International News - Ralph Lauren to make its Italian debut in Milan

Upscale fashion brand Ralph Lauren will open its first Italian store in Milan next autumn.

The four-storey outlet in Via Montenapoleone will have a floor dedicated to its burgeoning homewares business. The Ralph Lauren furniture and home accessories offer is already well-established in its core US market and growth is now being sought abroad.

Ralph Lauren has 31 Polo Ralph Lauren and Ralph Lauren-branded outlets in Europe, including the UK, France, Germany and Belgium. There are plans to introduce the home offer in existing stores where space allows.
