Ralph Lauren has been at the forefront of American culture for decades, with clothing and accessories fit for almost all levels of contemporary life.
Whether it’s the partnership with the US Olympic Team or its polo shirts favored at of any casual barbecue, Ralph Lauren is as American as Major League Baseball (MLB). Now, those two are teaming up for a special Polo Ralph Lauren x MLB capsule collection, and you can get an exclusive peek here in Chicago.
Ralph Lauren recently announced a cross-country tour via Ralph’s Airstream. The pop-up will hit the Windy City in a retrofitted airstream, and it's bringing ballpark food and beverages along with sweet digs. Come for the comfortable styles, stay for the hot dogs and cheese dogs made with Wagyu beef, crinkle cut french fries, and warm pretzels with mustard.
In addition to the MLB collection, Ralph Lauren is promoting its Polo Shirt Color Campaign with a Polo Shirt Pop-Up. The open-air storefront will be filled to the brim with monochromatic, collared standards. Locations will also feature accessories and other notable additions. Here, shoppers can design their own monogrammed shirts, play cornhole and enjoy a popsicle.
Ralph's Airstream and the Polo Shirt Pop-Up will travel across the country all summer, promoting their separate campaigns. The airstream will make stops at key baseball locations, kicking off the weekend of July 10 in Chicago. The airstream will serve food on Saturday to patrons from 3 to 7 p.m. at Wrigley Field, where the Chicago Cubs will play a game later that evening.
Meanwhile, the Polo Shirt Pop-Up will make its first appearance at Navy Pier that same day, appealing to the Ferris Wheel riders from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The location will hold the same hours on Sunday, with the Airstream joining it for a rare collaboration; a Polo pageant and presentation, all in one!
While future locations dates have not yet been announced, fans of the brand should keep their eyes on Los Angeles, New York and St. Louis. All three are also featured in the MLB collection, with more to come. As for the rest of the polos, the pop-up will likely travel to other major American cities, and no appointment will be necessary to participate or shop.
This weekend, Chicago will be the paradise of Polo. Hopefully the Cubs will have broken their 10-game losing streak by then. Visit Ralph Lauren's MLB collection online to learn more.
