Mr Porter is helping Ralph Lauren celebrate its 50th birthday in style.

The luxury retailer has teamed up with the American heritage brand on a capsule menswear collection that revisits some of the label's signature pieces, Ralph Lauren announced in a press release.

“I’ve always believed one could live many lives through the way we dress," US designer Lauren said. "This collection reflects many of my inspirations and offers different ways of self-expression. The world is open to us, and each day is an occasion to reinvent ourselves.”

Toby Bateman, managing director of Mr Porter, added:  "This unique collection reflects the DNA of each of the Ralph Lauren brands - Polo, RRL and Purple Label – and takes direct inspiration from the archives."

The collection, which will launch online on October 15, spans ready-to-wear, footwear and accessories, with highlights including tuxedo jackets, leather hiking boots and a military coat.

The move comes weeks after Ralph Lauren staged a catwalk extravaganza to mark its milestone anniversary during New York Fashion Week back in September. It has been a big year for the US creative, who was honored with the Members Salute at the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards this June, as an acknowledgement of his contribution to the fashion industry.
