This season’s top looks for men show the breadth of the brand that spans gentleman’s haberdashery to an adventurer’s outfitter. The offerings show a depth of modernity, understated ease, rugged mixed with refined, and a signature sense of cool. There is a thorough recognition of the art of dressing.
Fair Isle sweaters are treated with incredible designs and colours, chunky sculpted sweaters and luxurious cable cashmeres highlight the quality of craft inherent to Polo. Signature washed-plaid shirts enjoy a renaissance in traditional sporting hues.
A featherweight three-piece suede suit ( 2nd left in below image) stands with versions in faded denim and heritage cord (far right in below image) , and fine tailored elements are paired with dark, refined denim jeans. The important suiting includes narrower silhouettes, softer shoulders, and a modern versatility that comes with iconic tweed, plaid and herringbone jackets innovatively crafted as deconstructed and unlined. A further polished look comes from ties in traditional Polo prints and patterns, special details such as leather buttons, bellow pockets and suede trim on sleeves and under-collars.
Polo Sport for men enhances its technical focus with full revved-up outfitting, including a running jacket with a reflective camouflage pattern and pullover hoodie with a cold-weather running mask, as well as offering the most luxurious après-sport cashmere sweaters and pants, and shearling jackets.
Surplus-inspired chinos evoke a laid-back life outdoors, while new dark-washed super-slim jeans fit the dressed-down workday and weekend in the city. Joggers are paired with jackets for downtown edge. Pants are lighter and with stretch for comfort.
The classic sartorial sportcoat has been spun into a new instant icon: a sweaterlike, unconstructed jacket, perfect for the on-the-go guy.
“What’s exciting to me right now is the look of new traditionalism. It’s an authentic way of dressing with an individual, counter-culture style that is the foundation of my Polo brand. It’s cool and confident—dressed-up without losing its ease and originality,” Ralph Lauren said.
The presentation was attended by musician Ciara, American footballer Russell Wilson and actresses Camilla Belle and Emma Roberts.
