Imagine growing up, literally, in a Ralph Lauren world, a gilded atmosphere of hushed sophistication, pitch-perfect elegance, and so much saddle leather and cashmere. Dylan Lauren, the designer's youngest child and only daughter, was raised in this environment, where everything in all those houses was like a movie set - from the 1920s, '30s, '40s, take your pick - and just so, beyond perfect, as if in a photograph. Would she get in trouble if anything was moved out of place?

Ralph Lauren extolled the classic charm of a cashmere sweater worn with a fluttery chiffon skirt. Adrienne Vittadini favored lively young clothes in vivid colors and bold prints. And Michael Kors showed men's white shirts tucked into tiny stretch tube skirts that were nothing more than an Ace bandage around the hips. While there is universal agreement on hemlines - above-the-knee and shorter - designers go their separate ways, offering a wide variety of styles in their spring collections.

Joseph Aezen, 74, a tie salesman and designer who, in a seminal friendship with Ralph Lauren starting in 1960, helped the designer achieve success, died of cancer Sunday in his Rittenhouse Square home. Mr. Aezen was born in Philadelphia and graduated from South Philadelphia High School in 1947. Described by his wife of 23 years, Mollie Aezen, as a turbo-charged salesman, Mr. Aezen began his career selling shoes in several small Philadelphia stores until taking a job selling Rooster ties in 1959.

All-American sportswear got all the attention - and applause - yesterday in the back-to-back collections of Ralph Lauren and Adrienne Vittadini. Both designers emphasized clean, spare clothes in strong colors such as hot pink, violet and geranium red. Everything looked young and natural, especially when worn by the smiling, fresh-faced models who loped along with such nonchalance you'd think they were wearing their own clothes. In fact, members of the fashion troops covering the second week of the fall collections received a pleasant shock of recognition when they saw their uniform - black turtleneck sweater and skinny black pants - come parading down the runway.

No one can accuse Ralph Lauren or Calvin Klein of sampling the signature looks of other designers. The designers simply reinterpreted their own signature looks. If their fall ready-to-wear collections were a record album, the title would be Ralph's and Calvin's Greatest Hits. In the Lauren show yesterday, this meant a remix of the military-inspired ensembles and classic styles that he has shown season after season. In Klein's case, the remake hit parade on Tuesday included slip dresses, coat dresses and tunics in neutral shades - all styled with no extravagant touches.

IT'S DECEMBER and the cold weather is upon us, which is why you're seeing so much flannel on the streets. Clearly everything old is new again, and both guys and gals are sporting these cozy classic prints. This utilitarian look turns up in all kinds of brands, from L.L.Bean to Ralph Lauren, but the bottom line is keeping snug in style.

WHAT WERE they thinking? Is the U.S. Olympic Committee, and conspirator Ralph Lauren, so clueless of American consciousness that they didn't know producing USOC-authorized gear in China would be a gut-punch to most Americans? When it was learned the "Made in China" label would be found in the Team USA apparel in the opening and closing ceremonies, it even awakened the dwarfs in Congress, creating a rare bipartisan moment when zany opposites such as Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner would blast away at the same target.

SO WE NEED to talk about the hat. Tuesday morning, Ralph Lauren unveiled the look that the U.S. Olympic team will wear at the London games' opening ceremonies later this month. The men will wear navy double-breasted blazers, with a red-and-navy tie and cream-colored flat-front pants. Ladies get a knee-length cream skirt, paired with a single-breasted blazer and a red, white and blue scarf.   But here's the problem: Both genders are saddled with a beret, complete with red-and-white stripe.

Jingoism that should remind Americans of the silliness that had people calling french fries "freedom fries" because France didn't support the U.S. invasion of Iraq has members of Congress screaming bloody murder because the U.S. Olympics team's parade uniforms were made in China.   "They should take all the outfits, put them in a big pile and burn them, and start all over," puffed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.).

Ralph Lauren — the company behind America's beloved Polo shirts and khakis — promised last weekend the uniforms it will design for the 2014 Winter Olympics will be made in the USA. The declaration came less than 48 hours after lawmakers raised a fashion ruckus after learning athletes in this month's London games would attend opening ceremonies in one-percenter-style getups — complete with berets and bobby socks — made in China. In a slightly half-cocked but well-meaning gesture, a group of Democrats drafted a bill last week that would require the U.S. Olympic Committee to have this year's uniforms made here.

MY LAST question after every interview I do is a simple one: Is there anything you'd like to add? Seth Green , the actor and Philly native, whimpered: "I miss Philly food. " His voice filled with the sadness of a man who can longer get a cheesesteak made correctly whenever he wants. Green, who can still do a sick impersonation of a Philly accent, will hit the big screen tomorrow when he stars in "The Identical," about a set of twins separated at birth. One becomes an Elvis Presley -esque rock star, while the other (the focus of the movie)

EVEN ON THE NIGHTS when ABC's "Scandal" might be one long eye roll, Kerry Washington's wardrobe commands attention. Because attention's been paid. Washington - who stars as Olivia Pope, Washington, D.C.'s best-dressed crisis manager - told reporters visiting the "Scandal" set last month that she and the show's "phenomenally talented" costume designer, Lyn Paolo, "have been co-conspirators from the very beginning.

AFTER THE FIRST flash of outrage over the revelation that the U.S. Olympic team will march into the opening ceremonies in London wearing blazers and berets outsourced to China by American designer Ralph Lauren, we calmed down a bit.   After all, even if you are committed to "buying American," it is very challenging these days to follow through: In most American stores, it is rare to find clothing that isn't made in China or Vietnam or Indonesia...

NEW YORK - The stakes are high. The judges are brutal. The challenges are difficult. And the contestants are determined to be the next Calvin Klein or Ralph Lauren. Sound familiar? NBC's Fashion Star, a reality TV show that debuts Tuesday, is similar to Lifetime Television's Project Runway except that the wannabe designers won't have to wait until they make it big to get their creations into stores. Some fashions will be on sale at Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, and H&M the day after each prerecorded episode airs.

NEW YORK - This year's New York Fashion Week ended on a decidedly flapperish note. Designers dotted their collections with cloches, menswear styling, plush furs, and velvet gowns with a chicness that hasn't been appreciated since the Roaring Twenties. Maybe it's the subliminal influence of HBO's hit Boardwalk Empire . Coincidentally, I ran into the show's Michael Kenneth Williams in front of Lincoln Center this week. Or it could be fashion's constant preoccupation with everything Coco Chanel - right now we are in an early-Chanel phase, focusing on the corset-free, pared-down looks Chanel introduced to women in the mid-teens, forever changing our style of dress.
