For its annual “Holiday Collector” edition, LACOSTE takes us on an unusual journey, an idea that came about after Felipe Oliveira Baptista, the house’s creative director, met Jean-Paul Goude. The former gave the latter carte blanche to design not only the logo on limited-edition items – polo shirts, bomber jackets, bags and clutches – but also their packagings and ad campaigns for Christmas.
Jean-Paul Goude, “graphic artist” as he likes to term himself, left his mark on the 80s and 90s through his work with his muse Grace Jones and the various TV spots he did for brands such as Chanel, Perrier and the Galeries Lafayette. Today he meets the famous crocodile.
The collection shows a dressed-up and sophisticated, two parading saurians, straight out of Jean- Paul Goude’s imaginary world, are embroidered upon the items of a capsule collection comprised of men’s, women’s and children’s polo shirts, as well as a tote bag, a clutch and a limited edition bomber jacket. This collection will be available in all LACOSTE stores worldwide from November 2016 onwards.
