Book Overview

A fully illustrated biography of iconic American designer Ralph Lauren told through the lens of fashion

From the author of Dressing the Man, the seminal tome on men's fashion, comes the illustrated biography of Ralph Lauren. Published as part of the designer's 50th anniversary, Alan Flusser's book looks at the life of the iconic American designer through the lens of fashion and cultural impact. This high-level, yet intimate, reflection on the life and work of Ralph Lauren shows how a preppy young boy from the Bronx created one of the most recognizable brands in American fashion.

   Beautiful Book--National Treasure
Of course, this is a great book duh. And it is gorgeous. And an excellent reminder of how much better our world is for Ralph Lauren in it. You 'll love this one.
   Beautiful book
It is so elegant in black.
   Great Bio of RL, Great Illustrations, but Laughable Overuse of the Word "Sartorial"
I enjoyed reading this book and its illustrations and would recommend it to fashion curious. '' One star for the sartorial, laughable overuse of the word flagrant ''. Kaufe a Thesaurus, for crying out loud. At times, the book seemed to segue into an unabashed advertisement of all things RL. RL was a butt dumper I didn 't know. Pix showed RL in his fingers with a little cancer stick. He may be sincere. Nevertheless, I adored the book and lauded RL's well-earned success.
   Beautiful book
I had my eye on this book to decorate my bookshelves and found it here on Amazon for a much better price.
   Two orders, both damaged, same spot.
I received two copies with the same damaged in the same place. The seller really needs to have the books wrapped before being boxed.
   THIS is the Ralph Lauren Book to Own
Just 30 pages in, I can tell you that this is the book Ralph Lauren to own. I have read the WWD book cover-to-cover, and although it is thorough, this one by Alan Flusser puts the meat on the bones -- and if you will -- on the life and style of Ralph Lauren. You might also enjoy watching the film Very Ralph for a more experiential understanding of the man and his work.
Inside the cover is beautiful and the inside is gorgeous photographs. You can take the black cover and the book is a gorgeous tone on a tartan black if you want a different look.
   Ralph’s Magic
Ralph Lauren is the best Ralph Lauren presenter! I've been a RL devotee for fifty years. His magic is unxplainable! Who else can sell a wristwatch of a tuxedo in a zoo for $2150 and be immediately sold? His appeal traverses all boundaries of class and race through out the world! Harvey Lauren does a workman's job, but Ralph Lauren's Ralph Lauren is better known by Ralph Lauren!
   Alan's Writing and Ralph's Story!
The incredible writing skills of Alan Flusser are at least on par with his superb gift for design. The sartorial eye of Alan remains second to none this day. I always loved Ralph Lauren's writing and was thrilled to learn several years ago that he was writing Alan's biography. What a synergistic endeavor... a gifted writer who also shares with his subject many of the same sartorial passions and talents. Ralph Lauren personifies the American Dream and Alan Flusser carries Ralph's story and excellently chronicles his journey.
   His vision of life was so fabulous like a Fred Astaire movie in his head
I have been Ralph Lauren clothing, lighting fixtures and in and on so that his whole interests were so inspiring in one place! I loved seeing his clothes, his cars, and his life as it has never been! Not to mention all the pictures and great writing.
