What are Ralph Lauren's Business Segments?


Our wholesale business is divided primarily into three groups: Polo Brands, Lauren, and Collection Brands. In each of these wholesale groups, we offer discrete brand offerings, directed by teams consisting of design, merchandising, sales and production staff who work together to conceive, develop and merchandise product groupings organized to convey a variety of design concepts.

Full-Price Stores

In addition to generating sales of our products, our worldwide full-price stores set, reinforce and capitalize on the image of our brands.

Our Licensing Alliances

Through licensing alliances, we combine our consumer insight, design, and marketing skills with the specific product or geographic competencies of our licensing partners to create and build new businesses. We generally seek out licensing partners who:

• are leaders in their respective markets,

• contribute the majority of our product development costs,

• provide the operational infrastructure required to support the business, and

• own the inventory.

We grant product and international licensing partners the right to manufacture and sell at wholesale and international licenses to sell at retail, specified categories of products under one or more of our trademarks. Our international licensing partners produce and source products both independently, and in conjunction with us and our product licensing partners. Each licensing partner pays us royalties based upon its sales of our products, subject generally, to a minimum royalty requirement. Other than our Ralph Lauren Home collection licenses, which are discussed below, these payments generally range from 2.5% to 15.0% of the licensing partners’ sales of the licensed products. In addition, licensing partners are required to allocate between approximately 3% and 4% of their sales to advertise our products and share in the creative costs associated with these products. Larger allocations are required in connection with launches of new products or in new territories.
