Gulf Weekly Jalal’s timely tips on the latest trends

Ralph Lauren’s Purple Label is celebrating its 25th anniversary by creating fabulous fall looks reimagined from its iconic styles.

Its autumn 2020 collection is impeccably crafted from exclusive Italian fabrics with a dedication to the finest details that have been the hallmark by the brand since its founding.

The 25th anniversary assortment is headlined by a reissued capsule of tailored looks from the 90’s inspired by Ralph’s personal suitings and his love of sartorial English tailoring.

These pieces feature his signature suit silhouette that is strong, broad shouldered with wide lapels balanced by a contoured waist, shorter length, and lower button stance. The new Ralph suits are recreated in the original English fabrics and patterns, hand-picked and styled by the American fashion designer himself exactly the way he would wear them. They include pattern-on-pattern combinations of classic chalk-stripes, hounds-tooth checks, glen plaids and a range of sophisticated heathers and solid blacks.

Ralph has always believed in the art of fine tailoring and it shows. He said: “Before I started my own company I had my suits custom- made. I wanted the fit and construction to have the integrity of old-world craftsmanship yet remain soft and supple, natural and comfortable.

“For Purple Label’s 25th anniversary, I wanted to recreate that tailored style I’ve always believed in – from the cut of the suit and the original fabrics, to the mix of patterns in the shirt, the tie and other accessories. Purple Label to me is more than just beautiful clothing; it reflects the personal style of the wearer and a way of living inspired by timeless quality.”
