Rugby by Rugby Ralph Lauren catered to the minds of the collegiate, serving hip doses of prep that is edgier than traditional but still classic in various plaid and critter designs. The rock-and-roll Ivy League style of The Skulls proved itself to be very popular among college students and some even after graduation. Recently picked up by colette, the label’s footwear line for Fall/Winter 2009 gets a little inspirational doses not just from the heritage America but also the Native Americans. Included in the release are outdoor boots with a plaid upper marked by leather accents, topped with a water-resistant toe; also, the suede fringed ankle shoes, which reminds us very much of visvim’s Maliseet Elk Folk from this coming season, prove to be a fun variation from the collegiate inspired gear. A little dose of moccasin and work boots, Rugby is outdoor ready for fall and not just for the football field. Both shoes are now available online at colette.
