Ralph Lauren RLX
Posted on November 20 2020
Ralph Lauren RLX garments are designed with functionality in mind, each individual model possessing indispensable qualities that make them impervious to adverse weather conditions. Durable performance shells will happily keep you sheltered from the wind and rain, while the 90/10 duck down fill featured throughout the outerwear pieces in our showcase provides exceptional protection from the cold. This extra padding is super lightweight too, meaning you won’t have to worry about being burdened with any extra, undue mass. This ultra-lightweight performance is key, as it guarantees that RLX models are not only practical but comfortable too; making them suitable to city life, alpine landscapes and far beyond. They can even be folded and packed away without much effort, meaning you won’t have to sacrifice precious suitcase space to take them with you wherever you go.
As alluded to previously, one of the more noteworthy dimensions of the Ralph Lauren RLX capsule is its diversity, presenting a range of silhouettes that are suited to a myriad of different environments. Take for example the ‘Condover’ program, which is realised in both a hybridised sport coat and a 4-pocket field jacket for our AW20 showcase. This particular component of the RLX project was clearly designed to align more with contemporary business-style attire, with suit lapels, button-flap pockets and mock neck collars projecting a holistically smart-casual vibe (a staple feature of the now-defunct Ralph Lauren ‘Black Label’ line). Neither of these two styles would look out of place in an office or modern workplace environment, yet they retain many of the qualities that allow for them to be equally as effective in more tumultuous weather conditions. We really appreciate how the two Condover jackets exemplify and epitomise Ralph Lauren’s signature preppy-style aesthetic too, ensuring that the classic feel and tailor-oriented foundations of the label are preserved in all their earnestness.
