Imagine a Fall 2013 fashion show, taking place at a fabulous stable, with celebrities and their children watching equestrian inspired looks mixed in with vibrant pops of color. It sounds like a dream but really it was Ralph Lauren RL Girls fashion show for Fall 2013. Wolffer Estate Stables in Sagaponack, NY provided the perfect setting for Ralph Lauren to combine my two favorite things: riding and fashion.
The long runway was through the stable and guests sat on hay bales lined with saddle pads. The show opened with a traditional riding outfit complete with garters and a colorful show ribbon pinned to the jacket.
It featured equestrian looks with jodhpurs, velvet riding helmets, and boots all combined with school blazers which is classic Ralph Lauren. The orange trench coat was a hit that captured the theme for this colorful collection.
The Ralph Lauren designs had plenty of tweed, herringbone, and velvet mixed in with bright color which adds the perfect twist for a modern girls wardrobe.
My favorite looks are timeless velvet blazers with added touches of silk bows or leopard flats.
The red riding coat with the velvet collar and black beret is something that I would love to ride in or wear out with my friends. The Hunter/Jumper world could come alive with these added touches of color!
The closing outfit was a black velvet jacket and purple silk skirt topped off by a top hat and an adorable Burnese Mountain Dog puppy. The collection took my world of riding and wrapped it up in the elegance of silk and velvet fabrics. Ralph Lauren’s “vision” has always been about capturing classic American style which includes the traditions of the equestrian world. My dreams just became a modern day reality thanks to his creative team for producing such a remarkable show.
Afterwards, young guests were treated to Essie manicures, hair braiding stations, and treats from Dylan’s Candy Bar which is Ralph Lauren’s daughter’s company. This event really pulled out all the stops when it comes to what girls like: fashion, horses, spa day, and candy!!! I think Birthday parties have just taken on a “new” theme for this year.
