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.

Larsson, who has previously worked with H&M and Old Navy, is being seen as the perfect choice for the job. In his last job as Old Navy’s global president, he was responsible for reviving the brand. In just three years, he even successfully added $1 billion in sales for the company. Previously, Larsson spent 15 years with H&M.  

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.
