Paying Homage to Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren and his dynasty are celebrating 50 years of being in the business of creating a unique style that is so American: rustic, classic, and elegant all rolled into one.

Ralph, and his gorgeous wife Ricky have been the iconic style couple who make dressing well seem effortless.

It’s hard not to become nostalgic thinking about the fashion trends that have been spirited through this man’s empire. Think bold colored jeans and contrasting polo t-shirts with oversized logos - how did polos get this sexy?

I have many fond RL memories, from dining in some of his iconic restaurants: Chicago, New York and Paris, to shopping in his beautiful boutiques. Here in New York they roll out the red carpet for you. Champagne is served and visiting dogs drink from silver water bowls. This adds to the ambiance of a fun shopping experience.
