Ralph Lauren's collections are frequently inspired by the places he spends time, and what with all the bull-fighting garb in his Spring 2013 line, we're guessing he has just come back from a trip somewhere in the Spanish Pyrenees. Black, white, and crimson ruled the color theme, while gold embroidery shouted "ole!" from the accessories. Gilded boleros, severe belts, and matador hats were a departure from the Americana Lauren is best known for, but it's fun to see him add a little fiesta to his repertoire. Go get your "Bambaleo" on after the jump.
