A site exclusive
This year marks Ralph Lauren's 50th year in business, no small feat for any fashion brand and a well-earned milestone for one of America's most revered designers. To celebrate, Ralph held a huge runway and afterparty during New York Fashion Week and now, he is releasing an exclusive capsule collection on Mr Porter.
The collection is called 'The World of Ralph Lauren' and is comprised of 83 pieces that span the designer's three in-house labels: Polo Ralph Lauren, Ralph Lauren Purple Label and RRL. It is the first time the designer has released a capsule collection that includes all three.
From today you can shop a selection of ready-to-wear pieces as well as accessories and footwear, with many of the styles celebrating the brand's heritage of craftsmanship and style. The complete capsule offers men an edited wardrobe of wearable and timeless classics.
According to a release, the Polo Ralph Lauren offering delivers shoppers "48 iconic pieces such as classic plain and striped polos, Oxford-collar shirts with embroidered crests, herringbone jackets and long-sleeved rugby shirts" whilst the 19 Purple Label pieces consist of "tuxedo jackets, cashmere knitwear, leather hiking boots and a green double-breasted military coat." Finally, there are 16 pieces from RRL ranging from "luxury shearling jackets [to] washed denim jeans, plaid shirts and signature accessories."
Speaking of the collection, Ralph Lauren said, "I've always believed one could live many lives through the way we dress. This collection reflects many of my inspirations and offers different ways of self-expression. The world is open to us and each day is an occasion to reinvent ourselves."
The collection is now available to shop on Mr Porter.
