UNITED STATES —To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Polo‘s iconic snowboarding collection, Ralph Lauren will re-release the Polo Snow Beach Collection in limited quantities.

Comprised of both reissued and re-imagined styles inspired by the original collection from 1993, the limited-edition collections will deliver in a two-part series: a color capsule launching on Thursday, January 25, and a black and white capsule launching on Thursday, February 1.

Delving into Ralph Lauren’s vast archive of iconic menswear styles, the Snow Beach collections follow the success of the recently released Stadium collection and the limited-edition Polo shirt programs.

The color capsule is comprised of 10 styles, including both reissues of the most iconic pieces made to the exact specifications of the original models and new interpretations of the collection’s sportswear inspiration. References to the 1993 collection include the coveted Snow Beach pullover, the red Snow Beach vest, the Cold Wave fitted cap, and the Snow Beach bucket hat. The new pieces adopt the signature Snow Beach aesthetic, reinterpreted with modern performance technology, and include color-blocked Snow Beach rugbys, a new Snow Beach poncho, a backpack, a waist pack, and high-top sneakers.

The black and white capsule unveils eight new styles that reinvent the original collection in a modern, tonal palette. Key pieces include the double-knit tech rugby with woven signature patches, a water-resistant and insulated micro-ripstop nylon poncho, and a camp hat with lettering in high-density prints.

Polo’s Snow Beach collection was very popular among the urban and Hip-Hop community. Wu-Tang Clan rapper, Raekwon and New Jersey‘s DJ, DJ Just Blaze were two of the people in Hip-Hop who made the collection iconic. Rae rocked the Snow Beach parka jacket on the Wu’s music video, “Can It Be So Simple,” the collection has remained one of the most sought-after capsules in Ralph Lauren’s archives.
