FLAGGED DOWN BY A CROCODILE – Lacoste polo capsule collection

2012 promises to be competitive. French brand Lacoste has decided to hoist the flags and make its emblematic crocodile the standard bearer of 16 nations.

3 POLO SHIRTS TEAM UP FOR THIS CAPSULE COLLECTION: the croco flag polo, the flag polo, the limited edition polo shirt.

The Croco Flag Polo
F or athletes, big and small, this classic white cotton pique has LACOSTE’s signature little green mascot swapping his scaly shirt for the colors of a country.

The Flag Polo
Graphic and colorful, the entire shirt sports a revisited version of one of the 16 selected nations’ flags. This shirt caters to the most dedicated of supporters, those unafraid to flaunt their true colors.

The Limited Edition Polo Shirt
As the outsider, this limited edition is presented in an engraved Plexiglas transparent display case.
The 16 selected countries’ colorful pennants are highlighted by the shirt’s black and white printed patchwork of world flags.

Accessories are also on the starting block as two bags round off this winning series:
A small pique PVC tote bag with an all-over flag print will reach out to the more feminine supporters, and an airline bag with the be-flagged crocodile is set to appeal to the sportier temperament.

A collection available in LACOSTE shops around the world from April 2012.
