This week's designer in focus: Ralph Lauren

This week's designer in focus is American designer, Ralph Lauren. Ralph Lauren began designing for men only, back as early as 1968 and worked for his own label, Polo Fashions. Ralph Lauren later branched into women's fashion and is wasn't until much later that Polo fashions became a public company in 1997, trading as Polo Ralph Lauren, as it is known today.


Ralph Lauren have several labels, so for those of you new to this designer, it can be a little bit overwhelming. I will share three of my preferred labels with you.

The Blue Label collection is perhaps the more affordable of the ranges. The label is renowned for the famous multi-coloured polo shirts, sporting the famous polo player in contrasting colours. The Blue Label collection is my go-to label for classic pieces, especially classic button-down shirts, which I wear to work.


The Black Label Collection is my favourite label for special pieces to be worn after five. In particular, I am a huge fan of the cashmere from this collection. It is exquisite.

  
Last of all, the "creme de la creme" of Ralph Lauren is the Purple Label or as it is more recently referred to as the Ralph Lauren Collection, which offers evening wear in the most sumptuous of fabrics. These garments are to die for.



I have to say Ralph Lauren is still high on my list of preferred designers as the garments do stand the test of time, are sophisticated and classic, three vital components of having a wearable, workable closet. 

Until next time, 
stay stylish!

Yours in style,

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango! The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt!  For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette. Check out

Ballistic for Bally

I have always loved Bally , especially their shoes. They're made with the softest, luxurious leather I have ever worn. Bally were my first ever pair of high end designer shoes and they fit like a glove. So this post is going to be dedicated to one of the most prestigious design houses and their amazingly comfortable, chic shoes.  Here's some of my favourites from Bally's new S/S '12 collection: Which is your favourite? I love the classic black Otty-Crest pump and the teal and navy Palda wedge sandals. Have a great week! Mine will be an interesting one. I finish teaching for the term this coming Wednesday and go on a staff retreat to Creswick for the rest of the week. I'm looking forward to breathing in the crisp, clean country air!

2020-The Year of Surprises

A couple of years back, I was so disappointed to discover that the beautiful Ralph Lauren Boutique in Collins Street, Melbourne, was closing its doors. Unfortunately for me,  it was actually closing permanently. I loved shopping at Ralph Lauren because they were the only store in Melbourne to carry the high-end Ralph Lauren Collection , otherwise known as Purple Label. So began the search for a store in Australia. Unfortunately, there was no good news, after several phone calls and emails to and fro from customer service. My absolute favourite label, the Ralph Lauren Collection, would sadly become a distant, fading memory.  Fast track forward to 2020-the year of surprises; a year proven to be vastly different and challenging, for many reasons which need no mention,  I found out some very exciting news which was like absolute music to my ears! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available in Australia! Ralph Lauren Collection is now available at Chatswood Chase, New South Wales. Perhaps it w
