Kathleen Baird-Murray: 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.
