Mr Porter exclusive three-part capsule collection celebrates half a century of the visionary American designer.

In the first deliverance, we have Corey Baptiste–teaching us how-to-be-a-good-model– is photographed by Christopher Ferguson.

A styling by Mr Dan May–Contributing Fashion Editor, Mr Porter presenting Cotton cashmere sweaters, wool suit jackets, slim fit shirts, corduroy trousers all about among others.

To mark the occasion, MR PORTER has created an exclusive 83-piece capsule collection that features some of the greatest hits from the three main men’s brands – Polo Ralph Lauren, RRL and Ralph Lauren Purple Label – and asked three of the brand’s past and current faces to take it all for a spin.

The exclusive collection, which is modeled here by Mr Corey Baptiste, includes some of Polo’s most recognizable motifs.

Expect herringbone tweed suits, striped blazers, collegiate ties, Fair Isle vests and more, all intended to be worn in the brand’s signature thrown-together style.

The brand that started it all, Polo was originally known as Polo by Ralph Lauren and was limited to a collection of neck ties sold at department stores Beau Brummel and, later, Bloomingdale’s in New York City.

Even now, a year shy of his 80th birthday, Mr Lauren’s influence continues to loom large over the company that bears his name. This consistency of vision over such a long period of time ensures he is one of a small number of living designers who can truly be described as iconic.
