The luxury brand was founded in 1967 by American businessman Ralph Lauren. His sense of colour and shape was quite possibly inherited from his father, who was a passionate painter. Polo Ralph Lauren’s headquarters are located in no other than the fashion metropolis of New York.
Initially, the company designed and manufactures neck ties, but in 1972 it began to gain increasing recognition. Polo Ralph Lauren’s polo shirts for men are still exceedingly popular today and have become the label’s trademark. The very first international store opened in London in 1981 and can still be found in New Bond Street. In 1987, the brand extended to include a golf-fashion collection. The name Polo by Ralph Lauren is synonymous with elegant, stylish and high-quality fashion and accessories.
Films have always played an important role in the Ralph Lauren design process and the brand made a name for itself in the industry. For example, the label was involved in the costume design for "The Great Gatsby" by Jack Clayton and the classic “Annie Hall” with Woody Allen. Ralph Lauren is established at most prestigious sporting events; it acts as a supplier to Wimbledon, and has dressed the U.S. Olympic team. A refined brand logo, consisting of a polo player who exudes grandeur and sportiness adds kudos to the brand image.
Polo Ralph Lauren is known worldwide and has boutiques across the world, ranging from Latin America to Europe and Asia to Australia. Flagship stores are located in New York, Chicago, Paris, London, Greenwich, Moscow, Tokyo and Milan. In addition to its fashion collections, Polo Ralph Lauren also offers leather goods, fragrances, cosmetics, accessories and even furniture.
Italian company Luxottica, the world’s largest eyewear manufacturer, holds the licence for the label’s sunglasses collection. Polo Ralph Lauren’s glasses and sunglasses impress with their elegant design and stylish colour combinations, and are available in the Mister Spex online shop. They are a perfect fit for every outfits and complete your look. Polo Ralph Lauren demonstrates an unmistakable sense of style for men and women.
