The anniversary collection is inspired by the fashion house’s extensive archive over the past 50 years and celebrates some of its most iconic pieces. Comprising of ready-to-wear, accessories and footwear, this is Ralph Lauren’s first exclusive capsule collection across its brands Polo Ralph Lauren, Ralph Lauren Purple Label and RRL.

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.
