Ralph Lauren celebrates his Spring 2022 Women’s Collection with a new campaign shot on the picturesque beaches of Mexico. The campaign evokes a spirit of adventure that is quintessential to Ralph Lauren’s design aesthetic, and embraces the youthful optimism expressed through the Collection’s eclectic yet effortless mix of bold colors, patterns, and textures.
The Spring 2022 Collection melds a bohemian spirit with the chic and classic sensibility of Ralph Lauren. Soft, fluid dressing reflects the ease of the Collection, and draws on the romantic allure of a tropical vacation when met with hand-painting techniques, intricate threadwork, beading, and fringe. Ikat-inspired patterns bring a fresh flair to classic shirting, dresses, and even a tailcoat and cummerbund; making a bold statement when paired back to contrasting patterns of pinstripes and plaids. Mr. Lauren’s love of warm-weather beach wear, specifically the sarong, served as an inspiration for dresses and jumpsuits that are elegant for evening while maintaining a breezy, lightweight feel.
Introduced as a new line of Ralph Lauren Icons with the Fall 2021 Collection, The Welington Accessory Collection returns for Spring with new seasonal iterations that underscore the vibrant essence of the season. The Welington Shoulder Bag and Crossbody Bag compliment the ready to wear in seasonal iterations of Ikat-inspired prints on silk, and woven styles handcrafted in both a classic straw with calfskin trim, as well as a woven metallic calfskin. Refreshed renditions of Ralph Lauren’s Ricky and RL50 handbags appear throughout, with the addition of a new Basket Bag that is handwoven in Morocco and features hardware and trim details reminiscent of the iconic RL50 Handbag. Layered necklaces and earrings made of natural textures such as hand cut marble and leather are a nod to the tradition of gathering seashells and creating pieces that can be worn day or night.
