This morning I had the absolute pleasure of attending the Ralph Lauren Spring 2012 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York and I still have chills. If there were a way I could have stayed in the world that Ralph Lauren has created for spring, I would do it in a heartbeat. The word amazing does not do the collection justice; it was nothing short of magical.

Many people expect polo shirts and preppiness when we think of Ralph Lauren, but there is a completely different side to this mastermind. I, for one, not only fell in love with his clothing collection today but also his accessories. Yesterday I was able to view the accessories collection before it hit the runway, which gave me a good idea of what was to come.

Picture a crisp romantic setting, with warm lights flanking either side of the runway and a big dose of the 20’s and you just might feel what the setting was today. The clothing and accessories were the epitome of elegance and femininity. We saw feathers galore, toned-down pastel hues and beading everywhere.

The collection told us a story and it was a story that I deeply desire to plunge into head first and never leave. So thank you, Ralph Lauren, for closing my first full Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York on the highest note possible. [images via WWD]

    Gotta love RL. Not a fan of everything here, but he’s the most prolific designer out there. Many of his designs are gorgeous and elegant. There is something for everyone.

    This collection is quite interesting. I like the cool tones and 20s influence, but probably not enough to buy into it.
