För vintern 2022 teamar Lacoste upp med New York City-baserade streetwear-märket Awake NY för en ny kapselkollektion. Det handlar om hela 12 ikoniska Lacoste-plagg som fått en ny tolkning, för gatorna både i Paris och NYC. Plaggen beskrivs som följer:

“Comprised mainly of deep greens, blues, reds and cream, the classic collection is inspired by the French sporting codes of Lacoste’s heritage, reinterpreted by Awake NY for the bustling streets of Manhattan and its surrounding neighborhoods. The classic T-shirts feature Lacoste’s signature piqué cotton, while the roomy fit of the crewneck sweatshirts and fleece bottoms are a nod to classic ‘90s sweatsuits.”

AWAKE NY-grundaren Angelo Baque säger i ett pressutsick:

“Partnering with Lacoste gave us the opportunity to do something unexpected. Their preppy aesthetic is very different from our own. Accessing the archives and immersing myself in Lacoste’s heritage really inspired us to create something that’s both versatile and functional. Any two pieces from the collection can be paired together.”
