Ralph Lauren’s Collection At NYFW Is Everything We Aspire Our Wardrobes To Be

Wow, wow, wow….And just like that, our hearts literally skipped a beat when we saw Bella Hadid in this amazing metallic gold pleated dress. Courtesy of Ralph Lauren, this stunning piece (which may we add would be absolutely perfect for party season), made it’s debut at New York Fashion Week. Held at the Ralph Lauren Madison Avenue boutique which was converted into “Ralph’s Coffee Shop”, unlike other designers during fashion week whom are presenting what they think we should be wearing this autumn/winter, Ralph Lauren gave us a beautiful collection for Spring/Summer’19. Dominated by gold and black, with sprinkles of white and florals (because it wouldn’t be a spring presentation without florals), the collection was the epitome of elegance and sophistication. Best of all, it’s available to shop right now, but sadly we can’t seem to find the dress in question *sigh*. We shall keep you posted! [Images]

Ralph Lauren Blue Label goes neutral for summer

Nude is back, people! Ok it never really went away to begin with, but we’d like to confirm that it’s bigger and better than ever before! And before readers of a prudish disposition stop in their tracks and recoil in horror, we’d like to point out that we are in fact talking about the colour – or lack thereof – as opposed to the state of undress. Reading resumes here… We don’t just have Kate Middleton and her love of a nude pump to thank for the emerging neutral trend – although she has played quite a substantial part in bringing it back on people’s radars. Ralph Lauren is just one of many designers who is bringing natural shades back on our style agenda; and this time he’s making sure that everyone’s paying attention. Sure we love a bright, bold summer hue for getting attention on the beach or at the cocktail bar, or a cute pastel colour combo for those light springtime evenings, but neutral is really standing out the most for us at the moment. And you only have to take a look at the latest Ralph Lauren collection to see what we mean. Going for nude is by no means a cop out; the textures, prints and patterns in the Ralph Lauren Blue Label collection alone are proof that nude is the furthest thing from dull and boring imaginable. The latest collection was actually inspired by Out of Africa – a film bursting with style if we may say – which is more than evident thanks to the basket weave cardigans and skinny jodhpurs complete with their very own suede knee patches. Our favourite piece from the collection, however, is the Nappa Gemima bootie in “truffle” as it’s a versatile shoe that would be just as welcome […]

David Beckham is devilishly handsome in Ralph Lauren

We thought we’d mix it up a bit this Tuesday morning and feature a man in our celebrity style section. Not just any old man of course – the one and only Mr David Beckham! Victoria Beckham’s delicious-looking husband was at Wimbledon over the weekend (thankfully he wasn’t on screen for long otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to concentrate on the score!) and watched the very exciting Mikhail Kukushkin vs Rafael Nadal match on centre court from the privacy of the Royal Box. David looked extremely smart and handsome in his Polo Ralph Lauren Sport blazer, which he teamed with a Ralph Lauren Black Label white shirt, black trousers, and a matching tie that complemented the hues of the whole outfit perfectly. We’re not sure whether his Spice Girl turned fashion designer wife helped him put his outfit together or whether he managed it all on his own, but whoever it was deserves a huge pat on the back. Then again, we haven’t seen many outfits that David Beckham hasn’t looked good in, so we guess we are a bit biased. What do you think of Becks’ look?

Why is Ralph Lauren “furious” with Kate Middleton?

Gosh, it’s all kicking off this week, isn’t it? First there was the infamous elevator gate, and now we just might have Windsor Castle gate, as it’s being reported that Ralph Lauren was “furious” that Kate Middleton didn’t attend his high profile charity bash at Windsor Castle the other night. “Ralph Lauren was furious when he found out less than six weeks ago that Kate would not be there,” a ‘source’ allegedly said. “He considered pulling out but was told by his PR advisers that it would look terrible. “The company thought they were getting Kate, the most famous clothes horse in the world, and also a runway show at the castle.” Yikes! We hope the designer doesn’t hold it against for too long as it would be a shame to never see the Duchess of Cambridge wearing Ralph Lauren (pictured above) again. Ralph can’t have been too upset though, as a host of other A-listers from Cate Blanchett to Kate Moss and many more in-between rocked up to show their support for the Royal  Marsden charity.

