Patrons enjoyed the latest designs from Ralph Lauren Black Label Fall 2013 Collection and makeovers from Chantecaille. While many of the collection’s pieces are now available online and in-store, a select few items were exclusively on hand to shop during this event only. Guests were treated to a private runway show styled with the latest looks for fall.
- Stretch Leather
- Modern Lace
- Tissue Weight Suede – perfect year round
- Mixed Media – cashmere mixed with suede, tweed with leather, and more
- Elegant Silhouettes for the "Modern Woman"
Black Label is the quintessential brand for the modern woman. This year is the renaissance of Black Label as it inhabits a more youthful spirit. You will encounter this spirit in cutting edge materials like stretch leather denim (not your everyday jeans!), laser-cut lace, and a new style of stitching. Black Label has even welcomed a new team of designers to refresh their vision.
You may have seen Hollywood style stalwarts like Angelina Jolie and Jessica Alba on the red carpet in Ralph Lauren Black Label. You can also catch it this fall on Emily Van Camp in Revenge. It is the perfect brand collaboration, don’t you think? Her character Emily Thorne has a classic and elegant, yet modern style, which fits Black Label perfectly. I cannot wait to see what she wears on the show from this collection!
Ralph Lauren is proud to team up with St. Louis National Charity Horse Show for this event. 10% of the event’s Ralph Lauren Black Label sales, up to $5000, were donated to the charity. The organization features some of the finest equestrian competition in the nation and also supports and highlights local St. Louis-area charities. This year they have partnered with Stray Rescue St. Louis. I was lucky to meet one of their strays, Europe, who is currently looking for a new owner. Isn’t she adorable?
I cannot tell you how amazing this charity is. Volunteers foster rescued stray animals until they are able to find a new home. It is a wonderful way to donate your time. You can also make new friends through their social and volunteering events. The organization pays the pet's bills while you foster. Stray Rescue St. Louis raises funds through private donors. If you are interested in helping out or donating, visit them here.
