Ralph Lauren started The Ralph Lauren Corporation in 1967 with men’s ties. At 28 years old, Lauren worked for the tie manufacturer, Beau Brummell. He persuaded the company’s president to let him start his own line. Drawing on his interests in sports, Lauren named his first full line of menswear ‘Polo’ in 1968. He worked out of a single “drawer” from a showroom in the Empire State Building and made deliveries to stores himself.
By 1969, the Manhattan department store Bloomingdale’s sold Lauren’s men line exclusively. It was the first time that Bloomingdale’s had given a designer his own in-store shop. In 1971, Ralph Lauren Corporation launched a line of tailored shirts for women, which introduced the Polo player emblem, appearing on the shirt cuff. The first full women’s collection was launched the following year.
In 1978, the mid-range Chaps line was launched as well as the first Ralph Lauren fragrances, Lauren for women, and Polo the men’s cologne. This was the first time that a designer introduced two fragrances – one for men and one for women – simultaneously.
The company entered the European market, and went international, in 1981 with the opening of the first freestanding store in the West End of London, England.
On May 17, 2017, Ralph Lauren named Patrice Louvet President and CEO.
