Tenue de Nîmes proudly presents Double RL (RRL) Fall Winter 2014 deliveries
Tenue de Nîmes is one of the very few stockists of the Double RL
brand. In February we had the pleasure to visit Ralph Lauren’s Bondstreet mansion in London to place the order for Fall/Winter 2014. Double RL was founded in 1993 by Ralph Lauren and was created as a modern tribute to the independent spirit of the untamed West and the tireless resolve of the American blue-collar worker. Both the brand name and logo are tributes to Mr. Lauren’s ‘RRL’ cattle ranch in Colorado, which personifies the soul and lifestyle of the brand. The name ‘RRL’ literally refers to ‘Ricky and Ralph Lauren’ and emphasises that this exclusive line is a personal tribute to 20th century style. Ralph Lauren managed to create a ‘Double RL’ world based on the authenticity and hard-wearing lifestyles of cowboys, workers, soldiers, sailors, Native Americans, bikers and musicians. They became the basic starting point of Ralph Lauren’s ultimate, timeless American wardrobe.
We admire RRL so much because of its absolute obsession for the highest quality in the recreation of vintage garments. Tenue de Nîmes is happy to officially kick-off the new Double RL Fall Winter season. The first drops of the Double RL Icon collection are available as from today. More about the specific RRL collections in the coming weeks. Images taken at Ralph Lauren’s London Head Quarters by our friend Thomas Tukker.
