It’s easy to understand why Ralph Lauren is still considered to this day as one of the most successful brands of all time, not only by those inserted in its aesthetic sphere, but by every reputed personality in menswear, regardless of personal style and taste. In my opinion, Ralph Lauren owes its success to brilliant storytelling and the early adoption of the “lifestyle concept”, the introduction of narrative and context to fashion.
This concept has been so exquisitely explored throughout its life cycle that the Ralph Lauren aesthetic is an immediately recognisable trademark. Even if the quality of the lower tier lines isn’t what it used to be, they still provide timeless garments that don’t compromise the integrity of the brand as a whole. Another superb aspect of Ralph Lauren is the ability to adapt and expand to new markets without ever losing its DNA - be it on RRL, RLX or Home, lines who seek to attract distinct consumer profiles, traces of the brand’s universe remain.
A perfect example is its AW17 collection from the luxurious Purple Label line. If you haven’t seen it in person I recommend doing so the next time you visit one of their flagship stores, trust me it’s worth it. This top tier line delivers some of the most high-end garments around, made from luxurious fabrics and portraying an uncanny attention to detail in both design an construction. Usually associated with a more formal style due to the outstanding suiting offerings, usually accompanied by the expertise of their in-house tailors, Purple Label has been evolving, currently offering a wide range of styles as seen above. From 3-piece suits, to tuxedos, playful ikat patterns and sweatpants, the collection sees the Ralph Lauren man as a whole, providing spot-on options for different occasions - what’s not to love?

were slammed on the mattress that was now hibernating beneath your spine. Your
head hit a pillow, and your boyfriend’s body was hovering over yours. His torso
found its way between your thighs. His lips latched onto the flesh of your
neck. The room swarmed with sensuality and familiarity. Layers of cotton and
denim were strayed on the hard wooden floors of Evan’s bedroom. The sheets that
protected his twin size mattress were thrown carelessly. It was a battle of
flesh against flesh, in hopes of winning dominance and sweet harmony.
feeling of Evan’s racing heart was caught between your fingers. Your hands
roamed his exposed skin, drinking in the image of his radiance. His brunette
eyebrows were lifted as his eyelids fluttered to a close. Your touch was like
fire, burning down deep into his soul. His skin was soft. Your hands traveled
to his blue boxers, slipping them down the hip bone that poked the surface of
his skin. With a soft growl, he opened his eyes, staring at your anatomy once
Well, skipped day 14 because of family stuff, a pity since I had a one-punch man idea drafted. Anyway, I’m sure since I’m late to the party that this has already been done, but again, family stuff :/ So the ultimate showdown between good and evil mayo and sweet beans, which is which is up to whoever. Decided to try color with markers this once, never again…
the results of my first set of pressed flowers! the geraniums and calandiva should do well with full flowers in art, while the pincushions (labeled purple pom poms, oops) seem like separate petals for garnishes in art will do? the tiger lily leaked and looks pretty rough, that one will probably be ground. but i’m very happy with the overall results!
Description: “I, Cyra Khadija Rana Wayne, daughter of Damian and Y/N Wayne, refuse to be treated in such a manner! You will surrender yourselves to me,” Her grin turns malicious, and the teenager reveals a katana from the sheath on her back with a resounding shring! Cyra swings the blade once and steadies it into her hands. She scans the crates for signs of life,”…or the tooth fairy will be getting plenty of business tonight.”
Notes: So when I went to my google docs after I stupidly deleted my ENTIRE PREVIOUS ACCOUNT, I found this gem still there. I guess I’ll repost it. Enjoy! Seethis postto know how I messed up.

Damian and Dick immediately exchange a confused glance from their hiding place between the shipping boxes. Daughter of Damian and Y/N Wayne? Dick makes a face that probably means “Uh oh.”
