The term iconic is often overused to describe a person or creation however it is more than fitting to describe Ralph Lauren in such a way. Celebrating 50 years of the man, the label and the vision that started with ties (taking private school and university colours and patterns, then selling them back to a wealthy customer under the guise of ‘preppy’) which has now expanded to a multi-billion dollar brand. So how do you celebrate a Golden Anniversary in the fashion world? For Ralph Lauren, it includes a mammoth show in New York attended by America’s elite; a celebration of their archive within the stores and this; an 83 piece collection across three of the labels; Purple, Polo and RRL at Mr Porter.
