I love everything about this china, from the way it looks to the way it feels. It was designed by Ralph Lauren; the toast of the fashion world this week as he celebrates 40 years in the industry. He credits his success to hard work and doing what he loves, adding "What I do is about living. It is about living the best life you can and enjoying the fullness of the life around you--from what you wear, to the way you live, to the way you love." And it shows. Bravo, Mr. Lauren.
