It has to be said that after considering the recent colour vs monochrome debate, I am a keen supporter of darker matching shades – they often give a classier and more elegant look. However, after seeing these new arrivals from the Bright Escape range of Ralph Lauren, my certainty is wavering.
These new arrivals convey the classic preppy aesthetic we have come to expect from the brand through their renowned polo’s, sweaters and shirts – although this season Ralph Lauren have been inspired by bold colour and are clearly intent on dragging the kaleidoscopic tones from 2011 into 2012.
The pullover and sweaters are both made of the finest Pima Cotton – originating from Peru it provides superior warmth yet wears lightweight – making them ideal for everyday wear.
One particular item that stands out from this collection is this Navy Palm Safari Jacket, which features multiple pockets and a convenient back vent. The blazer style jacket is unstructured, lightweight in construction and looks great with the sleeves worn at elbow length – therefore it could become a quintessential item for your spring/summer 2012 wardrobe.
This entire range offers an extensive choice of apparel in a spectrum of colours, and will provide you with great versatility this spring/summer. Check out the full collection over at Ralph Lauren.
