NEW YORK — Ralph Lauren and Polo are synonymous. It’s surprising, then, that Lauren has never offered women’s under the Polo moniker, but that’s set to change. Today, the designer will kick off his fall runway show by unveiling about 25 looks from the new women’s Polo Ralph Lauren brand, which is making its debut for fall.
Lauren mulled the pros and cons of showing Polo and Collection on one runway for some time, but decided in favor of it because, as he put it, “I love the contrast of Polo’s cool eclectic spirit with the luxury and modern glamour of Collection.” His fall Collection show will follow the Polo runway launch.
