Featured in the January issue of Vanity Fair, Photographer Paul Goldberger captures never before seen images of Ralph Lauren’s remarkable car collection, and the equally beautiful building they are housed in.
Described as having a museum like quality- the collection consist of 60+ cars, including a 1965 Ferrari P2/3 (pictured above) and a Bugatti Veyron.
Architect Charles Gwathmey and Alfredo Paredes (vice president of design at Polo) turned an abandoned warehouse into a beautifully designed showroom for Mr. Lauren’s 4 wheeled masterpieces. In case you were wondering..this unmarked, unassuming compound in upstate New York is called D.A.D. Lauren chose this ambiguous name to represent his three children; David, Andrew and Dylan. Walls of glass, black floors, exposed ceilings, and modern furniture is in complete juxtaposition when compared to the classic American styling usually found in Mr. Lifshitz’s clothing (Lifshitz..Ralph Lifshitz is his real name ).
P.S. Mr. Lauren, If you you ever need a mysterious Asian mechanic who knows how to make cool gadgets and great coffee- Contact Us!
