Lacoste partners with Walk in Paris’ design duo for limited edition collection
Lacoste, the brand known for its crocodile emblem, will launch its '90s revival inspired collaborative collection with Walk in Paris on April 9. The brand partnered with Walk in Paris’ design duo Léo Handtschoewercker, known as Léo Walk, and Gary Neveu, who have both headed their ready-to-wear brand since 2013.
The collaborative collection is designed to resonate with the generation of the two designers who said, “We were born in the '90s and the first time we saw Lacoste was in the playground.” This inspiration manifests in the form of an upcycled capsule wardrobe made from Lacoste pieces from the '80s recovered from various thrift stores and reworked with new cuts and materials.
The design duo made a total of 11 pieces for the collection, produced in ultra-limited edition quantities. Garments include Lacoste’s iconic polo shirt as well as a retro cap, two bucket hats, an old-school style sweater, two pairs of fitted trousers, a tracksuit, and a number of zip-up jackets.
“A versatile and poetic wardrobe” is how Lacoste describes the collection. “Small touches and full looks in cream, chestnut, red berry, and crocodile green blend into each other to form a vintage aesthetic intended for all generations.”
