Lacoste and National Geographic have joined forces on an eco-responsible capsule collection that celebrates the diversity of the animal kingdom.
The capsule was inspired by the National Geographic Photo Ark, a project with a mission of documenting every species living in the world’s zoos, aquariums and wildlife sanctuaries. For the collection, Lacoste selected four animal species: the Grévy Zebra, the Green and Black Poison Dart Frog, the Halloween Pennant Dragonfly and the Jaguar. The capsule honors the species and highlights their exciting stories through different designs that include bold graphics and vibrant prints.
Launching on Nov. 11 on Lacoste.com and at Lacoste boutiques and select wholesale locations, the collection includes an exclusive assortment of menswear, womenswear and children’s wear.
Each animal species category offers a number of pieces. The part of the capsule inspired by the Jaguar includes a boy’s gray Fleece Sweatshirt that features Lacoste’s signature crocodile logo across the front, reimagined with Jaguar spots.
