There is perhaps no more iconic American designer than Ralph Lauren. My love affair of all thing Ralph Lauren started back when I was in elementary in the mid 80s, my dad sent my sister and I purple Ralph Lauren polo shirts and a pair of either Jordache jeans or was it Sergio Valente jeans. Now back in the day everyone wanted a Ralph Lauren polo shirt and my sister and I were the only kids at Manazanita Elementary School in Oakland, California rocking real RL polo shirts, and all our friends where inspecting our polo shirts to see if that iconic polo logo was there in the upper left side.
Today I am looking back at my most memorable and inspiring Ralph Lauren ad campaigns and how this classic sportswear brand has evolved over the decades. Enjoy and Be Inspired!
No one does safari chic quite like Ralph Lauren.
There is nothing that epitomizes the American way of life better than Ralph Lauren. Since its birth in 1971, the brand has provided us, year after year, with iconic images through their campaigns of what it would be like to live the American Dream.
'From native Indian inspiration in the 80s to the power suit and minimalism of the 90s, its advertising photographs are instantly recognizable through its aesthetics and sensibility. Friend and photographer Bruce Weber was behind many of these campaigns, which featured unknown models but also tops and celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Ubah Hassan, Gisele Bundchen, Claudia Schiffer or Penelope Cruz."
Some of my most memorable Ralph Lauren ad campaigns and editorials are safari inspired style themes; "safari chic" and romance, travel, wanderlust, and adventure which were always stylish, polished and balanced and redefining American style.
