Editor’s Notes: Lacoste's creative director Louise Trotter has reworked the label's iconic crocodile logo across a range of exaggerated and abbreviated classics for the SS21 collection, limited to 200 pieces worldwide.
Code-named "Croc-couture," Lacoste invited embroidery and feather specialists Lemarié to add some savoir-faire to the sporting apparel resulting in cream sweatshirts and oversized white piqué polo shirts embroidered with geometric crocodile appliqué made from vintage jacquard labels.
Elsewhere, the collection includes elevated Lacoste pieces that speak to the aesthetics of tennis, golf, boxing, cycling, and nautical sports. Shirts arrive with oversized collars and surprising color combinations, and, as per Lionel Messi's latest style offering, there's a new volume to be found in the extremely big shorts.
