The RRL brand is something we cannot be objective about. The brand is so connected to the Tenue de Nîmes principles we will always take great care of it. We also do because we know that Mr. Ralph Lauren is personally involved in selecting shops that may tell this personal part of his legacy. The RRL sub-line was founded in 1993, but has its roots in the 80s.
During this decade, Ralph Lauren released his Sante Fe collection, and acquired his famous ranch named RRL in Ridgway, Colorado. During the 80s and 90s, the Santa Fe collection was continued as Polo Country Collection, producing some of the most interesting pieces the label has ever created: indigo pea coats, sweaters in Aztec prints and denim fire jackets. With the knowledge from now: a clear predecessor of the RRL brand. Growing up in a poor neighbourhood in New York, surrounded by hardware and army shops Ralph Lauren has always be inspired by what he refers to as ‘real clothes’. As of today, the RRL brand stands for this real American traditional clothing, crafted to the highest standards available in the market. For every single piece, it is a journey to find the manufacturer and fabric that is most eligible for the task to create a piece of garment that becomes more beautiful every time you wear it.
