The rumored Supreme and Lacoste collaborative collection has been confirmed and will arrive as part of Supreme’s March 16th drop. While the Lacoste brand isn’t at the most vibrant point in its long history, it will certainly receive an injection of energy from its pairing with Supreme.
The New York streetwear label provided some notes on the Lacoste offerings, pointing out the history of the company, as well as the background for its famous reptile logo. “Lacoste was founded in 1933 after the meeting of legendary tennis player René Lacoste and André Gillier. Inspired by Lacoste’s nickname, Alligator, and the shirt style worn by polo players in London, Lacoste and Gillier conceived of a polo shirt bearing the now iconic crocodile logo,” wrote Supreme.
True to Lacoste’s history, offerings reflect a heritage preppy vibe and include a Harrington jacket, track jacket, tennis sweater, crewneck, long sleeve polo, track pants, shorts and baseball cap.
What are the must-have pieces? The embossed logo crewnecks (the baby blue!) are pretty awesome though if you already have enough cotton sweatshirts in your wardrobe, the Harrington jacket with the Supreme and Lacoste logo on either side of the jacket is pretty sweet, too.
These offerings will be sold in Supreme’s New York, Los Angeles, London and Paris stores and online shop on March 16th. They hit in Japan on March 18th.
