After a decade of streetwear’s dominance and a few years of life in mostly leisurewear, tailoring has re-emerged as one of the breakout stars in recent years. Shoppers from all along the stylistic spectrum have reacquainted themselves with suited-and-booted classics, giving new relevance to old-school swagger. Refashioning styles of yesteryear has long been Ralph Lauren’s speciality and now, he’s meeting the current moment with a new collection that doubles down on vintage-inflected elegance.
For Fall/Winter 2022, Polo Ralph Lauren features a new range of canonical designs that pay homage to historical references Lauren loves: natty English tailoring, tweedy hunting gear, Ivy Style sportswear. The designer looked to his archives, cherry-picking his greatest hits and subtly fine-tuning them while upping the luxe ante with pedigreed textiles. More than a conventional collection, Polo Ralph Lauren highlights an assortment of timeless garments rendered with a reverence for tradition. In other words, the kind of staples for which you’ll be reaching for years to come.
