MR PORTER TO LAUNCH THE WORLD OF RALPH LAUREN EXCLUSIVE COLLECTION
MR PORTER, the award-winning online destination for men’s style, in collaboration with leading American fashion house Ralph Lauren, is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of an exclusive capsule collection, available from 15 October at both MR PORTER and global flagship Ralph Lauren stores.
The exclusive launch celebrates the 50th anniversary of Ralph Lauren’s debut menswear collection in 1968.
Spanning 83 pieces, the exclusive collection encompasses styles from three of Ralph Lauren’s renowned brands: Polo Ralph Lauren, Ralph Lauren Purple Label and RRL.
This is Ralph Lauren’s first exclusive capsule collection across all three brands. The special collection consists of ready-to-wear, accessories and footwear. It draws inspiration from Ralph Lauren’s extensive archive over the past 50 years and celebrates some of its best and most iconic pieces.
⦁ Polo Ralph Lauren has always been synonymous with quintessential American sportswear and style and is reflected in the exclusive collection with 48 iconic pieces, such as classic plain and striped polos, Oxford-collar shirts with embroidered crests, herringbone jackets and long-sleeved rugby shirts.
⦁ The prestigious Purple Label, which made its debut in 1994, is the ultimate expression of Mr Lauren’s vision for an aspirational lifestyle. Embracing luxurious tailoring alongside casual pieces defined by plush fabrics and fine craftsmanship, the 19-piece Purple Label collection includes such standout pieces as tuxedo jackets, cashmere knitwear, leather hiking boots and a green double-breasted military coat.
⦁ The 16-piece RRL collection features classic American West and 1900s workwear inspired by Mr Lauren’s Colorado ranch. Key pieces include luxury shearling jackets, washed-denim jeans, plaid shirts and signature accessories, such as a pair of brown lace-up boots, a leather belt and silver cuff.
“Anyone with even a small interest in men’s clothing will appreciate the giant influence that Mr Ralph Lauren has made to the way men dress today. Known for defining American style, 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 – and everyone in between. This unique collection reflects the DNA of each of the Ralph Lauren brands – Polo, RRL and Purple Label – and takes direct inspiration from the archives. We are proud to be part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations by presenting our customers with this special collaboration.”

“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.”