Cate Blanchett is a vision in white for Ralph Lauren Royal Marsden dinner

We told you yesterday about Ralph Lauren’s newest philanthropic collaboration with the Royal Marsden, so you may remember that we mentioned that Prince William would  be hosting a dinner at Windsor Castle to raise money for the wonderful charity. As promised, the dinner was attended by a host of A-listers from Emma Watson to Kate Moss and many more, but it was Cate Blanchett who grabbed our attention. Cate Blanchett seldom fails to impress on a red carpet, and this was no exception, as she looked like a pure vision of loveliness in a white Ralph Lauren autumn/winter 2014 dress that inevitably made people’s heads turn and jaws drop simultaneously as she walked past. Never has an outfit for a charity dinner been more appropriate, if you ask us! Cate’s pulled back hair, bold red lipstick and statement chandelier earrings complemented her Ralph Lauren dress perfectly. We know it’s only Wednesday, but this is definitely a best dressed of the week contender.

Ralph Lauren teams up with Royal Marsden charity

Ralph Lauren is taking on a new philanthropic project, as it’s just been announced that he will be teaming up with the Royal Marsden charity. The American fashion designer will attend a charity dinner hosted by Prince William – the President of the charity – at  Windsor Castle tonight. And although Ralph Lauren has met and dressed countless famous faces over his very impressive career, he’s reportedly extremely chuffed to finally meet our future King… “It’s a very important night. Mr. Lauren has not met the Duke before and he is over the moon about it, and very excited,” an official spokesperson for Ralph Lauren said. “He has spent a long time looking for the right cancer-related philanthropic mission. This is an opportunity to develop that work.” Ralph Lauren himself had his own personal battle with the disease over 25 years ago, so we know that the charity and all the fantastic things it does is very close to his heart. A host of A-listers such as Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Emma Watson, Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne and Mario Testino are also rumoured to be attending tonight’s event, so you know it’s bound to be a good one!

Ralph Lauren launches RL Vintage

It was a sad day when we learnt that the Ralph Lauren Rugby line would be shut down. However, it’s true what they say about one door opening when one closes, as the brand has introduced a (we would say brand new but it’s technically the opposite) vintage line entitled RL Vintage. Each season, Ralph Lauren will choose rare and unique pieces from the archives to bring back, with each season having a different theme. This time round it’s all things Western, which means everything from fringed jackets to saddle bags to all else inbetween. “I am happy to welcome you to RL Vintage, a very personal experience for collectors who share my love of craftsmanship, patina, heritage and personal style,” Ralph Lauren said. “Since my childhood, I have been drawn to old things. I love their stories, each artist’s hand and their enduring style. These are the things that have inspired everything I do.” We love the interactivity of the site too, as Ralph Lauren fans can have a say in what items go on sale in the “bring it back” section which we think is pretty darn cool. The current debate is about which Polo Bear sweater should be brought back: head to rlvintage.com to have your say! [Vogue]

Meet Robyn Lawley, Ralph Lauren’s first ever plus size model!

While we wait patiently for Burberry to confirm whether or not it’s teaming up with Adele for a plus size collection, Ralph Lauren has revealed that 23-year-old Australian model Robyn Lawley has become the first ever plus sized face of the brand. And if the pic above is anything to go by, we think she’s totally owned it! You may recognise Robyn and her gorgeous curves from the Boux Avenue lingerie ad campaign, as well as the covers of Vogue Italia and French Elle among others, although we think Ralph Lauren is her biggest and best gig yet! Good Morning America stated that Robyn is a US size 12 – a UK size 16 – which according to statistics is actually smaller than the average American woman. Still, we think this is a step in the right direction for showcasing all body types in fashion, and we hope more brands take a leaf out of Ralph Lauren’s book. [NY Daily News]

Label Whore Redefined: 88-Keys’ Love for Polo Ralph Lauren

There’s one thing to be a label whore in that your love for high-end brand names is far-reaching and shows no real particular bias. Then there’s 88-Keys. This record producer, emcee, and fashion enthusiast’s affinity for Polo Ralph Lauren is literally unrivalled. However, what easily distinguishes 88-Keys from the typical label whore is that for one, he has exclusively worn Polo Ralph Lauren for 16 years on a day to day basis and two; he boasts an astounding knowledge on the brand’s many collections. Definitely fresher than the average!

