Overview

The landmark volume celebrating the life and work of Ralph Lauren, now available in a smaller, more portable edition. Unlike many designers, Ralph Lauren is not known for a single signature look, but rather for his sweeping dreams of American living. Over the course of his career, the images of luxury, adventure, and beauty that he created have come to define American style.
In this visually stunning book, Lauren speaks candidly about himself and his art. In part one, we get to know the designer through never-before-seen pictures of him in private life and with his family, living the lives he designs for. In his own words, we hear about his life, work, and inspiration.
In the second part, Lauren displays and writes about his most important, most iconic, and most beloved work, hand-picked from hundreds of runway shows, collections, and his signature cinematic advertising campaigns. Lauren’s aesthetic influence and unique design sensibility are captured here by fashion’s finest photographers, including Bruce Weber, Deborah Turbeville, and Patrick Demarchelier.
Now available to a larger audience at a more accessible price, this unique fashion monograph is a personal expression of the artist and a rare peek into the mind of one of America’s most accomplished fashion designers of all times.

    I love this book!

    As soon as the book came out I knew I had to own it. The pictures are beautiful! He appears to have a wonderful family life. The book is heavy to lift but is a great coffee table book. While the book doesn't have much in the written word inside of the book the photograhs speak for themselves.I like the fact that he doesn't seem to act or aspire to be a 'celebrity'...at least that is from my point of view...others may not agree, but that's ok. Recently Biography did a 1 hour show a month or so ago which was fascinating blending his love of automobiles and clothes. The man is a talented,caring,humble and classy artist.

    Filled with Photographs

    I am a big fan of Ralph Lauren and had wanted this book to add to my collection. The book is filled with photographs from various times throughout the Ralph Lauren label and short dialogues in between. Great book to add to your collection if you enjoy fashion.

    He ain't heavy, but his book is!

    Ralph Lauren is some amazing salesman. He's actually getting people to pay $135 for a doorstop full of old advertising pictures and the same line of malarkey he sells in all his interviews...and I mean he sticks to the script word for word. He calls this an autobiography but it's just marketing. You gotta give the guy credit for chutzpah, though.
