PRESENTING RRL SS18: RALPH LAUREN'S AMERICANA COLLECTION
Not many brands make our L'Equipe the Nîmes so expectant as RRL. Every collection is inspired on vintage Americana, with Ralph Lauren still serving as the head honcho of the sub-label. What is so special about the brand: it repeatedly succeeds in delivering unique yet timeless pieces, that stand out in terms of quality and fabric. We hereby present the first drop of SS18, with context added by our menswear buyer Rudy Röss. Further, we accompanied this article by a long read on the brand.
RRL's Matlock Workshirt is an incredibly soft gabardine shirt. Gabardine is very densely woven fabric that was used for practical workwear in factories, invented by Thomas Burberry in 1897. The shirt is executed in a versatile blue colour. The shirts breathes heritage, with the double chest pocket and the absence of back pleats.
Most definitely worth a mention, are the Slim Fit Ridgway Jeans. RRL always surprises us with an accurate and precise re-working of a vintage pair of jeans. "Insane," according to Rudy, where he got attracted by the 'clear indigo shade'. The pair sports a series of hand-made repairs and will be a great addition to your jeans collection.
