BAPE X Lacoste – The New Capsule Collection
BAPE Lacoste and kick off a new collaboration sports and casual.
It’s time to collaborations and BAPE if he does not repeat twice. The Japanese brand has just launched its new capsule collection with the historic brand Lacoste. A union so unusual as bold what you created between these two giants clothing casual.
On the one hand the BAPE, which in a few decades it has become one of the king of kings street style, regreted the way you see ( and wear ) clothing casual.
On the other hand however, we find the Lacoste, the brand now affirmation from many years. Historical and classic, with its pole now become a global icon. The brand of the tennis courts, sports clubs and elegance.
It’s so easy to think that this collaboration, entitled BAPE x Lacoste, as these two brands will occupy the same field, is not quite so obvious . Bold and modern, have managed to propose a capsule collection funny, able to laugh at herself and the brands that have thought. Humor and sophistication for a look unique.
The pole of Lacoste remained classic, just like we know it all, remaining true to tradition. The sweatpants instead reflect more the mood of the Japanese brand: in comfortable fabric plush, are perfect for sports or laze simply on the couch.
I do not even miss the caps a model-style “let’s go fishing” typical of Lacoste and another rather more street in line with the philosophy of BAPE.F.
But the real masterpiece of the collection is definitely the sweatshirt. Available in gray or black, both models are equipped with full-zip hoodie. And here comes the fun: a print depicting the crocodile Lacoste, more stylized and aggressive, on a dark background whose printing invokes the skin crocodile same. Brilliant in fact.
Original and innovative, this collection has managed to melt the soul contrasting the two brands, even in the logo. The Lacoste crocodile biting monkey BAPE. A collaboration between titans, unique and fun, which revised the mood of casual in Key humorous.
