The recently launched J.Crew x Lacoste collaboration features polo shirts for men, women, and children. The exclusive collaboration made its debut as part of J.Crew’s “Discovered” seasonal section. These notable brands are best known for preppy, classic apparel featuring traditional cuts and signature looks.
Tom Mora, head of women’s design J. Crew, exclaims, “Lacoste is an iconic heritage brand with a long company history which we admire. We were honored to collaborate with the Lacoste team to bring back an archival alligator which will be exclusively for J.Crew.”
J.Crew x Lacoste
Inspired by a polo player’s uniform, the Lacoste shirt was an innovation on the tennis court, one that eventually became a staple in closets everywhere. In the spirit of Lacoste’s modernizing impulse, J.Crew partnered with this iconic French brand to create a shirt with exclusive details, like a retro logo from its archives and notched “tennis” tails, but updated in a slim fit.
Available in seasonally-appropriate hues (such as white, sweet persimmon, and heather graphite), the J.Crew x Lacoste polo shirts for women are a seamless way to transition into Spring. Sport the shirt with a v-neck cashmere sweater, skinny jeans, and boots while the temps are still cool. As the weather begins to heat up, coordinate with lightweight shorts and gladiator sandals for an easy, breezy look.
Frank Muytjens, head of men’s design J. Crew shares, “I’ve always loved the rich history of Lacoste, and I especially love wearing my vintage Lacoste polos, the softer the better. They let us go through their archives to bring back an old crocodile, which is blue, not green. It’s a nice throwback.”
Launched in 1983, J.Crew is an American multi-brand, multi-channel, specialty retailer. The company offers an assortment of women’s, men’s and children’s apparel and accessories, including swimwear, outerwear, shoes, and more. In contrast, Lacoste is a French clothing company that was founded in 1933, selling high-end clothing, footwear, perfume, leather goods, watches, eyewear, and most famously polo shirts. Both brands are synonymous with an upscale, affluent lifestyle, making them the perfect fit for this type of collaboration.
In keeping with this season’s sportif trend, the J.Crew x Lacoste polo shirt collection will totally up your style game both on and off the court.
