Dubai: In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Ralph Lauren Purple Label, the brand looks to its most iconic references and collections, reimagining each for Fall 2020 as a new expression of the pinnacle of style – impeccably crafted from exclusive Italian fabrics with a dedication to the finest details that have been the hallmark of the brand since its founding.
The 25th Anniversary collection is headlined by a reissued capsule of tailored looks from the `90s inspired by Mr. Lauren’s personal suitings and his love of sartorial English tailoring. These pieces feature his signature suit silhouette: strong, broad-shouldered with wide lapels balanced by a contoured waist, shorter length, and lower button stance. The new Ralph Suits are recreated in the original English fabrics and patterns, hand-picked and styled by Mr. Lauren exactly the way he would wear them, in pattern-on-pattern combinations of classic chalk-stripes, houndstooths, and glen plaids and a range of sophisticated heathers and solid blacks.
“I’ve always believed in the art of fine tailoring. Before I started my own company I had my suits custom-made. I wanted the fit and construction to have the integrity of old-world craftsmanship yet remain soft and supple, natural and comfortable. For Purple Label’s 25th anniversary, I wanted to recreate that tailored style I’ve always believed in – from the cut of the suit and the original fabrics
to the mix of patterns in the shirt, the tie and other accessories. Purple Label to me is more than just beautiful clothing, it reflects the personal style of the wearer and a way of living inspired by timeless quality,” said Mr. Lauren.
The collection’s eveningwear offering transforms the tuxedo into an array of silhouettes from the Ralph Lauren archive, while Sportswear for fall seamlessly blends with tailoring in a rich palette of charcoal, brown, navy, and olive, drawing inspiration from Mr. Lauren’s personal car and motorcycle collection.
