Mr. Porter, the award-winning online destination for men’s style, in collaboration with leading American fashion house Ralph Lauren, announces the launch of an exclusive capsule collection, on both Mr. Porter and global flagship Ralph Lauren stores. The exclusive launch celebrates the 50th anniversary of Ralph Lauren’s debut menswear collection in 1968.
Spanning eighty-three pieces, the exclusive collection encompasses styles from three of Ralph Lauren’s renowned brands: Polo Ralph Lauren, Ralph Lauren Purple Label and RRL. This is Ralph Lauren’s first exclusive capsule collection across all three brands. The special collection consists of ready-to-wear, accessories and footwear. It draws inspiration from Ralph Lauren’s extensive archive over the past fifty years and celebrates some of its best and most iconic pieces.
Polo Ralph Lauren has always been synonymous with quintessential American sportswear and style and is reflected in the exclusive collection with forty-eight iconic pieces, such as classic plain and striped polo’s, Oxford-collar shirts with embroidered crests, herringbone jackets and long-sleeved rugby shirts.

The prestigious Purple Label, which made its debut in 1994, is the ultimate expression of Mr Lauren’s vision for an aspirational lifestyle. Embracing luxurious tailoring alongside casual pieces defined by plush fabrics and fine craftsmanship, the nineteen-piece Purple Label collection includes such standout pieces as tuxedo jackets, cashmere knitwear, leather hiking boots and a green double-breasted military coat.
The sixteen-piece RRL collection features classic American West and 1900s workwear inspired by Mr Lauren’s Colorado ranch. Key pieces include luxury shearling jackets, washed-denim jeans, plaid shirts and signature accessories, such as a pair of brown lace-up boots, a leather belt and silver cuff.
“Anyone with even a small interest in men’s clothing will appreciate the giant influence that Mr Ralph Lauren has made to the way men dress today. Known for defining American style, his collections resonate around the world with a diverse group of people, from kids who wear it as streetwear through to company execs in chalk striped suits- and everyone in between. This unique collection reflects the DNA of each of the Ralph Lauren brands; Polo, RRL and Purple Label- and takes direct inspiration from the archives. We are proud to be part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations by presenting our customers with this special collaboration”. States Mr Toby Bateman, Managing Director of Mr Porter.
