Polo Ralph Lauren is one of the most famous fashion brands in the world. The brand is a household name, and has only gone from strength to strength since it was first established over forty years ago. Ralph Lauren himself first established the brand in 1967 with his hugely successful collection of ties for men. Within two years, he had his own store in Bloomingdales in New York, meaning he was a phenomenal success. At about this time he also released a line of women’s suits that were cut in the style of men’s suits. The Polo sign that is still used today was first seen then on the cuff. Within the next two years, Ralph Lauren had designed and produced a huge line of women’s clothing, and his efforts were finally rewarded when he opened up his first store in California. By 1981, the brand had become so huge, it had reached London, and a shop opened in New Bond Street. By 1993, the range of Polo sportswear was introduced.
These days, Polo Ralph Lauren is the flagship of the company, and has over thirty five stores over the world in locations such as London, New York, Tokyo, Milan, Moscow, and, most recently, Paris. With boutique stores included, there are now over 600 places to buy Ralph Lauren collections.
Ralph Lauren has branched out from women’s wear and men’s wear to denim, children’s wear, baby clothing, shoes, fragrances, accessories, and furniture. The brand also has an incredible collection of home accessories, which include bed linen and sheets.
As a global brand and a top fashion designer, Ralph Lauren sheets are incredibly high-brow and high-quality. The sheets are difficult to find in the UK, so you might need to order them from the US. Be prepared to pay shipping costs. However, they are worth their weight in gold when they arrive. The colours are incredibly classy, and they are made with the utmost attention to detail, heavily influenced by cutting edge home style.
If you’re looking to deck out your bedroom in something phenomenally decadent, Ralph Lauren is the collection for you. The collections are particularly American ski lodge in style, with earthy tones. There is a choice from the Alpine Lodge collection, Tan Brentwood, Tan Palmer, Mercer Street, Santa Barbara, to name but a few. The cheapest collections start their pillowcases at about $95 for pillowcases. A throw cushion is around $100. The most expensive pillowcases start from $225, going up to nearly $1000 for a throw blanket. And don’t forget that there are always items available in the sales if the cost is a little out of your budget.
Despite the price tag, you’ll be sure to get excellent value for money and a top quality product for your buck. Most of the thread counts on the sheets are 400 Egyptian cotton. The great thing about the Ralph Lauren product is that it’s hard-wearing and classy. It will give your home a truly glamorous feel to it.
