He will continue to be the executive chairman and chief creative director of the brand which means that he will continue to have complete creative control over the multi-brand company.

Ralph Lauren said that it was his job to think about the future of the company and find ways to make it move forward. The septuagenarian designer also showed his confidence in Larsson and said that he was exceptionally talented who would bring “fresh and exciting global perspective” to the company.

With all the pieces of the business in place, now there is scope for continued growth, he added. He mentioned that though the company has been an industry leader for about half a century, for him it’s just the beginning.
