[A bit delayed, but nonetheless...]
It was an exciting day at the Ralph Lauren offices when the announcement was finally made public that Ralph Lauren will show his Men's Spring 2009 Purple and Black Label Collections next week in Paris.
DNR broke the news on June 12 and confirmed that Ralph has secured a spot on the last (and most anticipated) day of Paris Men's Fashion Week. This is a big move for the RL clan, showing the collections abroad earlier than in years past, usually during late summer in New York. Other big players showing the same week include Lanvin, Dior Homme, Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Paul Smith, among others. Let the games begin....
The major move won't disappoint. Perhaps someone typing this post has seen a sneak peak of the looks for Spring and they are looking very promising. Can't give anything away until the pictures surface next week, but Ralph is coming on strong with the best of the best from Purple Label and is reinventing the modern young man with Black Label.
It's crazy to be thinking about next Spring already as Fall has yet to hit stores. But, not to worry, Fall is on the way (despite scorching temperatures across the country) and will be delivering classic Fall pieces per usual. An entry is in the works as to how to build the perfect Fall wardrobe, complete with pictures and cool tips, etc. Be on the lookout for that one coming closer to the cool weather.
