Rugby Ralph Lauren's Fall Preview Video Takes Us On A Scenic Tour Of Princeton

There's no better way to spend the early days of fall than with friends on a grassy quad tossing a frisbee or football — or maybe just dreaming of lazing the day away while you're actually at work. Whatever the case, the video supplement to Rugby Ralph Lauren's fall '12 collection has captured that early autumn haze to a T. The perfectly preppy styling and nubby-but-luxe fabrics look ripped from the pages of "Take Ivy," offering a snapshot of ambling collegiate ambience through a mid-century lens.
Shot amid the monumental Gothic buildings on Princeton's idyllic campus, Rugby's stunning co-eds hit the Lake Carnegie for a foggy-morning crew practice, toss the ol' pigskin, and bond over billiards at an eating club. And take a stylish hint: Emulate their patched sweaters and mix-'n'-match plaids for a casually classic fall. It'll guarantee you an A+ in Collegiate Style 101, no matter your age.
