VOGUE ON RALPH LAUREN
A completely fresh look at Ralph Lauren whose designs vividly embody the American Dream and have been translated into ready-to-wear signatures for almost 50 years. From his ubiquitous Polo Ralph Lauren shirts with their much-imitated equestrian logo to his American country-club take on upperclass Englishness, this book examines his skill in making aspiration accessible to all.
”Remember Christy Turlington and Naomi Campbell beaming in their glittering Ralph Lauren tunic tops? Or when the designer dressed Diane Keaton in cult Woody Allen film Annie Hall? The book relives Lauren's most famous moments throughout his lengthy career, and explains how he paved the way for relaxed American style.”
”A very enjoyable account of Ralph Lauren's career. I love his mixing of fabrics and styles. Inspiring for anyone interested in trying out his ideas. Also, he comes across as a really decent guy.”
