Lacoste Unveils Collection with 20th Century Pop Icon Keith Haring
Lacoste has unveiled a brand new collection with 20th century pop icon, Keith Haring. A part of the legendary New York art scene in the 1980s, Haring’s graffiti and pop-art-influenced famous animated figures adorn some of Lacoste’s signature pieces, with tees, jackets, trainers and even watches available in the collection.
The Keith Haring x Lacoste collection fuses Haring’s famed brightly coloured cartoon ﬁgures who express his energy, zest for life and spontaneity with Lacoste’s retro-luxe styling. The French label has delved into Haring’s back catalogue and transposed both famous and lesser known artworks onto a wide range of clothing and accessories for adults and children.
In line with the fashion industry’s 80’s revival and the spirit of urban culture, the collection features Haring’s famous figures spread across polo shirts, T-shirts, shirts, sweatshirts, dresses and swimsuits either multi-coloured or in negative. They also appear on the lining of a bomber jacket, a sneaker or a reversible tote bag.
There’s also three watches are also available for younger people, while Haring’s equally legendary “Barking Dog” and “Heart” drawings are displayed on a T-shirt and are discretely applied on the collar of a polo shirt and the back of a tennis shoe.
The pop-influenced Keith Haring x Lacoste collection will be available from Wednesday 27th March over at the Lacoste Website and in a selection of Lacoste stores.
