In the Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 collection, the world-renowned designer takes a look at these tough economic times and thinks about the power of American resiliency.

Lauren’s inspiration comes from the attributes of the farmer, the cowboy and the pioneer women of the prairies, so taking us back to the old days was easy. The Ralph Lauren Spring 2010 collection offers simple pieces including newsboy caps, blue work shirts, structured tube dresses and military-esque jackets. His vision is a romanticized one and like his other collections, tells a story.
