Mr Porter And Ralph Lauren Launch Capsule Collection
The luxury retailer has teamed up with the American heritage brand on a capsule menswear collection that revisits some of the label's signature pieces. "This collection reflects many of my inspirations and offers different ways of self-expression," American designer Ralph Lauren said. "The world is open to us, and each day is an occasion to reinvent ourselves."
"His collections resonate around the world with a diverse group of people, from kids who wear it as streetwear through to company execs in chalk striped suits," added Toby Bateman, managing director of Mr Porter. "This unique collection reflects the DNA of each of the Ralph Lauren brands, and takes direct inspiration from the archives."
The collection, which will launch online on October 15, spans ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories, with highlights including tuxedo jackets, leather hiking boots, and a military coat.
The move comes weeks after Ralph Lauren staged a catwalk extravaganza to mark its milestone anniversary during New York Fashion Week back in September. It has been a big year for the US creative, who was honored with the Members Salute at the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards this June, as an acknowledgment of his contribution to the fashion industry.
