Ralph Lauren is diving into the archives to revitalize its 1990s Polo sportswear, Hi Tech, inspired by the most technical Polo Sport styles from that decade. Hi Tech was a patch originally used on Polo Sport pieces from 1992 to 1994 to signify special technical construction.
For Fall 2018, vintage RL silhouettes have been reimagined into something new, featuring bright colors and bold graphics. The assortment includes performance-driven cargo pants, popovers, rugby shirts, sweatshirts with graphics in block capitals, and surplus-inspired pieces. Details and fits have been updated, while references to the original Hi Tech collection are prevalent throughout.