Polo Ralph Lauren loses battle

Polo Ralph Lauren has lost a legal battle in which it tried to stop both the US polo association and a rival clothing company from using a logo which resembled Ralph Laurens own trademark polo horseman. David Cummings, president of USPA Properties, said: “Since 1984, the US Polo Association has been trying to co-exist with Polo Ralph Lauren, but it appears they wanted nothing more than a monopoly on the sport. That has ended today with this ruling.”

Angelina Jolie is Best Dressed of the Week in custom-made Ralph & Russo

It’s always hard to shine when you’re not the reason the red carpet(black in this case) was laid out, but wherever Ms. Jolie goes, she commands the red carpet. Accompanying fiancé Brad Pitt to the Berlin premiere of his latest film World War Z, Angelina looked a vision in white, wearing a custom-made Ralph & Russo strapless peplum dress with rose gold belt-like detailing at the waist. Although we’ve waxed lyrical about her black Saint Laurent Paris look at the London premiere for the film, this look elevates the Little White Dress to new heights. The leggy beauty teamed the stunning dress with matching pumps and her signature glossy locks. A look like Angelina’s needs no accessorising, so we’re glad she skipped the bag in favour of a small, elegant earrings and a cuff-style bracelet. What do you think; she certainly outdid her star of the film husband-to-be, right? [Image: Zimbio]

Mastering The Runway Of Numbers

Accounting for the fashion industry is a complex and dynamic field, as it navigates the unique challenges and opportunities of this vibrant sector. The fashion industry, characterized by its creative nature, rapid product turnover, and global supply chains, requires specialized accounting approaches to ensure financial health and sustainability. Here will delve into the key aspects of accounting in the fashion industry, focusing on strategies for avoiding sales and profitability issues, and will provide relevant statistics and examples. Understanding the Fashion Industry Landscape The global fashion industry, estimated to be worth over $1.5 trillion, is driven by a fast-paced environment where trends change frequently. A McKinsey report highlights that fashion companies’ profitability can vary significantly, with the top 20% of companies contributing 128% of the industry’s total profit. This disparity indicates a high level of volatility and competition. Key Accounting Challenges in Fashion Inventory Management: Fashion brands face the challenge of managing inventory levels to meet changing consumer demands without overstocking, which can lead to markdowns and reduced profitability. For example, Zara, a leader in fast fashion, has optimized its Just-in-Time (JIT) inventory management using advanced analytics, reducing overstock. Cost Allocation: Proper cost allocation, including manufacturing, shipping, marketing, and overhead costs, is vital. Burberry’s strategic approach to cost allocation contributed to their operating profit margin of approximately 17.8% in 2020. Revenue Recognition: Recognizing revenue at the appropriate time is crucial, especially with varied sales channels like online, in-store, and wholesale. Prada, for instance, recognized a revenue increase of 24.8% in 2022 due to effective revenue recognition strategies across different sales channels. Accounting Strategies to Avoid Sales and Profitability Issues Accurate Demand Forecasting: Utilizing data analytics for predicting fashion trends and consumer demands can help in maintaining optimal stock levels. Levi’s, through predictive analytics, reported a 6% increase in sales from 2016 […]

Top 50 Fashion Designers In The World

Ever wondered who the top 50 fashion designers in the world are? Well, wonder no more. We’ve put together a list most famous fashion designers from around the globe. From past icons to current trailblazers who are setting the trends right now, here’s a comprehensive deep dive into the best fashion designers without whom the fashion industry just wouldn’t be the same. 1. Coco Chanel If there’s one iconic fashion designer who’s influenced the industry more than any other, it’s definitely Coco Chanel. She brought something new to the table, freeing women from the restrictions of frills and corsets, instead offering up simple, comfortable styles. And today, more than 50 years after her passing, her influence is still felt. Coco Chanel’s early life wasn’t an easy one, marked by tragedy and hardship. Her mother passed away when she was young, and she and her siblings had to be raised at an orphanage. Despite everything, Chanel was determined to make a name for herself in the world. Her designs stood out from the crowd, effortless and refined. She transformed fabrics that were traditionally associated with men’s clothing, like tweed and jersey, into chic, comfy pieces for women. The late designer will always be remembered for her creation of the little black dress, which is still a wardrobe staple for many. Chanel also branched out into the fragrance industry, launching her famous Chanel No. 5 perfume in 1921. She was a trendsetter in more ways than one, using groundbreaking marketing techniques to promote her work. And even now, you can spot her signature CC logo anywhere and to this day Chanel is one of the top French fashion brands in the world. 2. Giorgio Armani Giorgio Armani is a name that screams luxury and style, and this Italian designer has been a […]

