While in shops and especially at flagship stores of major brands the scale of size, design and use of media evolved rapidly, does Polo Ralph Lauren trusts in a classic style. Even the prominent store on 5th Avenue in Manhattan meets the expectations of interior with wood decor and the feeling of having arrived in an American country villa. On the second floor the brand invites to have a seat and enjoy coffee.
In the classic American style, homy and welcoming, with mosaic floors and stylish furniture exclusively coffee blends are served from private, organically grown beans from Central and South America and Africa here in Ralph’s Coffee Bar. Besides you will find a selection of light snacks and sweet treats – all favorites of the designer personally himself.
The café is divided in of two sections. The part in the front merges directly into the fashion shop and invites to have seat at the large, antique dining table, in front of a huge bookshelf, featuring the flair of a well-off living room at home. In the back you can find the nice, tiny and almost all in white coffee shop.
Ralph Lauren himself is an absolute coffee lover. The smell of freshly brewed coffee always reminds him of a good time with his family and friends, who are important to him and he has created this atmosphere into the store.
The trend of cafes, bars and bistros in every trendy fashion shop is not new. But here is a small, fine and out of the city hustle coffee place that integrates on a very laid-back way into the store and extended the brand world via the sense of taste.
