Earlier this year, LACOSTE announced its collaboration with quintessential luxury retailer, Barneys, for Spring 2010. The capsule collection brings a new level of sophistication sportswear and pays homage to LACOSTE’s timeless, casual chic heritage. The capsule collection brings back three original LACOSTE classic polos including the retro fit polo, which is slightly shrunken with a more fitted, narrower body and shorter length. To go with the polo, the capsule collection also sports a bright, retro flat-front white tennis shorts and a pima cotton v-neck sweater. The classics are brought back with an updated, contemporary dose of sporty elegance fit for the Barneys customer today. The capsule collection is co branded with both LACOSTE’s signature alligator and the Barneys’ logo tag. The LACOSTE classics reinterpreted by Barneys is now available in store at eight Barneys New York flagship stores nationwide and they will be available online starting in mid-April. Even if getting on the courts for a pick up game of tennis isn’t in one’s spring book of activities this year, this is still a classic collection that can be worked into any wardrobe for the warmer weather. Not to mention they will be extremely fitting and appropriate come U.S. Open season.
