We all know about the Rachel haircut, but do you remember how Jennifer Aniston’s Friends character also worked at Ralph Lauren for five years?

Ralph was a good sport about the whole thing, even making a cameo appearance on the show, where a starstruck Rachel shared an elevator with the legendary designer. 

As Friends celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, Ralph has showed his support once more, this time with an entire collection dedicated to Rachel. 

The Wear to Work collection includes a range of pieces you can imagine Rachel wearing back in the day. There are classic wool suits and turtlenecks in modern silhouettes and shapes, and chic office pieces from black leather trousers to midi and miniskirts in leather, plaid and suede, along with jackets in velvet, faux leopard fur and purple shearling. The ‘90s never really goes out of style, right? More conventional pieces include pin-striped suits, crested blazers, and polo-ready accessories in navy and orange, with pops of leopard print. We can totally see Kate and Meghan in these. The collection will be priced from around $150 USD and up. 

In a special treat for New Yorkers, Ralph’s new Rachel collection will take over the Studio 59 space at the flagship Bloomingdale’s department store this weekend. There’ll be a pop-up Central Perk cafe serving coffee (we’re dying) and decked out with that beloved orange couch. A section of the store’s third floor has been fitted out to replicate Rachel’s office on the show and another section of Central Perk, where visitors can jostle for selfies until September 27.

The rest of us will have to settle for the clothes, coming to a Ralph Lauren near you from September 18.
