Polo Ralph Lauren has reeled through its expansive archives to find inspiration for its latest capsule — “Polo Sport Outdoor.” The assemblage reinterprets ’90s silhouettes that were originally made for winter outdoor sports.
Across a span of warm layering garments like a billowy poncho, multi-paneled knitwear, a hunter’s vest, tactical nylon pants and hiking boots, the range is bolstered with a series of colorful motifs, some of which are iconic prints taken from old campaigns.
Like what we saw on the poncho back in September, the same vintage print from the 1998 Polo Sportsman campaign has been emblazoned on the fleece-lined zip-up jacket. A “Polo Sport” patch logo is placed at the upper left chest, complete with “Polo Expedition” written vertically across the central panel. Soft brown fleece materials appear along the hood, while blue panels cover the upper shoulders and cuffs to offset the busy design. The green vest is another noteworthy piece that amplifies the utilitarian theme. It comes with multiple flap pockets at the front with silver-toned snap buttons, a contrasting stripe across the mid-body and a sleek black nylon belt to adjust the fit. Other pieces like the knitted pullover, hiking boots and various accessories like bags and hats round up the outdoor capsule.
The Polo Ralph Lauren “Polo Sport Outdoor” capsule will be available on November 14 at Ralph Lauren.
