Ralph Lauren’s Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear Collection is inspired by English fashion circa World War I. The fact that the soundtrack from Downton Abbey
played when this collection was debuted on the runway should put any doubt to rest. Lauren’s latest line for autumn consists mostly of feminine menswear with a contrasting— but welcome— addition of black and gold evening gowns for after dark. Overall, the collection represents a distinctive style that clearly transcends time.
