2009
Ralph Lauren has curated a collection inspired by the wardrobe of Rachel Green to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the US sitcom Friends, Green was shown working at the luxury American label over the course of several seasons on the show.
Ralph Lauren's Friends-inspired collection will mark the 25th anniversary of the popular US sitcom.

It’s been 25 years since Friends first aired and Jennifer Aniston’s character Rachel Green is still considered one of the most stylish characters on TV – so much so that Ralph Lauren has collaborated with Warner Bros.

To celebrate the US sitcom’s 25th anniversary, Ralph Lauren has created a collection inspired by the wardrobe of Rachel Green, who worked at Bloomingdales and then Ralph Lauren during her decade on the show.

The luxury fashion brand curated a Wear To Work collection based on the Green’s work style, consisting of key late-90s and early-00s styles with modern updates.

The collection includes some garments almost identical to Green’s style as well as the other characters.

There are leather trousers, polo-neck knits, suits, and mini and midi skirts, as well as leopard print.

The pieces are from both Polo Ralph Lauren and Lauren Ralph Lauren, meaning that not all of the pieces come with luxury price-tags, with the cheapest item at £120.

The collection was trending on Twitter following the announcement, with fans worldwide to sharing their excitement at the collaboration.

 

The collection is now available online and in-store at Bloomingdales NYC, the department store that gave Green her first job in fashion.

The store features a dedicated Friends section to celebrate the anniversary and customers can grab a coffee from a pop-up version of Central Perk and take a trip up to the department store’s third floor to see a recreation of Rachel’s office.
