Heidi, who works at the Ralph Lauren store in Soho, New York, was just too good to miss. So much to the fact that I pulled her outside for a quick photo opp and a chat. Her all encompassing Ralph Lauren outfit was resplendent in detail and geo-era influences. I mean look at the dress. The detailed patchwork reminded me of an art canvas, where material replaces paint, and an amazing melange of colour and texture comes to life. It’s worth noting that each patch was made individually and then combined. Such inspired work by Ralph Lauren, whose vision for this dress rise from Indochine.
What’s great about Heidi’s style is the range she’s chosen to wear from Ralph Lauren. Often is the case that sales clerks from boutiques bear a homogenous look from the brand they represent. Not Heidi, though. She’s managed to unite both the orient and Lauren’s wild west styles with the denim jacket, vintage cowgirl shoes and belt from Lauren’s runway collection. Sublime.
