    A lesson in style by Ralph Lauren

    A lesson in style by Ralph Lauren

    On the occasion of the presentation of the documentary "Very Ralph" in Paris, the famous American designer reveals the keys to his style. 

    "I like clothes. I do not think fashion, but style. I like creating pieces that improve over time, "says Ralph Lauren in the very first documentary portrait Very Ralph, directed and produced by Susan Lacy. While in Paris on the occasion of the presentation of this film and its elevation by Emmanuel Macron to the rank of Officer in the Order of the Legion of Honor, the creator lavished his clothing advice.

    Dare mixtures

    "What matters is how to wear clothes and mix them up to tell a story. You never have to be boring, "says Ralph Lauren, who from the beginning has always mixed the different styles of clothing. Here, an Oxford shirt worn with a tie and sweatpants. There, a black tuxedo jacket on jeans. Or, an evening dress embroidered with gold under a khaki cotton military parka. We will break the classic black leather jacket with a white shirt and a bow tie.

    Playing borders

    "I think the western style offers raw elegance and authenticity to which we all value," says Ralph Lauren. A velvet calfskin frock jacket, a snap denim shirt, a long cardigan, a colorful fabric coat with colorful Native American patterns or cowboy boots can be worn with a tweed blazer or pleated skirt. Engraved silver and turquoise jewels are to be distilled to more formal outfits.

    Love the military

    "I love old army clothing," says Ralph Lauren. The peacoat, the women's officer coat, and the gold-trimmed, red-trimmed pea jacket are slipped over a cashmere turtleneck sweater, cotton poplin shirt, and jeans. They can also be paired with a turtleneck sweater, straight merino wool straight trousers, an alligator buckle belt, a pair of loafers or leather biker boots.

    Assume the Preppy look

    Fascinated by the dressing room of the American golden youth, the designer has always been inspired by the style of the Ivy League students, a sort of cartel of the best universities, thus popularizing the Preppy look. "When I started to draw my men's collections, I explored the timeless elements of this classic style. My inspiration came from year-end albums and images of college students from Princetown, Harvard and Yale universities, "says the designer. In his wardrobe, you'll need a navy blue blazer with gold buttons, a few striped ties, button-up cotton-poplin shirts, gray flannel-clad trousers, and saddle shoes (white brick nubuck-colored derbies). and two three cashmere sweaters with twisted pattern called "Cable". The velvet milleraies trousers in bright color or beige cotton is worn with a grosgrain buckle belt with fine contrasting stripes.

    Do not sulk the sportswear

    The polo shirt, the gray cotton sports trousers, the boat shoes and the teddy are indispensable in the men's wardrobe. These clothes and shoes are worn with matching wool trousers and herringbone pattern vest, a contrasting crew neck striped shirt held by a safety pin under a striped wool knit tie.
