Well, this is not entirely true. For example, Ralph Lauren has licensed the Richemont group to make luxury watches for that brand. While it's true that Ralph Lauren himself probably has no business designing watches, the fact is he doesn't design the watch. Some company under the Richemont group umbrella designs the watch. Ralph Lauren has the final say, and has input on some of the appearance, but the licensed company does the rest.
