Ralph Lauren Engages Ski Season With New ‘Downhill Skier’ Drop

After a conceited effort to ignore it’s effect on street culture, for a myriad of reasons, Polo Ralph Lauren has spent the last year reissuing iconic and influential (or in some case influenced) styles from the 80s and 90s heyday of the preppy brand. Reviving the Snow Beach line, championed by Wu-Tang Clan’s very own Raekwon the Chef amongst others, proved to be the most universally popular move in the brand’s recent history, allowing a new set of fashion fetishing limited edition hunters the chance to buy into the brand and offer the company a fresh start. More recently, the Polo Hi-Tech designs that channelled the technicolour blocked sporting touch of the 90s took major inspiration from this period of street fashion and following that up is the ‘Downhill Skier’ offering from the brand, highlighted by the Hawthorne Jacket on display.
