THIS holiday season, Ralph Lauren drew inspiration from the Spanish Riding School, in Vienna, a centuries-old institution that teaches equestrians on horseback balletic movements that are performed in a ring. This winter, evoke the sartorial legacy of the school’s equestrians in pieces with cavalry-inspired flair. Statement outerwear, such as Denim & Supply’s Tartan Officer’s Coat and Blue Label’s Embroidered Twill Jacket, skinny jodhpur crafted from red velvet fabric, luxe calfskin backpack and tasselled boots.
The Holiday 2013 collection also features some very feminine and sensual red outfits, because nobody stands out in a crowd like a beautiful woman wearing blazing red. And this winter season, with its twinkling lights and festive dress code, is the perfect time to rock the brilliant hue. Make it part of your daytime wardrobe with a rich wool-blend coat or cashmere sweater. After dark, a red cocktail dress or silk column gown recalls screen sirens of decades past, and a sleek silhouette keeps either look modern.
