These gorgeous ensemble  by Ralph Lauren is now up for grabs. Ralph Lauren is one of the few brands that is going to adopt the see now, buy now concept.

On Wednesday, Ralph Lauren will present a see now, buy now collection for fall, which will be available immediately at its boutiques, online and at wholesalers, according to Vogue.

“Showing clothes, then delivering them six months later. it’s over. With the Internet, social media… you have to change,” Lauren told Vogue.

Clients are interested in getting their hands on the last fashion trends and ensembles. Ralph Lauren is set to expedite their collection coming into stores to concede to the buyer’s demands.

“I’ve always looked at the business as an evolution. We’re never standing still, and we’re never chasing anyone. Everything is a new chapter,” Lauren continued.

In addition to Ralph Lauren’s consumer-facing runway show, which will take place outside the brand’s Madison Avenue flagship store, the label will also have a traditional show for industry types.

Club Monaco, which is owned by Ralph Lauren, also debuted a shoppable collection during its first New York Fashion Week appearance at Grand Central Terminal on Friday. The 35 men’s and women’s looks that were unveiled are part of what Club Monaco has dubbed “The New York Fashion Week Fall Collection.”

After planning the magnanimous event of one’s life, that is the wedding: right from the venue, the dress to the flowers and even invites, the last thing is to scout for new and exciting destinations for the honeymoon. These are some of the best places to visit for newlyweds. Honeymoon pressure is real, and these are the picks for this year’s hottest destinations and romantic getaways.

This is for those honeymooners who, like to completely douse themselves in nature sprinkled with a bit of adventure and serenity.

When you start planning your Serengeti adventure, you’ll soon learn about “the Big Five.” These are the five most popular animals to search for while on your African safari: the lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhinoceros.

“Big” doesn’t have to do with size. The term originated with big game hunters, who deemed these the most challenging large animals to corner and shoot. But in the Serengeti National Park, the only shooting is done with a camera!

Nonetheless, the Big Five still maintain their allure. When you’re out on game drives, your safari guide will help you check off your sightings of these sought-after animals. You’re likely to spot some of them right at Four Seasons Safari Lodge. They might come for a drink at our two watering holes, or stroll by while you’re relaxing on your guest room’s private sundeck.

Check out the Four Seasons Safari Lodge. Wake up every morning to a parade of elephants at the watering hole before a dip in the pool, a visit to the spa, or heading out on a game drive across the Plains. The recent launch of their Honeymoon Package, which includes upgrades like a candlelit dinner and complimentary massage, makes this top notch stay that much sweeter.

Fashion + Fitness Collaboration – Alexander Wang and Adidas

Design maverick Alexander Wang has partnered with sports label favourite Adidas for a new unisex collection.

New York Fashion Week is full of surprises, and at the end of his runway show on Saturday night, Alexander Wang shocked the audience by unveiling an unexpected collaboration with Adidas.

After showing off Wang’s spring/summer 2017 designs for his namesake label, models ran backstage to change into looks from the designer’s 84-piece unisex collaboration of apparel and footwear with Adidas while a teaser film for the collection was played to entertain the audience.

For Wang, this collaboration, which will launch for spring/summer 2017, provided him the opportunity to work with a brand he wore in his youth and a footwear style — sneakers — that he loves.

“I grew up on sneakers. It’s a very interesting time obviously for (all) sportswear, the whole market and how people utilize fitness, incorporate it into their daily uniform. So the sneaker is something that I’ve always been very close to. And it’s always been something that’s very hard for us to do in house, to be honest – obviously Adidas has the most innovative resources,”

With the collection, Wang aimed to make Adidas’ aesthetic feel fresh while still keeping the designs recognizable as being Adidas.

“It was really about saying, how do we take something and shake it up a little, disrupt it, but at the same time not change it so much where it doesn’t feel right,” Wang said.

Adidas hopes to capitalize on Wang’s downtown-cool style.

“I’ve been a fan for a long time, this connection he has with culture and New York and breaking down boundaries. What I really love about Alex is that he is a really established part of the fashion world, but he stands for not being elitist.

Alexander Wang fits the bill of the non elitist but fashionable designer. He lets people in and pushes the boundaries of high street and high fashion.
