Imported from USA
Ralph Lauren isn’t easy to define. Unlike many designers, he is not known for a single signature look, but rather for
his sweeping dreams of American living. Over the course of his career, the images of luxury, adventure, and beauty that
he created have come to define American style. In this visually stunning book, Lauren speaks candidly for the first time
ever about himself and his art. In part one, we get to know the designer through never-before-seen pictures of him in
private life and with his family, living the lives he designs for. In his own words, we hear about his life, work, and
inspiration. In the second part, Lauren displays and writes about his most important, most iconic, and most beloved
work, hand-picked from hundreds of runway shows, collections, and his signature cinematic advertising campaigns.
Lauren’s aesthetic influence and unique design sensibility are captured here by fashion’s finest photographers,
including Bruce Weber, Deborah Turbeville, and Patrick Demarchelier. Featuring an introduction by Audrey Hepburn (from
her 1992 presentation speech at the CFDA awards), this is truly a unique fashion monograph, a personal expression of the
artist, and a rare peek into the mind of one of America’s most accomplished fashion designers of all times.
