Overview

Ralph Lauren has bought in. The man with the clout to close a stretch of Madison Avenue for a good part of Wednesday — and have it secured with a major NYPD presence — staged a full-on buy-now show that evening. He presented on the sidewalk in front of his women’s flagship, where he commissioned a glass extension connected to the building as insurance against inclement weather. The collection stood up to the fanfare, a chic, sophisticated homage to the American West.
