After a teaser video, we can present to you today ‘The Americans’ Collection, bringing together Taz Arnold and his love for Polo Ralph Lauren and the skills and aesthetics of Dr. Romanelli.

“The result is TI$A’s past – come back to life. The Americans is an experiment in art and clothing – a revamped and reconstructed line of one-of-a-kind wearable work. Taking Taz’s massive collection of vintage Polo, the duo have cut and collaged and reworked and revolutionized. Utilizing a mix of nostalgia, admiration and innovation, The Americans have resurrected and reformed Ralph Lauren’s legendary line.

The result is Taz’s cherished archives – now transformed into a limited run of exquisite, hand sewn jackets, hat, and totes. The Americans have taken Polo’s iconic early ‘90s Teddy Bear/Ski Lodge prep, beloved by early hip-hop icons and cool kids alike… and transformed it into their own poetic ode to pop culture.”

Some of the most iconic Polo trademarks are used in the collection, mixed with a vintage sport aesthetic. The combination of graphics, materials and silhouettes is very impressive and throws you back in time. We will keep you posted on the launch of the collection.

Check out the full range of clothing from ‘The Americans’ Collection after the jump.
