Ralph Lauren Spring 2014 Collection: Hero Worship

Ralph Lauren’s Spring 2014 show kicked off with a sporty mood and a stark palette.

Zero + Maria Cornejo Spring 2014 Collection: The Real Thing

I love it when a show feels less like looking and more like shopping. I may be imaginary shopping while it’s still coming forth down the runway, but when I catch myself making countless mental notes for next season’s wardrobe, I know I’m witnessing something special.
