This extra-large beautiful book was given to me by my son Phil. He is also a big fan of Lauren. This book is about Ralph Lauren the man. It is filled with beautiful photos of him, his family and his collections. Here are some cool facts I learned about Ralph Lauren. He grew up in the Bronx. He never went to Fashion School.

Recommends it for: those who love Ralph Lauren.
One of my most favourite designers and book Ralph Lauren by Ralph Lauren is a gorgeous and very heavy must have coffee table book for those appreciative of Ralph Lauren and his classic country, the American preppy to his romantic New England glamour. Flip through gorgeous vintage photographs of his life and family with heart melting, luxurious quintessential Ralph Lauren outfits. The book gave me a beautiful insight to his upbringing, passion and his inspirations. He must be a wonderful person x

Disappointing.

Love Ralph (my favorite designer), but he deserves a better tribute than this hodge-podge of photographs. The book is divided into topics, but they all blended into each other; there needed to be a clearer division between topics or arrangement by chronology. The whole thing feels disorganized and haphazardly arranged. I'll be waiting for a better visual biography of this fashion pioneer!

Ralph Lauren by Ralph Lauren with numerous photographs by Bruce Weber is a magnificent tome. This big book, which must way 40 pounds, takes the reader on a journey through Ralph's life and career with short vignettes and incredible photographs.

If you have ever worn the Polo label or if you are nostalogic for the eighties, check out this fashion book!

Ralph Lauren may be one of the most inspiring men I've ever read about. His success and vision is mind blowing, and this book is one of the most beautiful books I one (which is why it's on our coffee table). Sit down and flip through it if you see it.

"Todos nós recebemos relatórios de muitas maneiras diferentes, mas a verdadeira emoção do que você está fazendo está em fazê-lo. Não é o que você vai conseguir no final, é realmente em fazer, e amar o que você está fazendo".
