A gathering of votes from famous and prestigious drivers such as Carroll Shelby, Bob Bondurant, Sir Stirling Moss, Dan Gurney, and Jay Leno, this book reveals—for the first time—what the professionals list as the best of the best. This is a full-color book that will please anyone who's passionate about driving, even with more mundane transportation. “There are cars,” says the author, “and then there are those greater than the sum of their parts.” The expert panel picked the top fifty, largely avoiding traditional choices they call simply “fundamental to automotive history.” This panel agreed that the Top Five list includes the 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa, the 1913 Mercer Racabout, the 1932–37 Model SJ Dusenberg, the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR, and the Maserati Birdcage. Stunning full-color photos complement the passionate text from expert drivers in a book that will rev up the RPMs of many a man (and woman).

Ralph Lauren’s designs vividly embody the American Dream, and he has risen to become one of the world’s foremost fashion designers. His genius lies in his innate skill for interpreting key cultural elements of Americana—whether from folk art or the preppy world of Hamptons’ socialites or Navajo motifs—and encapsulating them in appealing garments. Also a natural fit with Hollywood, he has designed costumes for films such as The Great Gatsby (1974) and Annie Hall and created countless looks for stars on the red carpet. From his ubiquitous, equestrian-tagged Polo shirts to his American-country-club take on upper-class Englishness, his skill in making aspiration accessible is second to none. Vogue on Ralph Lauren is a volume from the series created by the editors of British Vogue, featuring 20,000 words of original biography and history and studded with more than 80 images from their unique archive of photos taken by leading photographers including Bruce Weber, Patrick Demarchelier, and Mario Testino.

A candid and enthralling memoir by the legendary founder of the company that brought American style to the world—Ralph Lauren shares the inside story of his rise from a tie designer operating out of a single drawer in the Empire State Building to the CEO of one of our most iconic brands. Ralph Lauren is an American original. Born in the Bronx, the youngest of four, he grew up in a typical American neighborhood playing sports and going to the local movie theater. Though he never went to fashion school, he knew early on that he had a passion for style. Over the past fifty years, Lauren has built one of the greatest and most recognizable lifestyle brands—one that epitomizes the American Dream. The polo pony is among the few icons instantly recognized across the world. But Lauren himself has always been a mystery. Now, in a memoir that’s heartfelt, humble, and beautifully crafted, he tells his story at last. This rare peek into the mind of one of the most accomplished business leaders tells of the risks he took, the setbacks, the competitors, and the countless doubters—as well as his many thrilling triumphs, visionary breakthroughs, and the foundational relationships that formed the heart of his brand. Both an artistic and entrepreneurial genius, Ralph Lauren is the quintessential interpreter of American style, a man who had a singular vision and sold it to the world.

The landmark volume celebrating the life and work of Ralph Lauren, now available in a smaller, more portable edition.

Over the course of his career, the images of luxury, adventure, and beauty that he created have come to define American style. In this visually stunning book, Lauren speaks candidly about himself and his art. In part one, we get to know the designer through never-before-seen pictures of him in private life and with his family, living the lives he designs for. In his own words, we hear about his life, work, and inspiration. In the second part, Lauren displays and writes about his most important, most iconic, and most beloved work, hand-picked from hundreds of runway shows, collections, and his signature cinematic advertising campaigns. Lauren's aesthetic influence and unique design sensibility are captured here by fashion's finest photographers, including Bruce Weber, Deborah Turbeville, and Patrick Demarchelier. Now available to a larger audience at a more accessible price, this unique fashion monograph is a personal expression of the artist and a rare peek into the mind of one of America's most accomplished fashion designers of all times.
