Lacoste reinvents the crocodile

Lacoste makes its mark on fashion this year as it celebrates its 80th birthday. So naturally they asked iconic artist, Peter Saville, who has worked with everyone from Dior to Joy Division to help them, help you celebrate. Together they add a spin on what they do best – the Polo.

Instead of changing the color, or shape, Saville went in for the brands crocodile ambassador. The 80th anniversary Holiday Collector N°8 series polo will remain white with a green crocodile. However, the crocodile logo will be transformed to take on different shapes. Its shape evolves into a doodle, blur or line version of itself pushing the boundaries of the brand’s identity. Two collections will be available that include the Holiday Collector series and a truly Limited Edition. Lacoste’s Holiday collector series consists of white polo’s for men and women with eight choices of “crazy crocodiles”. But the truly Limited Edition includes only 80 for women and 80 for men. Each will sport a completely unique logo and a certificate of authenticity signed by Saville himself.

The watch of the moment is here, courtesy of the new Todd Snyder + Timex collaboration. The famed New York-based designer is back again with another iteration of his ongoing partnership with the historic American watch brand, and we think the Todd Snyder + Timex Blackjack Watch is the one timepiece you need to get on your wrist as quickly as you can.

It’s fitting that the designer’s partnership with the American watchmaker pays tribute to sporty, stylish and fast Formula One drivers from decades gone by -- the initial stock of each Todd Snyder + Timex collab has sold out seemingly quicker than the time it takes to say “style upgrade.”
