An unlikely cast of Hollywood royalty, fellow fashion designers, and A-list celebrities the likes of Steven Spielberg, Diane von Fürstenberg, Oprah Winfrey, Blake Lively, and Kanye West are all mingling in the same room – where are they? At the Ralph Lauren epic anniversary show in New York, of course. In September 2018, America’s most prominent luxury sportswear brand passed the 50-year mark, which called for a celebration that reflected the house’s deep roots and global influence.
As eye-popping as the guest list was, the milestone anniversary collection itself included some pretty spectacular fashion pieces, not the least of which has been climbing the “It” bag charts ever since it first appeared. Meet the Ralph Lauren ‘RL50’ bag, which has already garnered the candid appreciation of a stylish parade of celebrities. Coming in four different sizes, the now-“It” accessory sports a new iconic silhouette, which is derived from equestrian tradition, fine leather craftsmanship, and inspiration drawn from the brand’s own vintage travel bag.
While celebrities like Priyanka Chopra and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have found it to be both excellent for functional purposes and the ultimate complement to sleek daywear ensembles, it hadn’t been available to the public – until now. Finally, the ‘RL50’ can be purchased starting this month at Ralph Lauren global flagship stores, RalphLauren.com, and exclusive wholesale partners.
