Vogue describes Ralph Lauren Purple Label as “the apex of American sartorial finery”. Creative director John Wrazej dipped into the archives for an equestrian theme, which has always been dear to the brand but less used in past collections. So a navy duffle coat had stirrups and bits on the sleeves and a pair of jeans were given the same treatment, while a zipped suede jacket had themed decorations on the hems and sleeves. Yet the collection was not entirely focused on horse-riding; there was a series of single and double-breasted velvet or wool suits and some ski outfits with down jackets and high-necked jumpers. The evening looks included a purple dinner suit and a tartan jacket or trousers.
