In Miami’s Design District, Ralph Lauren is introducing a brand-new retail concept with a focus on luxury.
The store, which opens on Tuesday, will carry a mix of men’s Purple Label and women’s Collection apparel and accessories, as well as exclusive handbags and accessories for the Design District location.
The Ralph Lauren fleet is mostly focused on premium items and exclusive places, but the Miami unit stands out because to the unique services and promotions it offers.
Secondly, the architecture of the business was influenced by the presence of yachts and waterfront mansions in the coastal community. The 4,135 square foot store features teak wood plank and white tile flooring, blonde mahogany wood millwork, stainless steel accents, and black ebonized embellishments. The space is adorned with modern artwork and Ralph Lauren Home Collection furnishings.
Using interactive digital screens, customers may schedule interactive style sessions, browse any item sold in North America, and compile wish lists.
In addition, a mural showing a recreation of the spring 2023 Collection advertising campaign for ladies was painted on a wall in front of the Miami Design District Museum Garage.
The store specializes in selling luxury items, but also offers a variety of novel shopping experiences. A cooperation with the Web3 platform Poolsuite is one of these. As part of the first brand collaboration for Poolsuite, all current members will receive a Ralph Lauren x Poolsuite NFT. In addition, “RL-3000” website users will be able to adorn their “Leisurist” avatars with digital Ralph Lauren clothing.
Over the course of three days, guests will be immersed in what the brand describes as a “distinctively Ralph Lauren interpretation of seaside life,” complete with wicker lounge chairs featuring navy and white awning stripes, gold decorative pieces, and blue-and-white home collection goods.
The shop will also be the first to accept cryptocurrency as payment. Due to a partnership with BitPay, customers will be able to make purchases using a range of cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Polygon (MATIC).
Ralph Lauren’s chief innovation officer said David Lauren, the firm has always been focused on “Immersive experiences are built into our brand’s DNA and we’ll be creating incredible event activations, innovative Web3 partnerships and one-of-a-kind product offerings authentic to the spirit of one of the hottest cities in the country.”
Immersive experiences are woven into the brand’s DNA, and we’ll provide outstanding event activations, innovative Web3 alliances, and one-of-a-kind product offerings true to the spirit of one of the most trendy cities.
According to him, Miami was selected because it is “one of the most Web3-friendly cities in the world, with a strong and vibrant community of start-ups, brands and luxury consumers participating in the space — making it the perfect market to test cryptocurrency and launch our partnership with a really unique digital community, Poolsuite. This store will be an opportunity for us as a brand to gather key insights as we continue to explore the space. We are in the early stages of our roadmap, but we see an exciting opportunity ahead across digital goods and virtual experiences to build upon our past touchpoints in the metaverse.”
The corporation may eventually open stores with a focus on luxury in more North American, European, and Asian cities. Lauren stated, “As part of our ambition to continue to be one of the world’s leading lifestyle brands, we’ll continue to show up where we know our consumer is shopping and create spaces and experiences in an elevated, relevant and signature Ralph Lauren way.” He declined to name which places or when, however.
