Following a teaser in the recent SS19 collection video lookbook and from Tyler the Creator himself, we now have a full look at GOLF le FLEUR* and Lacoste’s collaborative range. Playfully dubbed "GOLF le COSTE*," the goods utilize lofty tones like “litchi” (a pale pink), “geode” (beige) and “mascarpone” (off-white) to reimagine signature courtside staples with ’80s flair.
The collection embodies comfortable, genderless styling by way of striking tracksuits and Lacoste’s signature polo shirts, elevated by juxtaposed, contrasted colors. Three-fourths of the long- and short-sleeved polo shirts are executed in solid mascarpone, with accents of litchi, while geode grants bolder contrast to the shorts and one of the tri-colored T-shirts. Matching jersey bucket hats further complement the layering pieces.
Statement items come by way of a geode-toned wool varsity jacket, finished with leather sleeves, and a plush cardigan, crafted from furry wool. Matching socks keep the complementary styling consistent, completed by the addition of a revamped take on Lacoste’s classic crocodile logo — "GOLF" lettering is hidden inside the reptilian body, a small poppy flower clutched in its teeth. The varsity jacket takes the co-branding a step further, encircling the croc inside a GOLF le FLEUR*-branded shape.
Take a closer look at the collection below, priced from $48 USD to $650 USD apiece. GOLF le FLEUR*’s collaborative effort hits Lacoste’s web store and select flagships, as well as specialist boutiques like SSENSE, KITH and Concepts on July 17.
Most recently, Tyler collaborated with Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams on "Snowflake" ice cream.
