There's no doubt that Pride Week has brought festive feeling to the West Village, especially with Marc Jacobs' contribution, but we're left a little confused by the window of the Ralph Lauren Men store on Bleecker.
There is no doubt that the window says "I kiss boys," but is it a pride week thing or just being cutesy, as we'd guess from the lipstick kiss? And if it's just cutesy, then what's the occasion? Behind the glass, it's your typical preppy Ralph display. Don't be afraid to embrace Pride Week, Ralph; Sunday brings the Pride March very near to Bleecker and people might just be in a polo-purchasing mood.
