Ralph Lauren Spring

Ralph Lauren is one of my favorite American Designers. My favorite white shorts purchased years ago cost $50.00 and I wore them until the seat and fabric couldn't bear one more washing. Here we are in 2011 and Ralph's net worth is 4.6 Billion dollars. He has created a lifestyle for fashion as well for himself that most of us only dream about. Here is his Spring Collection and a look at Ralph's interior fashion. Love the combination of sparkle of plaid and leather.

In 1970, Ralph Lauren won the COTY Award for his menswear line. Around that same time he released a line of women's suits that were tailored in a classic men's style, which was when the first Polo emblem was seen. It was on the cuff of the women's suit. Ralph Lauren released Polo's famous short sleeve mesh shirt with the Polo logo in 1972. It came out in 24 colors and soon became a classic.[13] He also gained recognition for his design after he was contracted to provide clothing styles for the movie The Great Gatsby.



 Polo Ralph Lauren became a public company, traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol RL.  By 2007 Ralph Lauren had over 35 boutiques in the United States. There were 23 locations that carried Ralph Lauren Purple Label, including Atlanta, Beverly Hills, Boston, Charlotte, Wisconsin Avenue, Chicago, Costa Mesa, Dallas, Denver, Honolulu, Houston, Las Vegas, Manhasset, New York, Palm Beach, Palo Alto, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Short Hills, and Troy.
In 2010, Ralph Lauren was decorated Chevalier de la Legion d'honneur by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, in Paris.
