Ralph Lauren’s affinity for the equestrian lifestyle—one of the inspirations behind the new Purple Label Fall 2019 collection—is deeply rooted in English heritage; in the elegant simplicity and timeless sportiness of tweed, worsted wool, and suede.
"It's not a mania for Englishness. It's a matter of integrity," Mr. Lauren once explained. "I like taking styles from the past and giving them new life. I like styles that are natural and that last—clothes with character."
