Lacoste Teams Up with Visionaire for 75th Anniversary


For Lacoste’s 75th Anniversary they’ve collaborated with Visionaire to produce brightly-hued Lacoste polos. There are 12 different designs in all, and each design was created by a different artist, ranging from the one and only Karl Lagerfeld to acclaimed director Pedro Almodovar. Some other artists to create designs for the collection are David Byrne, Michael Stipe, and painter Richard Phillips.


The polos will be available in Visionaire issue 54 SPORT, which will be their first wearable publication. They used the most advanced printing technology to produce the full color/coverage photography printed on the lacoste polos. SPORT is produced as four different sets, each containing three printed Lacoste polo shirts embedded within its pages: one large, one medium, and one small, as well as a book featuring all twelve images. The sets will set you back a pretty penny but then again doesn’t everything ?

Also check out the Collette online store to purchase the Lacoste limited-edition line of sports shoes and shirts with Alife Rivington Club New York (A.R.C).
And speaking of Collette..


As if you already didn’t need more reason to go to Fashion Week in NYC. Paris fashion mecca Collette will be doing a one week limited-edition collaboration with the Gap. Talk about day and night–whatever they come up with should be pretty intresting considering the diversity between the two stores. The clothes will only be available for one week starting on Sept 5th.
