Ralph Lauren Spring '12


Surprise, surprise...I can't help but be attracted to pretty things. And retro things. Put that together and a pretty heavy obsession grows. That's how I feel about the Ralph Lauren Spring '12 collection. After reading the review on Style.com I learned that Ralph Lauren was responsible for designing the costumes for the original version of The Great Gatsby and it all made so much sense. A perfect 20's inspired collection by the costumer of the quintessential Jazz Age movie.

Love the pretty, feminine looks! BTW - So cool that you were an ice skater! I was Michelle Kwan's stylist (off the ice) for many many years - and Amber Corwin was my assistant for a few years after she stopped ice skating. Small world! Ice skater girls are just cool!

Ashley said...

Oh, I need all of this. The Great Gatsby is my favorite book, and although I've never even seen the original movie, I already have a feeling I'd love all the outfits in it. Do you know who's designing the outfits for the new movie?

If I could ever possibly save up enough money for this collection, I so would. That green, flowy dress is on the top of my wish list.

Lissie said...

I also fall in love with that collection! It is so beautiful! Gucci has also got som 1920's inspirarion in their s/s 2012 collection! And that is great!
