The limited edition J.Crew x Lacoste collaboration features polo shirts for men, women, and children. The exclusive collaboration recently made its debut as part of J.Crew’s “Discovered” seasonal section. These two notable brands are renowned for designing preppy, classic apparel featuring traditional designs and signature styles.
Tom Mora, head of women’s design J. Crew, remarks, “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 Polo Shirts
Based on 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 beloved French brand on creating a shirt with exclusive details, like a retro logo from its archives and notched “tennis” tails, but updated in a slim fit.
Available in three seasonally-appropriate hues (white, sweet persimmon, and heather graphite), the J.Crew x Lacoste polo shirts for women are an easy way to transition into the new season. Wear under a v-neck cashmere sweater with skinny jeans and boots while the weather is still chilly. As the temps start to heat up, pair with lightweight shorts and gladiator sandals.
Frank Muytjens, head of men’s design J. Crew says, “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 Spring’s sporty fashion trend, the J.Crew x Lacoste polo shirt collection will instantly up your style game.