I’m Bored Of Florals. What Other Prints Can I Wear This Spring? 

Truth: We’re tired of florals. Yes, we know florals are synonymous with spring and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon. And we don’t have a problem with that. There are times when we can’t get enough of flowery prints, but with an abundance of the popular print in our wardrobes, this season we’re looking for alternatives to complete our outfits. With that said,  there are a ton of other prints to experiment with as the warmer months approach. From retro to paisley and polka dots. So, avoid falling into the trap that only florals will do.

It’s April already; how did that happen? We’re now well into spring, and summer will soon be here. With this in mind, start your preparations now. Of course, winter does give us fluffy jumpers, cable-knit tights and chunky scarves, but our summer wardrobe allows us to really show our personality. Moreover, vintage clothing is a fantastic way to bestow some life into your wardrobe. Fashion trends recede and flow with the passage of time, but like seasons, they always come back around. Vintage fashion is the ultimate accolade of rare and timeless culture, and for many, has become an identity, if not a time-honoured tradition. You may not want to miss out on the summer trends of 2019 – athleisure, biker shorts, boiler suits; these are all styles that you’re able to pair with vintage garments. Wearing new and vintage clothing together helps to separate an outfit, creating a unique look. With summer less than three months away, it’s time to start building your wardrobe. Where can you find the best vintage clothes, you ask? Online Online is the epitome of clothes shopping these days. In fact, 87% of retail purchases are made online. Unsurprisingly, if you delve deep enough, and know where to look, there are some pretty awesome vintage finds on the Internet. Etsy is the go-to online marketplace for vintage finds and handmade clothing of yesteryear. Product listings range from tweed coats to midi dresses to ruffle blouses and mom jeans. Whatever your style, Etsy has something for everyone and in every price range. eBay is the pioneer of the online marketplace and just happens to be a brilliant treasure trove for vintage clothing. The sheer range of sellers (there really are thousands) makes their range hard to beat. You can find everything from vintage K-Swiss sneakers […]

With just 2 months to go till the arrival of the royal baby, Meghan Markle is spending some much needed downtime in NYC. Said to have arrived on Friday, The Duchess of Sussex has been in the Big Apple celebrating her baby shower, having lunch with friends and visiting the Met Breuer. Basically she’s been chilling out and we certainly think she deserves it.

Kate Middleton And Meghan Markle Attend Wimbledon Women’s Final Together

Marking their first public engagement together without their husbands, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle took to Wimbledon to watch Serena Williams and Angelique Kerber battle it out in the ladies final and we can only assume Meghan was rooting for Serena considering they’re best buds (the tennis star was a guest at the Royal Wedding). Pictured laughing and chatting away, the sisters-in-law stuck to their signature style for the occasion. Meghan opted for a Ralph Lauren striped shirt and white wide-leg trousers while Kate wore a Jenny Packham knee-length summer dress with nude heels. Both ladies looked lovely as usual and hopefully we’ll get to see the Duchesses enjoying quality time together in the near future.

