Ralph Lauren 2017 Collection: See Now Buy Now at Neiman Marcus Troy

Straight from the runway into your wardrobe

By Rachel Schostak

The Ralph Lauren brand represents classic “Americana.” Ralph Lauren launched his men’s collection in 1961 and designed his first women’s collection in 1972. Ralph Lauren has always stayed true to his roots yet it has evolved into a beautiful global brand.  I recently read a quote in WWD where he said, “You can’t be 50 years old in fashion and not have changed and moved and led the times. I believe in that. I don’t believe in revolution.”

In 2016, Ralph Lauren was one of the pioneers of the “See Now Buy Now” movement on the fashion week runway (This movement is about showing pieces that are available to purchase in stores or online immediately following the show). This was a huge success for the brand. So, of course, this year he did it again. Instead of showing his Fall 2017 collection at NYFW, he created a capsule “February 2017 Collection” that works for resort, transitional pieces from winter to spring and, quite frankly, all year long.

His show was fabulous (besides the fact that iconic models of all ages walked the show, from Carolyn Murphy to Kendall Jenner). The collection is inspired by the “nomad woman,” a woman who can can take pieces from this collection with her on safari or to a black-tie affair.

Locally, Neiman Marcus at Somerset Mall in Troy has some of the collection pieces from the runway and all are available to order.

I watched the runway show and then was able to view the pieces in store with Pamela Maenza, Retail Development Manager at Ralph Lauren during their trunk show event at Neiman Marcus. Below are my style notes and favorite items available to shop from Neiman’s.

My February 2017 Collection was inspired by a nomadic spirit, an exotic sophistication contrasting pure shapes with rustic textures, burnished golds, shades of the desert, and artful, one-of-a-kind jewelry. It embodies the spirit of the woman I design for, always seeking a style that is bold and personal.”   – Ralph Lauren
