Lacoste/Campanas 2

Stumbled upon this absolutely bonkers collaboration between Sao Paolo designer Estudio Campana and the venerable Lacoste. I guess you have to wonder with the turnaround in fortunes of Fred Perry in recent times (think their consistently inspired work with Comme Des Garçons and more recently Raf Simons) that this is a natural place for a heritage brand like Lacoste to go (This is the fourth year of their collaborations). But here’s the difference for me. The choice is not following ‘fashion’ per se, but is a genuinely innovative and bizarre collaboration that really stretches the boundries. I admire both parties for their boldness of vision. There really are pieces for almost every single taste, from the small twist to the full on warped vision. I’ll be looking out for these with interest… Check them out here. (via Dezeen & Selectism)
