“As a kid, I played sandlot baseball and didn’t know a designer’s name,” Ralph Lauren recalled on his childhood.
Growing up in the Bronx, the American designer idolized baseball looking up to iconic Yankee players like Mickey Mantle. Lauren grew up in the golden age of baseball where he attended games regularly and played stickball near the Yankee Stadium. As a loyal fan, Lauren first introduced the sport as part of the house for its 50th anniversary collection where Lauren tapped the Yankees in a series of sleep hats and bomber jackets (not to mention, threw the first pitch at Yankee Stadium). Now, with the baseball season on our minds and sports arenas opening back up, Lauren is back for another collaboration for Polo to show support for your favorite team this baseball season.
The sport continues to be a part of the Polo design legacy with the house’s latest collaboration with the Major League Baseball with a multi-team collection featuring the New York Yankees, L.A. Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox. The unisex limited edition capsule gives a rendition on American sports apparel including sweatshirts, jackets, caps, Polos, crewnecks, and Polo bear gear for adults and children. The collection utilizes iconic team colorways as well as new tones imagined in the quality and refined classics that represents Ralph Lauren and Polo: navy and white for the Yankees, red and blue for the Cubs, and white and blue for the Dodgers.
Lauren is making a lasting impact on American sportswear with this new addition to his past sporting collaborations such as: the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams, the Championships, Wimbledon, U.S. Ryder Cup team, the U.S. Open Golf Championship, and the American Junior Golf Association. That Bronx childhood playing stickball never left Lauren’s heart after he made a donation of million to preserve the Star-Spangled Banner at the Smithsonian in 2014. In an effort to merge heritage and fashion, Lauren’s latest collaboration is added to a long line of his efforts as a pioneer of blending American culture and exceptional style.
