For Fall 2011, Ralph Lauren brought in a little East to mix in with his signature Western sartorial spirit. Kimono-style dresses, Chinoiserie smoking jackets, and embroidered wraps and coats were all accented by jade and crimson jewelry, and the slick red, green, and jet black palette underscored the Far East theme. Yet, that wasn’t the only inspiration; Paris (perhaps by way of Shanghai) slipped in via an Art Deco-esque dress and felted cloche combo, and with a sexy pin-striped suit topped off with an opulent fur stole. To see all the playfully seductive ensembles, watch our runway coverage now!
