In September, during New York Fashion Week, the legendary Ralph Lauren celebrated 50 years.
Ralph Lauren had a singular vision that he steadfastly and unwaveringly focused and fine tuned. One of the greatest lessons I have learned from him, is to trust your instincts. Live in your truth. You truly have to believe in your vision and don’t let anyone or anything divert you.
Lifestyle brand is a buzz word thrown around these days. Never before and no one since has created a true lifestyle brand, like Ralph Lauren.
He doesn’t just create fashion; he is his own best brand ambassador. Genuine. Authentic.
Ralph Lauren understood his image, style, and name was also his reputation. My name and my style are the greatest assets of advertising, marketing, branding, and public relations.
Newness wears off quickly. I always find the best design includes carefully selected vintage and antique pieces to give soul, character, and a story to what could become sterile. Ralph Lauren has always understood this philosophy. When it comes to his own personal style, and the design and decoration of his stores, there are always vintage pieces integrated in the most sophisticated manner.
Successful design doesn’t always mean the most expensive. Ralph Lauren is the king of high and low. It is the quality of how they are curated together to achieve an overall statement room.
