Polo Ralph Lauren Heritage
Ralph Lauren developed an eye for fashion at a young age. It all started with neckties. In school, Ralph Lauren would sell ties to his schoolmates and friends. Later, in 1966, he saw the famous actor Douglas Fairbanks Jr wear a European-style necktie. This inspired Lauren to alter the cut of the ties he designed. The company he worked for at the time, the men’s apparel store Brooks Brothers, did not share Lauren’s vision of the men’s tie, and so Lauren founded the Polo Ralph Lauren brand in 1967. Polo Ralph Lauren is the original Ralph Lauren brand.
In 1969, Lauren acquired his own boutique in Bloomingdale’s in Manhattan. In 1971, Ralph Lauren launched his first collection for women and opened his own store in Beverly Hills. Ten years later, in 1981, Ralph Lauren founded his first store in Europe, in London’s West End. This move turned the Polo Ralph Lauren brand into an international fashion phenomenon and would lead the way to world-wide fame.
Although many Ralph Lauren brands have been founded in the course of the years that followed the initial launch of Polo Ralph Lauren - including Polo Sport, Ralph, Ralph Lauren Black Label, Purple Label, and Blue Label, Club Monaco, and Chaps - the Polo brand continues to be the flagship brand of this world-famous fashion designer’s impressive portfolio.
