“For the first time, I bring my dream of living to California, celebrating a way of life that I have always believed in - a mix of grit and glamour, energy and inspiration,” the designer said.

It was only right the show was presented in the Golden State. Ralph Lauren used landmarks in San Marino, just outside of Los Angeles, as the backdrop. Which proved to be the perfect canvas to showcase the collection of dreams: elevated, modern yet always timeless. We can assure you this collection will see you through this summer and beyond.
