News & Trends: Ralph Laurenís timelessly luxurious offerings for this holiday season are rooted in the spirit of 1930ís Sun Valley, the famous ski resort frequented by socialites and celebrities. The Ralph Lauren Holiday Collection embodies wintry sophistication with luxe cashmeres, rich tartan plaids, regal velvets and chic yet rustic details, creating gifts with a nod to classic American heritage and modern sensibility. Standout items are a tartan plaid duffel bag, made of rich wool with saddle leather trim, for $1,500, and the Brabham Vice Box at $4,995.
Crafted in onyx colored leather, steel and lacquered wood, the Brabham is a streamlined box revealing entertainment essentials: handsome crystal barware, sleek coaters and a debonair poker set. As a limited edition of 50, each box bears a numbered plate. Other home items evoke the inviting world of the Adirondacks or a sleek urban environment, with a sophisticated jewel-toned palette executed in sumptuous materials. The designerís recently launched collection of watches is also on offer, including a limited edition Stirrup model in platinum.
