Polo by Ralph Lauren
Polo by Ralph Lauren, American clothing brand, founded by fashion designer Ralph Lauren in 1967. The self-thought fashion designer who was born in 1939 in the Bronx, New York City, started his fashion career as a shop assistant and buyer in different department stores before he designed a handmade tie collection for Beau Brummel in 1967. Its immediate success encouraged Lauren to start his own menswear collection Polo by Ralph Lauren one year later. Based in Midtown Manhattan, he launched his first womenswear collection and his first standalone store in Beverly Hills, California in 1971. As of 2009, Polo Ralph Lauren is one of the largest retailers in the United States. The luxury lifestyle company specializes in high-end casual wear for both women and men, accessories, furniture and fragrances.