Top 20 Best Dressed At The Met Gala 2018

It’s the event every fashionista has been waiting for. The annual Met Gala took place last night at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the majority of celebs in attendance didn’t disappoint. Hosted by Rihanna, Donatella Versace, Amal Clooney and Anna Wintour, the theme of the evening was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” While as per usual, some starlets copped out by playing it safe in a standard gown that would have been at home at any red-carpet, to the delight of us here at MFL, others such as Rihanna (whom never lets us down), Sarah Jessica Parker, Blake Lively, Zendaya and many more put in 150%. Here’s our top 20 best dressed at the Met Gala 2018! Amal Clooney in Richard Quinn Zendaya in Atelier Versace Jasmine Sanders in H&M Lily Collins in Givenchy Tessa Thompson in Thom Browne Doutzen Kroes in Sies Marjan Rihanna in custom Maison Margiela Diane Kruger in Prabal Gurung Jourdan Dunn in Diane von Furstenberg Evan Rachel Wood in Altuzarra Sarah Jessica Parker in Dolce & Gabbana Jennifer Lopez in Balmain Priyanka Chopra in Ralph Lauren Gigi Hadid in Atelier Versace Cardi B in Moschino Solange Knowles in Iris van Herpen Blake Lively in Atelier Versace Emilia Clarke in Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Rosie Huntington Whiteley in Ralph Lauren Amanda Seyfried in Prada

Best Dressed At The SAG Awards 2018

In contrast to the Golden Globes, the 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards was a colourful affair. Held yesterday at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, Hollywood’s leading actresses hit the red carpet in a riot of shades from electric blue to canary yellow, emerald green and shimmering metallic’s. Admittedly, some of the outfits left us feeling a tad confused and disappointed (we shall refrain from naming and shaming). However, for us here at MFL, starlets including Halle Berry, Alison Williams and Susan Kelechi Watson knocked it right out of the park. Here’s a round-up of our faves. Who were you loving on the red carpet this year?

It can often be a chuck on, however, zip up hoodies can be worn with both smart and casual styles.

J-Law will be joining Chinese actress Gong Li, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, businesswoman Wendi Deng Murdoch, and Anna Wintour in hosting the event, which this year will be celebrating the opening of the exhibit entitled Chinese Whispers: Tales of the East in Art, Film, and Fashion.

The richest fashion families – from the Armanis to the Versaces – revealed!

The Sunday Times Rich List was announced at the weekend, but now it’s time to take a look at a list a little more fashion focused. More specifically, the 14 most powerful fashion families – thank you Harper’s Bazaar! So, who do you think made the list? It comes as no surprise to learn that the Armanis have got it pretty good; as of 2013, Giorgio Armani’s fortune was estimated at over $8.5 billion, and with his sister Rosanna and two nieces Silvana and Roberta also working with/for him, that’s a very rich family indeed! No fashion rich list is complete without Ralph Lauren and his family; his £14 billion empire can’t be ignored! Ralph’s wife and children do their bit for the family name and business by representing the Ralph Lauren brand across the world, which we think makes them entitled to dip into the RL family savings. Donatella Versace is obviously high on the list, running the House of Versace for her brother Gianni Versace, while relative newcomer Alexander Wang and his family have already cemented their place on the list. And with his fashion involvements increasing as the days go on, he won’t be disappearing from the list any time soon. We’re glad and not at all surprised to see Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen on the list either. They may have come into the spotlight when they were under a year old, but the work they have done for their fashion empire is no coincidence or stroke of luck. They’ve worked hard to go from child actors to respected fashion designers, and that’s definitely reflected in the success of their The Row and Elizabeth and James clothing lines – not to mention their eye-watering fortune! The one name we’re shocked to see omitted from the list? The […]

The Met Gala 2014: The best dressed!

All the big names in fashion, film, and music gathered at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last night, for the highly anticipated Met Gala! This year, the museum was honouring Charles James, and the dress-code was a very simple (albeit slightly “boring” according to Marc Jacobs) “white tie and decorations”. Anyone familiar with the work of Charles James would know that elegant eveningwear was his thing, so they wouldn’t have gone wrong by donning the finest couture pieces with some elegant jewels. There were many ladies who absolutely nailed their looks, while some probably should have stayed home. Stella McCartney had a big moment on the red carpet, dressing the likes of Rihanna and Reese Witherspoon so flawlesslessly for the event, in two very different but equally stunning dresses. Rihanna went for her signature sexy look, while Reese was a vintage glamour goddess. Selena Gomez also wowed on the red carpet for us, looking very mature for just 21 years old in a bold deep purple Diane von Furstenberg dress. We also love how Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were reunited at the Met Gala – they both looked amazing in  their respective Gucci Premiere and Emilio Pucci dresses. Not all of the ladies went for full-length or ballgown dresses (like Hayden Panettiere who looked like a Princess!) though – Solange Knowles and Lena Dunham were just two of the stars who went for something a little bit shorter. The impact definitely wasn’t lost though. Here are our best dressed celebs from last night’s Met Gala. Let us know who gets your vote in the comments below. Victoria Beckham in Victoria Beckham Rihanna in Stella McCartney Blake Lively in Gucci Premiere Reese Witherspoon in Stella McCartney Selena Gomez in Diane von Furstenberg Emma […]

