Went all the way back to 2010 Annual Reports and Lauren was still a Trademark. What I don't see though is the green label trademark on whereas Purple, Black, Blue are all mentioned. My theory is they lost the right to call Lauren the green label but even that's not menioned in the AR. Might have been a side deal like you said.
Yeah I saw those. I am really curious now. I might go back to 2014/2015 annual reports to see if there is any mention of this. They are legally bound to disclose this kind of information to shareholders so it should be in there somewhere. (embarrassed)
Yes, someone mentions (in the discussion thread I linked to above) that perhaps Ralph Lauren bought them back, hard to say as I couldn't find a clear timeline of the diffusion brand's history. This "speculation" is repeated various places online, though, of course, that doesn't make it true.
I think this may just be unfounded speculation. The annual report clearly outlines that they own the RLR trademark along with PLO etc http://www.annualreports.co.uk/HostedData/AnnualReportArchive/p/NYSE_RL_2017.pdf
