Ralph Lauren split his collection more or less evenly between black and white looks and bold, saturated monochrome ones.
A menswear and schoolgirl theme pervaded much of the first half of the collection, which included a black longsleeve dress with a contrasting white collar, plenty of ties and knee socks, and a variety of black and white knits and blazers. A 60s influence was also prevalent, namely in printed shifts that came with coordinating accessories.
As for the brights, the designer let his cuts and color choice do most of the talking as, for the part, he eschewed surface embellishments. Among the standouts were a bright orange drop waist gown and a duo of mod skirt suits.
