Ralph Lauren‘s iconic ’90s collections were packed with bold colorblocking, oversized logos and sportswear references. Though some of the design influence remains, the latest limited edition collection from Polo is packed with direct reinterpretations of the early ’90s “Hi Tech” line. Encompassing various adventure-themed items, the range includes bright fishing vests, multipocketed cargo pants, striped rugby shirts and a Polo Bear-branded sweater. An insulated sweater sports handwarmer pockets for extra comfort, while tees boast complementary throwback logos — a detail reiterated on a “POLO RAFTING CLUB” quarter zip sweater. Mid-top climbing sneakers and a knit beanie thematically complement the other branded gear, along with a hoodie printed with similarly oversized “CLIMB” verbiage.

Shop the collection on Ralph Lauren’s web store now and look for the range to hit select retailers like HBX soon.

Most recently, a Lauren designer opened up about the origins of the Polo Bear.
