By: Ralph Lauren

Originally released as a huge 14-pound book, it's since been republished in a much, much lighter version. This book provides a sweeping look at the long career of the quintessential American designer, and is simply beautiful to flip through. The first part is a candid look at Lauren's life, while the second part has the designer cull from his own archives to give his own perspective on the pieces and collections that he would prefer define his legacy.
