The World of Ralph Lauren Comes to Life in California in a Special Fashion Experience
Showcases the Spring 2023 collections in Southern California, for the first time
LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK — October 13, 2022 — Ralph Lauren will present the Spring 2023 collections with a special World of Ralph Lauren fashion experience in Southern California, for the first time. With casual elegance and effortless sophistication, Ralph Lauren’s inspiration reflects the multifaceted lifestyles of the West Coast —where the worlds of sport, Western, prep and understated luxury are intertwined with his personal design sensibility always rooted in the spirit of optimism.
“I have always been inspired by the natural beauty, the heritage, and glamour of the West Coast of America. California has always been a land of dreams and contradictions — rugged coasts and red carpets. For the first time ever, I bring my dream of living here, sharing my worlds in an experience that celebrates a way of life I have always believed in — a mix of grit and glamour, energy and inspiration,” Ralph Lauren, Chief Creative Officer, Ralph Lauren Corporation.
The experience will include an expansive runway show and elegant seated dinner set against the spectacular backdrop of The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California — an internationally renowned collections-based nonprofit institution that supports and promotes the humanities, the arts and botanical science.
Presenting the full breadth of the World of Ralph Lauren, the runway experience will showcase the luxury and craftsmanship of Collection and Purple Label, mixed with the rugged attitude of Double RL, the youthful and irreverent spirit of Polo Ralph Lauren and charming Childrenswear. The presentation features more than 100 models from multiple generations and families, including iconic faces from the brand’s formative years and of-the-moment models.
From signature cocktails on a beautiful loggia to a candlelit dinner overlooking a garden of roses, every detail will reflect a quintessentially Ralph Lauren expression of living. Guests will dine alfresco, enjoying a classically American menu featuring Mr. Lauren’s favorites from The Polo Bar in New York. Dinner will be set with chic floral, ticking stripe and batik fabrics in a palette of blue and white that pair with delicate porcelain and crystal, natural brass hurricanes and romantic bouquets of garden flowers, adding a sense of charm to the sophisticated evening.
The intimate experience will also be made available to consumers worldwide through a live stream on Ralph Lauren’s global social media platforms and RalphLauren.com.
