Campaign – HBCU-LP --- | Ralph Lauren
EXCLUSIVELY FOR
Morehouse College
&
Spelman College

“Our portrait of American style, and our vision of the American dream, would be incomplete without Black experiences like this.”

Our Partnership With Morehouse and Spelman Colleges
In a historic collaboration, this collection honors the rich heritage and sartorial traditions of historically Black colleges and universities through the lens of two iconic educational institutions.
The collection celebrates each college’s contribution to American style, inspired by vintage campus wear from the 1920s to the 1950s, while building on our broader commitment to support HBCU students.
 
A PORTRAIT OF THE
AMERICAN DREAM
MOREHOUSE
The mission of Morehouse College is to develop men with disciplined minds who will lead lives of leadership and service.
A private historically Black liberal arts college for men, Morehouse realizes this mission by emphasizing the intellectual and character development of its students, and upholds a special responsibility for teaching the history and culture of Black people.
THE MOREHOUSE COLLECTION
Authentically inspired by vintage Morehouse sportswear and period tailoring from the early 20th century, down to the smallest details
SPELMAN
Spelman College, a historically Black college and a global leader in the education of women of African descent, is dedicated to academic excellence in the liberal arts and sciences and the intellectual, creative, ethical, and leadership development of its students.
Through diverse learning modalities, Spelman empowers the whole person to engage the many cultures of the world and inspires a commitment to positive social change.
AN UNDAUNTED SPIRIT
At Spelman, the highly anticipated white dress tradition marks students’ induction into the college and, in turn, their induction into a sacred sisterhood
AUTHENTICALLY DESIGNED
Each collection is rich with references to the traditional iconography and colors of each college, like the official “Spelman Blue” color and graphics that have been adapted from archival yearbooks and publications
THE FIVE WELLS OF MOREHOUSE
Well-spoken, well-written, well-dressed, well-traveled, and well-balanced. These Morehouse values are a cornerstone of students’ code of conduct, and a philosophy of living beyond the halls of academia
THE YARD
At Morehouse, athletics provide experiences that no classroom could—like teamwork, perseverance, and the competitive spirit. These styles embody that tradition, and of producing outstanding leaders on the field as well as in the classroom
The Ralph Lauren Corporate Foundation has pledged $2 million to support scholarships for Black, African, and African American students, including those at Morehouse College, Spelman College, and 10 additional HBCUs through the United Negro College Fund (UNCF).
The company is also actively facilitating career pathways for talent at these institutions by deepening internship, recruitment, mentorship, and development programs.
