PRESERVING HISTORY: A longtime supporter of The East Hampton Historical Society, Ralph Lauren has now become a partner in the restoration of the Mulford Farm, including the Hedges Barn, in the Village of East Hampton, N.Y.
As part of the contribution, Lauren created a special East Hampton Historical Collection, including hooded sweaters, branded East Hampton Historical Society T-shirts, baseball caps and beach totes. The pieces will be available beginning Memorial Day at the Polo Ralph Lauren East Hampton store and at ralphlauren.com, and 50 percent of the purchase price of each item from the collection will benefit The East Hampton Historical Society.
