The Ralph Lauren flagship in the Rhinelander Mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side has emerged from its overhaul-slash-facelift. The newfangled retail space now only houses the label's menswear collections. Our sister site Racked NY has the scoop: "Floors one and two are currently open to the public after receiving light touch-ups, but the real changes took place on the third and fourth floors, which won't be available to customers until later this week. Now that the whole building is a boy's club, there's enough room to devote whole floors to different styles. The fourth floor, which houses RLX and Ralph Lauren Black Label, is modern and macho, with woven-leather rugs and leather-wrapped shelves complementing the leather moto jackets. One room is dominated by the biggest motorcycle we've ever seen; another houses turntables that won't skip even in an earthquake." [RNY]
