About this deal

Lauren is known for capitalizing on an aspirational style and key insignia which evokes the British gentry while also referencing the aesthetics of the American upper class. His fashion ideas have been criticized by some for not being particularly innovative while also embraced by scores of consumers who prefer more approachable looks. Lauren subsequently broadened his brand to include a luxury clothing line known as Ralph Lauren Purple, a rough and rustic line of apparel dubbed RRL, a home-furnishing collection called Ralph Lauren Home and a set of fragrances. Polo currently produces clothing for men, women and children and has hundreds of internationally placed stores, including factory stores that produce the majority of his sales domestically.

I believe in clothes that last, that are not dated in a season. The people who wear my clothes don't think of them as fashion. Once the top notes wear off, it's an inobtrusive and undemanding scent, so much so that I don't really have a strong opinion about it either way. It doesn't appeal to me personally — I like a little more attitude myself — but I'd call it very wearable, and I'm sure it will find plenty of fans.

In 1970, Lauren was awarded the Coty Award for his men's designs. Following this recognition, he released a line of women's suits tailored in a classic men's style. Then in 1972, Lauren released a short-sleeve cotton shirt in 24 colors. This design, emblazoned with the company's famed logo—that of a polo player, created by tennis pro René Lacoste—became the brand’s signature look. It definitely doesn't evoke in me the thrill and charm of the era and the characters it's suppose to represent. Those ladies had a spine, this perfume is ordinary and can't stand its ground. Nice thought, wrong scent. Shame! Fun Fact:: After some digging it appears the the above mentioned actresses wore the following fragrances:

At the age of 16, Ralph and his brother Jerry changed their last name to Lauren after having been teased consistently at school. Another brother, Lenny, retained the family name. Ralph was known for his distinctive fashion sense as a teen, finding inspiration in screen icons like Fred Astaire and Cary Grant while having a taste for both classic preppy wear and vintage looks. He went on to attend Baruch College in Manhattan, where he studied business for two years. After a brief stint in the Army, Lauren took on a sales job at Brooks Brothers. Developing an International BrandDescribed as a “daring new fragrance of timeless intrigue and boundless desire”, Notorious was inspired by the sexy, mysterious, self-possessed women of the golden age of film glamour, such as Ingrid Bergman, Lauren Bacall and Faye Dunaway.* Decades later, Lauren would be enamored by a show that wholeheartedly reflects his particular vision, the PBS series Downton Abbey. He subsequently created a fall collection inspired by the show and sponsored its final season in 2016. Stepping Aside as CEO American luxury is about a sensibility and an approach to life. It's about developing the world you see in your imagination and using that to create an environment of comfort and ease. During the 1970s, Lauren made his foray into the film business as well, further cementing his status as a classic American designer by outfitting cast members for the 1974 film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. Lauren also received credit for helping to outfit the cast of 1975's The Wild Party, another early 20th-century outing starring James Coco and Raquel Welch. The designer then became well known for Diane Keaton's rather distinctive looks in the 1977 comedy Annie Hall. I was always inspired by those kind of prep-school people and their clothes. By classic things, by the way those people looked and dressed. Maybe because I didn't have it, I always reached for it.

Marlene Dietrich: Bandit - Fracas - Tabac Blond - Creed Angelique Encense (which was made for her.) - Indiscret Lelong - Vol de Nuit.Best Known For: Ralph Lauren is an American clothing designer best known for his sportswear line Polo Ralph Lauren, the centerpiece of his fashion empire. My father, people say he was a house painter, but he wasn’t. He painted houses when he couldn’t get a job. But he was an artist. Life wasn’t easy with four children so he did what he had to do.
