Ralph Lauren has announced that he will show his spring 2016 men's Purple Label collection on June 20 during Milan Men's Fashion Week. The iconic American designer will also be joining the schedule for New York Fashion Week: Men's in July, and presenting his Polo Ralph Lauren collection during the inaugural event.

The news marks a significant moment for the brand, who have been absent from the menswear schedules for years.

"Showing our Purple Label Collection in Milan has even more significance presented within the special environment of our palazzo. It perfectly captures the sophistication and refinement of the brand," said Ralph Lauren.
