Ralph Lauren hasn't presented its men's collection in 12 years, but this summer it will show at both New York's and Milan's Fashion Weeks, according to Fashionista.
Milan will get to see Ralph Lauren's upscale Purple Label collection in June, while the label will show Polo Ralph Lauren at New York's very first fashion week dedicated to men's collections happening in July. The Milan show will take place at the Ralph Lauren Palazzo, which isn't scheduled for an official opening until September. The new venue will offer a VIP experience for customers in need of everything from dining to tailoring services when it opens later this year.
Ralph Lauren's announcement is a sign that menswear is finally having its moment. New York Fashion Week: Men's is already set-up to be a huge success with other established names like Tommy Hilfiger, Rag & Bone, Public School, Billy Reid, Todd Snyder, Michael Bastian, Ovadia & Sons, Robert Geller, and Patrik Ervell on the schedule.
Plus, at least now no one can say men's fashion week doesn't have Ralph, tho.
