Ralph Lauren Introduces the CP-93 Collection

Not every collection deserves a closer review or analysis. However, when you come across something that is off-beat or has nostalgia attached to it, you cannot help but spread the word. Such is the case with Ralph Lauren’s newly introduced CP-93 collection. It is believed to be a modern re-interpretation of sailing-inspired designs from the early ‘90s of the luxury fashion house. Those designs became iconic in their period and are still remembered by many. The CP-93 collection relives the nostalgia. The collection largely focuses on clothes for men, but also offers women, boys, and girls wear.Ralph Lauren's iconic summer 1993 collection was laced with the undying spirit of competitive sailing. Same can be said for the CP-93 collection, for instance there is a Polo shirt in the collection that has smooth interlock along with thick, colorful stripes that is on the lines of twisted nautical flag motifs present in the original collection. Well, the sailors can relate to it better!Modern man’s lifestyle is dynamic. They are always on the go, moving from the workplace to the cocktail hour one moment then almost everywhere the next moment. That calls for a timeless collection.The collection is presented as versatile and timeless by the house. The shirt has a roomiest silhouette, comes with a cut for a lower armhole. Also, available with a fuller sleeve falling closer to the elbow. The other shirts in the collection are available in Slim Fit, Custom Fit, and Medium sizes.For the uninitiated Polo Ralph Lauren carries the essence of modern American sportswear. The brand’s Polo Pony logo is recognized worldwide.Click on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the collection.http://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin
