the high-resolution images beam onto the 60 feet tall and 150 feet wide liquid display, and shows incredible 4D effects. this is thanks to the combination of live-action movement and CG that feature the models visiting the streets of a hyper-real new york. the unique experience is framed by the cityscape and celebrates the grand opening of the polo flagship store on fifth avenue. it takes place on the 8th september 2014, with a public showing the following evening.

‘I really wanted to do something big for the new polo women’s brand — something set in the city — that felt modern. we returned to central park, a place I love, and captured the spirit of polo with a truly innovative mix of fashion and technology,’ said ralph lauren.





‘ralph lauren continues to push his company into the future, using technology as a way to keep his brands fresh and innovative and at the cutting edge of modernity,’ said david lauren, executive vice president of global advertising, marketing and corporate communications.
