It’s been a fantastic year for designer, philanthropist and business executive Ralph Lauren, who is now the first American fashion designer to be given an honorary knighthood.

The brand has already worked with designers such as Karl Largafell, Balmain, Versage, Stella McCartney and others. And with every new release also comes the chaos of the first opening. Two years ago, when the brand was about to introduce its collaboration with Balmain, people were queuing for days in the cold just to be among the first to get into the store. As you can imagine, the chaos was real, so H&M had to call the police for help. In other words, a fashion nightmare.
