draped, floral printed chiffon long dresses.They look so pretty. Also, silk fabric creates an aura of glamorous sheen. Uber chic styling & concept
