The Polo Ralph Lauren Women’s Fall 2016 Collection makes a directional seasonal statement with its special mix of iconic heritage and modern irreverence.
The sophisticated collection is presented with a lighthearted touch and a lively spirit. There’s a youthful and sexy edge to Polo’s signature chic styling that appeals to a life that jumps between city to country, morning to night —and the Polo muse loves a surprise that shakes it all up.
Polo is offering softer interpretations of signature silhouettes, and seamlessly adding the fashion details and luxe fabrics that make the collection fresh and exciting.
“The Polo girl is a fashion girl. Her clothes are cool and sophisticated, with an eclectic styling that is unexpected and individual. It’s a confident look, beyond trend: modern, elevated and quintessentially Polo,” said Ralph Lauren.
The palette for the season is pure—gray, caramel and black—with touches of subtle metallic for a hint of rock ‘n’ roll. A muted silver-sequin shift is paired with a cocooning chunky sweater-jacket, and a silver leather fringe jacket is the perfect unexpected partner to the sleek black dress worn underneath.
A suede shift topped with a tweed coat exemplifies that softer silhouette carried through the collection, and a sheer silk tunic drapes over super slim metallic moto pants to show off the new proportions. Unconstructed jackets and sweater-style outerwear embrace the ease so important to the Polo girl.
The menswear influence that is at the heart of Polo is romanced for a woman with the confidence that comes with a black suspender-style cocktail dress. Haberdashery-style tailoring is seen in a cropped pinstripe three-piece suit and a tobacco-colored stretch suede jacket and high-waisted trousers with a flared leg.
Polo Sport is a new introduction, completing the interesting and animated lifestyle of the brand, with ultra-chic, fully functional fashion from gym to street and beyond. Advance technical elements, including cooling fabrics and reflective finishes, complement luxurious après-sport pieces, such as a shearling pullover and sporty cashmere joggers, to offer ultimate versatility and all-day wear.
The Polo Ralph Lauren Men’s 2016 Collection celebrates the essence of Polo: iconic pieces that reflect the wearer’s full, expansive lifestyle – and his impeccable taste.
This season’s top looks show the breadth of the brand that spans gentleman’s haberdashery to an adventurer’s outfitter. The offerings show a depth of modernity, understated ease, rugged mixed with refined, and a signature sense of cool. There is a thorough recognition of the art of dressing.
“What’s exciting to me right now is the look of new traditionalism. It’s an authentic way of dressing with an individual, counter-culture style that is the foundation of my Polo brand. It’s cool and confident— dressed-up without losing its ease and originality,” Ralph Lauren said.
The collection’s looks are grounded in tonal shades of navy, olive and grey as vintage favorites and unearthed treasures join with new contemporary classics through new fits and fabric treatments, unique finishes and dynamic styling.
The important suiting includes narrower silhouettes, softer shoulders, and a modern versatility that comes with iconic tweed, plaid and herringbone jackets innovatively crafted as deconstructed and unlined. A further polished look comes from ties in traditional Polo prints and patterns, special details such as leather buttons, bellow pockets and suede trim on sleeves and under-collars – topped by the ultimate gentlemanly double-breasted overcoat.
A featherweight three-piece suede suit stands with versions in faded denim and heritage cord, and fine tailored elements are paired with dark, refined denim jeans. The classic sartorial sportcoat has been spun into a new instant icon: a sweaterlike, unconstructed jacket, perfect for the on-the-go guy.
Fair Isle sweaters are treated with incredible designs and colors, chunky sculpted sweaters and luxurious cable cashmeres highlight the quality of craft inherent to Polo. Signature washed-plaid shirts enjoy a renaissance in traditional sporting hues.
Surplus-inspired chinos evoke a laid-back life outdoors, while new dark-washed super-slim jeans fit the dressed-down workday and weekend in the city. Joggers are paired with jackets for downtown edge. Pants are lighter and with stretch for comfort.
Answering the demand for true performance and masculine style, outerwear ranges from moto jackets in burnished leather to a year-round Canadian combat jacket with removable lining.
Polo Sport enhances its technical focus with full revved-up outfitting, including a running jacket with a reflective camouflage pattern and pullover hoodie with a cold-weather running mask, as well as offering the most luxurious après-sport cashmere sweaters and pants, and shearling jackets.
