"Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Ralph Lauren Home collection, this book underlines the iconic American designer’s groundbreaking approach to branding. From the debut of his flagship store on New York’s Madison Avenue, the residential retailing of which immersed customers in the world of Ralph Lauren, to his cinematic multi-page ads, his innovative use of materials, his restaurants and the houses — a sprawling Colorado ranch, an island retreat in Jamaica, a Fifth Avenue penthouse, a Montauk beach house and a country estate in Connecticut — that have inspired his fashion and home collections, Ralph Lauren: A Way of Living (Rizzoli) serves as proof that he architected a blueprint that paved the way for today’s lifestyle brands." —THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Alongside these drool-worthy images, Lauren shares private family anecdotes, a timeline of the Ralph Lauren Home collections, and some vital fashion lessons." —OPRAH DAILY

"A huge range of styles are displayed here, from the couple’s minimalist white apartment on Central Park to the antler-clad getaway in the Rockies. Each is perfectly curated, down to how the blue-velvet settee in a Bedford sitting room plays off the green felt of the pool table. “Our homes are a canvas for living,” Lauren writes. And he has filled them artfully. Aristocratic layering is a guiding principle of his interiors — never too many tartan blankets — but any time the color and pattern threaten to riot, wooden antiques and crackled-leather furniture keep it earthy and grounded." —1st Dibs
