Lacoste‘s iconic polo shirt and crocodile logos have stood the test of time, but the French clothing label’s presence has arguably dwindled in the past few years. With the exception of a “Save Our Species” collection and a little help from a Supreme collaboration this year, Lacoste’s relevance in the fashion sphere has been in dire need of a brand revival. This Spring/Summer 2019, however, delivered exactly what the brand needed — a refreshed and youthful take on its iconic silhouettes.
Debuted via a lookbook shot by Craig McDean, the Lacoste SS19 collection presented a unisex offering of flagship tennis pieces in modern, oversized tailoring and clean, street-informed styling. Notable garments include an updated, baggy take on the signature L1212 piqué polo, technical shorts, side-striped track pants, a logo-emblazoned denim set, wide-leg overwashed jeans and a slew of monochrome sportswear sets and suits. The famous crocodile logo remains intact and visible on a handful of accessories such as bucket hats, caps and belts.