Rita Ora wows in white Roberto Cavalli at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum

It doesn’t look like we can go very many days without swooning over Rita Ora’s sartorial choices at the moment – and her latest look is an absolute killer! The singer and style maven attended The Glamour of Italian Fashion Exhibition Preview at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum, wearing one of the finest Italian designers of them all: Roberto Cavalli. Rita wowed the crowd in a floor-length white dress from Roberto Cavalli’s autumn/winter 2014 collection, proving that white really is the go-to colour of the moment. First Emma Watson in Ralph Lauren, then Olivia Cooke in Mulberry, and now Rita is taking on the trend, too! We think Rita wanted to one-up Emma and Olivia by embracing the white trend, as she accessorised her dress with a white bag and white hair, which we think might have been inspired by Nicole Richie’s ‘do at last year’s Met Gala. Her token red lip completed the look perfectly and added just the right amount of colour! Do you love Rita’s look?

Olivia Cooke nails the LWD trend in Mulberry

Say goodbye to the LBD, because the little white dress is having a serious moment! White dresses – long, short, little, large and all else in-between – are hotter than ever right now, and the female stars of Hollywood definitely got the memo. Emma Watson, she who can do no wrong on the red carpet these days, wowed in a white Ralph Lauren dress at the Noah premiere earlier this week, and now Olivia Cooke is following in her footsteps too. The beautiful British actress kept things British last night, as she attended The Quiet Ones red carpet in London wearing a chic white dress from the Mulberry spring/summer 2014 collection. Olivia’s look was age appropriate, fun, extremely flattering, and her up-do and hot pink shoes were the perfect accompaniment to complement the dress. We wouldn’t change a thing!

Brooklyn Beckham makes his modelling debut for Man About Town

His younger brother Romeo has already got a taste of the modelling world thanks to his appearance in a Burberry ad campaign back in 2012, but now 15-year-old Brooklyn Beckham wants to give it a shot too. David and Victoria Beckham’s firstborn is the cover star of the bi-annual Man About Town publication – an honour his very famous dad David Beckham also had for the mag’s spring/summer 2013 issue. “We could not have wished for a stronger subject than Brooklyn to bring this story to life,” said the mag’s editor Ben Reardon. “He was a diligent, relaxed cover star for his first ever fashion shoot. “It is clear that he is becoming a credit to the family name, not only possibly the most famous in the world but one with a wealth of heavyweight fashion influence behind it.” Brooklyn can be seen posing in some very cool threads in the editorial images, from the likes of Saint Laurent to Ralph Lauren and many more in-between. We think he’s done the Beckham family proud, and we can’t wait to see what he does next! [Telegraph]

It isn’t just clothes and accessories that our favourite fashion designers have put their stamp on, oh no. Talents from the likes of Armani to Ralph Lauren to everyone else in-between have put their name – and signature aesthetics – to some of the most luxurious hotels in the world. If your man asks you to pick a holiday destination as a Valentine’s Day gift, then why don’t you pick one which is home to a fab and fashionable boutique hotel? When in Rome… Round Hill Hotel and Villas, Montego Bay, Jamaica. This one is perfect if you’re going the full hog – Moet champagne, private jet, the lot! Ralph Lauren has transformed all 36 rooms at the Round Hill Hotel and Villas’ into a luxurious destination for fashionistas and jetsetters alike – a particular highlight is the 18th century plantation house which is now a soothing and relaxing spa!

The 12,000 square foot spa also gets a mention! Hotel Missoni, Edinburgh. Edinburgh might not seem as glamorous as some of the other destinations we’ve mentioned, mostly due to the unpredictable and wet and […]
