Take a look into the future: Fall 2018, to be exact, according to our fashion futurist Lance Avery Morgan…
From velvet, tartan plaid to faded denim and beyond, when Ralph Lauren showed his eponymous Purple Label collection recently at the Men’s Milan collections in Via San Barnaba (the company’s palatial palazzo) there was something for everyone.
In fact, it was a plethora of slim pants, broad lapels and suits for any updated preppie taste.
With the velvet dinner jackets and tuxedos for formal wear section, there were inventive combinations like the pleated shirt and bow tie and a stone-studded Western belt and even, a sweater embroidered with a portrait of Lauren’s silhouette with his iconic ranch look.
We don’t have a crystal ball about what’s happening next, yet we at ModXMan know that the gala circuit will be well-dressed in the fall due to Lauren’s unerring point of view from his long and storied career.
