Ralph Lauren Home marks its thirtieth anniversary
13 November 2013
Long-time John Jones client Ralph Lauren is celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of their Homeware collection by launching two new ranges. Apartment No. One, named after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s residence in Kensington Palace, combines traditional English tweed and mahogany with art deco elements, whilst La Hacienda includes Native American inspired fabrics evoking the American west.
Ralph Lauren first started their Homeware range when Ralph and his wife were furnishing their own home and couldn’t find anything of the right style and quality that they wanted. They became the first fashion house to launch a full homeware collection. Over their thirty years they have developed Ralph Lauren’s concept of ‘the stylish American life’ by merging Hollywood glamour, New England beach house, Western ranch, English country and Ralph’s ‘romantic vision of Africa’.
The John Jones design team has worked closely with Ralph Lauren over the last decade creating bespoke frames for their flagship stores in Moscow, Tokyo, Paris and London. For the Paris Store John Jones took inspiration from the 17th century building to produce a selection of gilded styles that complement the period aesthetic. For the Rugby Store in Covent Garden our team created a collection of framed butterflies in a style which echoed the brand’s ‘Ivy League tradition’. We are pleased to celebrate Ralph Lauren Home’s thirtieth year and look forward to future collaborations!
