LE STADIUM P-PIN
While the original Stadium Collection was legendary, and still coveted today, it wasn’t meant for winter. When winter starts to set in, the accouterments of the warmer months are carefully tied down, shuttered and packed away for the season. So it goes with the collegiate athletics meets country club meets boathouse aesthetic of the original Stadium collection. Keeping in tune with the upper class convention of seasonally specific leisure destinations, A new, Polo Ralph Lauren Winter Stadium Collection has its eye on excursions to ski country, and holidays upstate, as the 1920s and 30s US Olympic athlete uniforms that informed the original collection are reimagined as cold weather class with a serious functional edge.
A red and black based palette, with hints of white and silver is applied in a bold, 1990s color blocking style, for maximum visual impact against a stark winter landscape. Prominent placement gives the old-school influences of graphics like the P-Wing, racing bib and US flag shield a distinctly modern feel that naturally meshes with the overtly technical elements.
In many ways, winter is the perfect season in which to fully explore the dual identity created by Polo’s aspirational spirit. We wouldn’t say that winter weather is the great equalizer, but it is assuredly near the top of the list. Cold is cold, wet is wet, biting wind is biting wind, whether you’re waiting for a ski lift or a crosswalk light. the Polo Ralph Lauren Winter Stadium Limited Edition Collection is elegance in the face of these adverse conditions, no matter where you find yourself. The American Dream, at work again.
