Montauk resident Ralph Lauren’s company has a long history of supporting LGBT nonprofit organizations, but Polo Ralph Lauren hasn’t had a campaign or collection dedicated to the queer community until now. Its first-ever Pride Month collection features five unisex fashion staples, each with a pop of rainbow flair. The polo shirt, tee, fleece hoodie and baseball cap are crisp white with the classic Polo emblem flaunting the colors of the Pride flag, and, cooler still, each one can be monogrammed. The collection also includes an off-white tote bag with navy straps and the words “Polo Pride” on one side and the rainbow emblem on the other. All proceeds from the sale of the tees and half of proceeds from the other four pieces will help the Stonewall Community Foundation provide substantial grants to LGBT-focused organizations and projects in New York.
Ralph Lauren’s Club Monaco has it’s own Pride Month campaign, titled Love Starts Here, which features a gray unisex hoodie with the company name written in rainbow. Half of the proceeds will be donated to the Stonewall Community Foundation.
