The Ralph Lauren Polo Bear is back and features prominently in the designer’s Holiday Collection of stunning, opulent occasionwear. Trust us when we say that your wish-list is about to double in size after witnessing this classic combination of playful, festive designs with the timeless charm of the Ralph Lauren label.
Throughout the women’s collection, there are subtle nods to the history of the Polo brand which you can clearly see in the Flag Cotton Sweater, a real favourite of ours that is heritage inspired, unmistakably Polo and perfect for pairing with jeans for effortless, timeless style.
The trademark Black Watch tartan also appears in various incarnations throughout the collection but our favourite is this Merino Wool-Blend Coat that is a blend of boy-meets-girl style that is signature of Polo Ralph Lauren.
If you’re feeling bold and brave this season, however, Ralph Lauren has got you covered with this incredible, fearless Cotton Madras Tartan Blazer and matching Madras Pant. Or, if you’re looking for something a little more playful, how about this Polo Bear Sweater featuring the iconic Polo Bear in a tuxedo, of course.
If the occasion calls for something a little softer though, we love this delicate and feminine Striped Poplin Blouse and this cosy Beaded Nordic Sweater that oozes a cosy quality that is unique to the festive season and fitting for an afternoon spent beside the fire with the newspapers.
As for the men’s Holiday Collection, get ready for a combination of festive styles with everyday essentials and a cold weather colour palette. The classic plaids and tartans are given an autumnal update that brings that timeless Ralph Lauren charm to the collection’s shirts and outerwear while breathable cotton makes the classic Knit Oxford Shirt an everyday essential for every man.
Our favourite part of the collection though is the range of Iconic Polo Bear Sweaters that really take centre stage and feature the infamous Polo Bear in a selection of his own outfits and scenarios. Think tuxedo Polo Bear and skiing Polo Bear, surely the most appropriate for the holidays.
