Who would have thought that this year, a brand most famous for its million lapel- based crocodiles would collaborate with Disney! The Parisian brand celebrated its 85th anniversary, while Disney celebrated its 90th. The result? A collaborative collection of instantly collectable sports-inspired. Lacoste not only came out with a collection fit for the best but, used the best of the best as well. They used innovative technologies like 3D printing and professionally done piqué applications.
True to the characters and designer brand, the colour range of the collection are of conventional shades such as navy blue, white, grey, pale pink and touches of green combined with brighter colours such as a clear blue and red.
My personal favourite is the tennis-inspired polo shirts with an applique Mickey mouse embroidery in the place of the Lacoste’s famous crocodile logo. The mickey mouse is made of a two-ply cotton petit piqué, a two-button ribbed polo collar. Not forgetting the brands identifying classic crocodile logo, it has been placed at the bottom right corner of the shirt.
How to style a classic polo shirt:
Navy/blue is the go-to polo shirt colour choice for creating both an intelligent and confident look. It’s a versatile colour that can be teamed with almost any pairing, it is also an appealing alternative to black on hot summer days. For men, navy/blue matches perfectly with a pair of chinos, it can easily be worn throughout all seasons, making it a staple in your wardrobe.
I styled the striped and blue Disney x Lacoste polo shirt along with casual fit trousers and white sneakers, keeping the vibe of the look very relaxed. It can be styled with trousers of your choice and even with a casual blazer. I am very excited about this collection and can’t wait to see what else is in store for this growing collaboration!
