Vogue on Ralph Lauren
Vogue on Designers is a new series of fashion books from British Vogue which tell the fascinating stories of iconic designers accompanied by world-class photographs and illustrations from the Vogue archive.
Like his career trajectory – from Bronx-born tie maker to foremost US designer and head of a multi-million-dollar brand – Ralph Lauren’s fashions embody the American Dream. His genius for interpreting key elements, from Navajo motifs to the preppie world of Hamptons’ socialites, and his visionary ability to capture the all-American lifestyle in glamorous, easy-to-wear designs has made that dream accessible. Vogue on Ralph Lauren celebrates his costumes for Hollywood and the red carpet – The Great Gatsby, Annie Hall, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Oscar-winner’s gown – as well as his tailored jackets, cashmere crewnecks and Oxford shirts: all beautiful passports to the world of Ralph Lauren.
British Vogue has charted the careers of designers through the decades. Its unique archive of photographs, taken by the leading photographers of the day from Cecil Beaton to Mario Testino, and original illustrations, together with its stable of highly respected fashion writers, make British Vogue the most authoritative and prestigious source of reference on fashion. With a circulation of over 160,000 and a readership of over 1,400,000, no brand is better positioned to present a library on the great fashion designers of the modern age.
