Ralph Goes Downton

Ralph Lauren's Fall 2012 Ready to Wear Collection was an ode to Downton Abbey including the use of the show's theme song to introduce the models. After all, if anyone was going to evoke the mega British hit it had to be Lauren. No one does the fantasy version of British country living quite like he does. As usual the clothes were classy and lovely, blending Edwardian and flapper styles into a modern look.

And what's not to love? Pinstripes and plaids, cloches and bowlers, tweed jackets with wool vests and ties, and even top hats! I want it all. I was especially taken with the trousers and jackets but the gold gown was absolutely stunning. Well done Mr. Lauren.
