Location: New York

Season: Fall/Winter 2017

Key Pieces: Colorblocked field jackets, embossed leather racer jackets, double-breasted tuxedos, red-accented leather biker jackets, jacquard knit sweaters.

Editor's Notes: Technically designers are showing off their Spring/Summer 2018 collections, but Ralph Lauren opted for an immersive see now-buy now experience for the label's Fall/Winter 2017 line. Shown in Bedford, NY at the iconic designer's own garage, Lauren's automotive collection set the backdrop for the clothing.

In the brand's words: "The cars Ralph Lauren has collected through the years look as contemporary and luxurious today as they did when they were made, a parallel principle as the one guiding his sense of design: Fashion is over quickly. Style is forever."

The cars featured included a 1965 Aston Martin DB5, 1937 Bugatti Type 575C, 1958 Ferrari 250 Testarossa Spyder, 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB N.A.R.T. Spyder, 1960 Ferrari 250GT and a 1930 Mercedes Benz "Count Trossi." The first collector car the designer bought was a 1955 Mercedes Gullwing that he copped in the '80s.

Some other info gearheads will drool over is the fact that Ralph's garage features a ramp connecting the ground floor and upper level in lieu of a staircase, so the rare cars can be freely driven out and about. Other automotive pedigrees under Lauren's belt include having 16 of his cars featured in an exhibit at the Boston Museum of Fine Art, and winning best in show at the 2013 Concorso d'ELeganza Villa d'Este for his 1938 Bugatti 57CSC Atlantic. Take a closer look at some of his cars in the gallery below.
