The Ralph Lauren catwalk is one of the first A/W 2012 collections that caught my eye this fashion season mainly as it is supposedly inspired by Downton Abbey. What could be better than that?
The collection is full of Edwardian influences with well tailored tweed suits, flat caps, taxidermy bird brooches and fair isle sweaters. I can't help, but also spot the twenties influence in this entire range of looks...less flapper girl, more Boardwalk Empire? What do you think?
Ralph Lauren's 2012 collection is bowler hat heavy and possibly only perfect for the Boxing day hunt or a casino robbery, but I am glad someone covered an alternative look for the less ladylike lady. Twenties fashion is going to be a huge influence on fashion this year, but what look will you be going for?
