To put it simply, there is no one that has influenced all of us more in the way that we dress and think about style than Ralph Lauren. What started 40 years ago with one young man from the Bronx with an eye for design has turned into not just a global empire, but also an entire way of thinking – a world that has come to envelop far more than simply the Northeastern preppiness of Polo, but also the urbane chic-ness of the handmade Purple Label and the Southwestern workwear meets Brooklyn aura of RRL. Ralph Lauren's influence reaches far beyond clothes, into home goods and decorations, leather and accessories – each encompassing not a style, but an entire approach to living, one directed completely by Ralph himself. And that is what this story is about – Ralph himself. In this exclusive interview, I sit down with the legendary designer to speak about his own watch collection, and those that he has designed – including the just-released Automotive Skeleton watch, in stores this week – and the very watch that Ralph himself wears the most.
