Ralph Lauren to Launch ‘Friends’-Inspired Apparel Line
Designer Ralph Lauren has joined forces with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to launch an apparel collection inspired by ‘90s sitcom "Friends."
The wear-to-work collection is based on the series' character Rachel Green, who was played by actor Jennifer Aniston. In the show, Rachel worked at a fictionalized version of the fashion label from seasons five through 10. Ralph Lauren, the designer behind the brand, even cameoed in an episode of the show in 1999.
Ralph Lauren's ‘90s-styled capsule includes professional pieces such as blazers, wool pants, turtleneck sweaters and pleated miniskirts. The collection will be sold online and at “Friends”-themed Bloomingdale’s in-store pop-ups starting this month. In a unique bit of brand synergy, the Rachel character also worked at Bloomingdale’s in earlier seasons of the show.
