For years, the fans had envied her hair. Now, 25 years after the launch of the beloved series “Friends,” you can dress like the popular heartthrob Rachel Green.
Famous designer Ralph Lauren has released a collection inspired by the aspiring fashion executive fictional character played by Jennifer Aniston, the series’ chicest character and one-time fictitious employee of the designer.
The collection’s name is in the same manner as the episodes were named. “The One Where They Wore Ralph Lauren.”
The capsule collection is launched in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Bloomingdales and has wear-to-work looks based on previously existing products that might have found their place in Rachel’s wardrobe in 2019.
These include velvet jackets and turtlenecks, leather trousers and skirts in suede, leather, and plaid, both in a mini and midi length.
There’s no menswear: this is a pure ode to Rachel. The selection comes from Polo and LAUREN Ralph Lauren lines.
Ralph Lauren said in a statement, “This collection is a remembrance of the brand’s role in the series. Just as ‘FRIENDS’ had proved to be a perpetual favorite series for viewers over the last 25 years, this collection also reflects Ralph Lauren’s timeless styles and paragons that have remained a go-to product for the modern working woman.”
To feed fans’ nostalgia, promotional shots for the line were taken on sets that replicated Monica and Rachel’s apartment and the gang’s favorite coffee shop, Central Perk.
This weekend, the set and collection will be on display at Bloomingdales’ flagship in New York City — where Rachel got her first big fashion job. Both sets will then travel to other Bloomingdale’s locations across the country.
Ralph Lauren x Friends is the first collaboration from a major designer to mark the 25-year milestone — though a Balenciaga coat made headlines last year for looking like a possible homage to an outfit worn by Joey Tribbiani in one of the series’ most famous episodes.
