Ralph Lauren presents ‘California Dreaming’ a Spring/Summer 2023 in Los Angeles.
The #RLSP23 collections draw inspiration from the World of Ralph Lauren and the dream of California—one of joy, optimism, and endless pursuit of a life well lived. Each collection is imbued with Ralph Lauren’s spirit of personal style and individuality, uniting it with the spirit of California living and dreaming.
Over the last few years, Ralph Lauren has shown us his New York—the stupendous 50th anniversary show in Central Park, the café society show presented at his uptown store, the swanky supper club he erected near Wall Street and, after a break in live shows due to the pandemic, last season’s soignee affair at MoMA. While there’s no denying he’s a New Yorker through and through, nothing gets the creative juices flowing quite like a case of wanderlust.
And so the designer looked farther afield for spring. Specifically to Southern California—shockingly, the first time he’s shown here. He could have gone anywhere he pleased, but Lauren landed on an unexpected choice—the Huntington Library, a museum and botanical garden just northeast of Los Angeles proper, founded in 1919 by an industrialist family that made their fortunes in railroads and real estate.
It was against the museum’s Mediterranean Revival style facade that Lauren presented his vision to his pals from the upper echelons of Hollywood’s elite—Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck, Diane Keaton (whom he dressed in her breakthrough role in Annie Hall), Laura Dern, John Legend, Chris Pine, Lily Collins, and Robin Wright, to name but a few. He savvily had a strong contingent of content creators present too, like TikTok stars Noah Beck and Wisdom Kaye. The cushioned loungers and twilight cocktail hour set the tone—this was California casual, done the Ralph way.
Setting the stage for a golden evening celebrating #RalphLauren’s Spring 2023 collections, the air is fragrant with roses and camellias in the scenic landscape of The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens.
