Polo Ralph Lauren store fifth avenue

So here's the score, ladies and gents. If you are in New York City and you don't pop into Polo Ralph Lauren on 5th Avenue, you're just plain crazy, in my humble opinion. The store officially opened to the public last week, and no surprise, I was there the day after it opened to be one of the first to enjoy, not only the three floors full of Polo Ralph Lauren clothing, but also a cup of Ralph Lauren coffee. Yes, Ralph has opened a coffee shop on fifth avenue in the Polo Ralph Lauren store. Let's just say this - it's everything you'd expect from a coffee shop that carries the Ralph name. It's, in short, perfection. If I lived in Manhattan, I'd coffee no where else every morning of every day. The small coffee shop offers an intimate environment, with seating for 22, which basically makes it the Central Perk we've all been waiting for.

The honest truth is this - the coffee shop is just the cherry on a magnificent Ralph Lauren ice cream sundae. The new Polo Ralph Lauren store is basically a shop taken straight from my wildest fashion dreams. The new label is a step back into the Lauren archives, with throwbacks to beautiful Navajo sweaters, fringed leather jackets and classic cable knit cashmere sweaters of every colour imaginable. There's more here than I could ever talk about. 

I took a thousand and one pictures of Ralph's coffee shop, but in the end decided just to share personal pics. This is a space you simply have to see yourself. Order an iced coffee on the hot summer days, if there are any Indian summer days ahead of us, or go for a macchiato on the cooler autumn breezes to come. Bring friends, grab a table and enjoy the incredible atmosphere that has been laid out just for this purpose. 

Enjoy! Here's a look at three floors of heaven.... otherwise known as Polo Ralph Lauren on Fifth Avenue. {PS - UK readers can shop the collection now on the Ralph Lauren website}
