ITEM 5.02 DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF DIRECTORS;
APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS.

On February 11, 2014, Ralph Lauren Corporation (the "Company") entered into an amended and restated employment agreement with Mitchell A. Kosh, the Company's current Senior Vice President of Human Resources, pursuant to which Mr. Kosh will serve as the Company's Executive Vice President of Human Resources (the "Kosh Agreement"). The Kosh Agreement becomes effective on March 1, 2014, and will terminate on March 1, 2017, unless it is terminated earlier in accordance with its terms.

Pursuant to the Kosh Agreement, Mr. Kosh will be entitled to an annual base salary of not less than $850,000 and will also be entitled to participate in any applicable bonus program that the Company maintains during the term of his employment. He is also eligible to participate in the Company's 2010 Long-Term Stock Incentive Plan (the "2010 LTSIP"), and all employee benefit plans and arrangements of the Company for its senior executive officers. Mr. Kosh will also receive a monthly car allowance of $1,500.

Until the Company's fiscal year beginning on March 30, 2014 ("fiscal 2015"), Mr. Kosh's annual target bonus will continue to be $500,000 up to a maximum of $1,000,000, which may be increased or decreased by 10% based on achievement of strategic goals. Beginning in fiscal 2015, Mr. Kosh's annual target bonus will be 75% of his base salary, which may be increased or decreased by 10% based on achievement of strategic goals, with the maximum bonus payable to Mr. Kosh, including the strategic goal adjustment, being capped at 150% of his gross fiscal year salary earnings. Pursuant to the Kosh Agreement and in accordance with the 2010 LTSIP, beginning in fiscal 2015, Mr. Kosh will be granted an annual equity award with a total target value of $700,000, under the terms of the 2010 LTSP as approved each year by the Compensation and Organizational Development Committee of the Company's Board of Directors.

Under the Kosh Agreement, if the Company terminates his employment for any reason other than death, disability or cause (as defined in the Kosh Agreement), or Mr. Kosh voluntarily terminates his employment for good reason (as defined in the Kosh Agreement), Mr. Kosh will be entitled to continue to receive, in accordance with the Company's normal payroll practices, an amount equal to his base salary for a severance period equal to the longer of the remaining term of the Kosh Agreement or one year, plus an amount, payable at the end of the severance period, equal to the bonus that Mr. Kosh received for the fiscal year immediately preceding the fiscal year in which his employment terminates. In addition, Mr. Kosh will be entitled to continue his participation during the severance period in any group medical or dental insurance plans in which he participated prior to termination.

If Mr. Kosh voluntarily terminates his employment without good reason, or if the Company terminates his employment for cause, he will be entitled to receive only his base salary through the date of termination. If Mr. Kosh's termination is due to his death or disability, Mr. Kosh or his estate will be entitled to receive all payments due to him through the date of his death or termination due to disability. If his employment terminates due to his death or disability, or he terminates his employment due to retirement, Mr. Kosh will be entitled to receive a pro-rated amount, based on the percentage of time that has elapsed during the applicable performance periods, of the unvested restricted performance share units held by him, which will vest at the end of the applicable performance periods, subject to the Company's achievement of pre-established financial goals. If Mr. Kosh's termination is due to death or disability, unvested stock options continue to vest according to their original vesting schedule.

If the Company terminates Mr. Kosh's employment without cause or if Mr. Kosh terminates his employment for good reason within 12 months following a change in control (as defined in the Kosh Agreement) of the Company, Mr. Kosh will be entitled to receive a lump sum amount, payable within 15


days after the termination of his employment (unless required otherwise by
Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code), equal to twice the sum of his (i) annual base salary and (ii) the bonus paid to him for the fiscal year immediately preceding the fiscal year in which his employment terminates. In addition, any unvested stock options and unvested restricted performance share units held by Mr. Kosh will immediately vest, and all stock options held by him will remain exercisable for six months.

Under the Kosh Agreement, the above described amounts and stock awards to be provided to him are subject to his compliance with certain restrictive covenants including: (i) in the event his employment is terminated by the Company due to disability, for cause or the termination by him of his employment without good reason, not to compete with the Company for the remainder of his scheduled employment term; (ii) not to solicit any of the Company's employees for the remainder of his scheduled employment term; (iii) not to disparage the Company following the termination of his employment; and (iv) not to disclose any of the Company's confidential information. Any amounts due and payable to Mr. Kosh upon termination of his employment will be subject to compliance with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code.

The foregoing description of the Kosh Agreement is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Kosh Agreement which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1.
