Ralph Panned

Now I've seen everything. Ralph Lauren's "shabby chic" collection for Spring 2010 was panned in the Washington Post this morning. You can read Robin Givhan's review at this link. I have to say, after seeing the clothes, I have to agree with her. She is a keen fashion observer, and she actually panned most of the Spring looks.

As a rule, I think Ralph Lauren produces some of the most beautiful, romantic clothing and accessories on earth. His advertisements are masterpieces. I would love to live in his fantasy world. It's sad that he couldn't give fashion lovers a "lift" in bad times, rather than playing to the mood of poverty, despair, and recession.
