Since our Ralph Lauren Purple Label coverage provoked some food for thought for most, I thought I would also post a few pictures of the Polo Ralph Lauren Fall 2012 collection. The general trend in suits is an extremely close fit, not only in the shoulders but also in the waist, the seat and the legs. which, on a separate note were also very short. As one reader remarked, this style direction is mostly appealing to young people who are increasingly exchanging their t-shirts for suits. While I do not like this tight silhouette, I am more than happy to see that people buy it who formerly would not have been interested in dressing up.
What do you think about this? Why are teenagers or those in their early 20’s more attracted by a tight fit rather than a wider, more classic and timeless cut? Do they only wanted to distinguish themselves from their fathers and grandfathers or is there more to it?
Apart from that, fair isle sweaters seem to be omnipresent, just like scarves. Do you own and wear fair isle sweaters, or are the samples here too colorful for your taste? I look forward to your comments below!
In any case, I hope you enjoy the pictures.
