10:35 a.m. Well hello, winter white! Yesterday’s snowstorm didn’t stop Ralph Lauren from showing his standout fall collection. In fact, it only made a stronger case for the ivory wrap coat and plush faux furs — in sweet shades of lavender and cotton candy — that he sent down the runway. (The lineup had editors taking to Twitter to express how badly they wanted to be wearing those clothes at that second. Guilty.)
Karlie Kloss, in one of the show’s opening all-white ensembles, looked like a chic power executive from Colorado. Wearing a cashmere turtleneck, paired with slouchy trousers tucked into sneakers (!) and topped off with a long double-breasted coat, she seemed impervious to any kind of polar vortex that might come her way.
Even the eveningwear was ski chalet-ready. An attention-commanding silk skirt featuring a slit up to there worn with a gauzy gray sweater was the week's best answer to all the street style peacocks being photographed in their skimpy outfits.
But the closing series of swoon-worthy satin gowns? Those should be admired all year round.
