When it comes to the perceptions of the Fashion Week crowd, Ralph Lauren remains American royalty. In the fashion house's latest collection, the designer draws inspiration from its classic references — military-inspired jackets, naval blazers, and color-blocked sweaters that border on "preppy." However, this collection is noticeably elegant, nostalgic yet effervescently fresh, and ready for a fabulous party, from the sheer bell-bottom sleeves of one ensemble down to the metallic gold T-strap sandles with rubber detailing throughout.

The show was peppered with Fashion Week mainstays like Bella Hadid and Taylor Hill. Perhaps the most notable moment of the show occurred when Hadid ascended the staircase of Ralph's Cafe — a set expanded from the coffee shop on the top floor of the Ralph Lauren Madison Avenue womens' flagship building for the Fall 2019 show — in a glittering v-neck gown seemingly ripped from the pages of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. The collection in its entirety is effortlessly chic, and the monochromatic color scheme layered with metallic elements create a collection that seems destined for the most glamorous night out one could possibly imagine. Plus, they served breakfast.
