Ralph Lauren Purple Label Fall 2016 Milan Presentation
The Ralph Lauren Purple Label Collection makes a strong statement for Fall 2016 in its creative innovation and dynamic styling that touches the many lifestyle elements of its discerning globally-minded gentleman.
In the world of haberdashery, Purple Label explores some softer silhouettes – shirt jackets in unlined jersey and suede, cashmere top coats and suits inspired by shirting fabrics – while maintaining the brand’s exquisite tailoring. Other new pieces include soft-collar dress shirts and richly textured sweaters.
Ralph Lauren enhances its interpretation of sportswear with printed and textured lightweight suits, sweaters, trousers and ties. The key sportswear pieces are paired back to the haberdashery pieces for a chic and handsome elegance.
Outerwear makes a strong statement with shearling coats, suede jackets with shearling lining and burnished leather pieces with stitch details. A luxurious spin on a signature Purple Label look is the new cowhide trucker jacket.
To complement the rugged style of the outerwear there are cashmere and moleskin separates in a strong palette of winter white.
The collection also further explores the intersection of fine, luxurious clothing and technical pieces. The dashing winter outdoorsman is presented options ranging from base layering pieces and sleek ski pants, to a tailored suit in black ski-tech fabric. The performance apparel brings the best of advanced Recco Avalanche location technology together with the finest waterproof wools.
Fall 2016 marks the introduction of a capsule of bespoke fully functional ski equipment including double steel-edge downhill skis that are designed for all-mountain terrain and ski poles with a special touch of stitching that mimics the signature Ralph Lauren Ricky Bag. The one-of-a-kind racing helmet has a built-in visor with adjustable mechanics, including custom-made ear flaps and a leather strap with a reflective shield.
