After collaborating with Converse, multifaceted artist Tyler, the Creator is again showing his interest in urban, sporty brands in a collection with Lacoste. The “Lacoste x Golf le Fleur” capsule blends the sporty tennis references of Lacoste with the anti-conformist pop style of the American rapper and designer. The association is brought together with retro-inspired details.
The collection contains 16 pieces of ready-to-wear and accessories, all reinterpretations of classic Lacoste styles. While some of the cuts and materials carry a retro vibe, it’s really the colour palette which calls to mind the tennis scene of the ’80s. The colours have evocative names such as “mascarpone” for a creamy white, “litchi” for a dusty rose, and “geode” for a beige tone.
The collection gives pride of place to short-sleeved polo shirts, t-shirts, sweatpants, shorts, and even bucket hats. A varsity jacket and tracksuit round out the capsule. In a last – but definitely not least – detail, the iconic Lacoste crocodile holds an embroidered poppy in its teeth.
