Juxtaposed against a wall of pale orchids – look closely enough and you might also spot a few animatronic butterflies – Ralph Lauren showcased a desert-themed collection. His dreamy presentation was carried on the light-hearted treble of birdsong, while a palette of sand, bronze, honey, cream, and delicate pastels cued visions of African expeditions or a romantic evening spent stargazing in the desert.

Bella Hadid did her best Arabian Nights impersonation in a silky, tangerine-hued djellaba.

The styles on the runway also spoke to a nomadic theme, ranging from elegant silk loungewear and safari jumpsuits to harem pants and woven cardigans. Even Bella Hadid did her best Arabian Nights impersonation in a silky, tangerine-hued djellaba. Also in the line-up were gilded leather sheaths made from layered leaf-like shingles, leather jackets, and creamy pantsuits worn by the highly-booked Kendall Jenner who looked every inch the mature, sophisticated woman in this well-cut look.

While some of the collection’s more elegant gowns had plain fronts, the real story was in the back, where scooped-out silhouettes proved the ideal canvas for showcasing lavishly bejeweled necklaces. With a cast of “It” girls, a pile of vacation-ready finery, and a coordinated reveal on Facebook Live, Lauren is intent on marching into the future, even at the age of 77.
