WALL STREET STRIPES
NEW YORK — Is it his impending IPO, or merely his penchant for timeless style?

Here, from the collection he shows on Wednesday, Lauren’s strong-shouldered cashmere coat over a silk shirt and wool and Lycra spandex flannel pants. For a look at the opening of the New York collections, see pages 6 to 9.
