Le Coq Sportif x LC23 Argentina Pack
Football fever is at full pitch and brands across the continent are taking note by rolling out some beautiful game-inspired garments. One of our favourite footy-inspired collections this summer is the Le Coq Sportif x LC23 Argentina pack, a celebration of the 30th anniversary of Argentina’s legendary World Cup win in 1986 in Mexico City.
Yes, French giants Le Coq Sportif have teamed up with Italian brand LC23 for a collection in La Albiceleste’s instantly recognisable, iconic colours. The collaboration includes a jersey, a track suit, and crewneck sweatshirts, all made in France in Le Coq’s workshops in Romilly-sur-Seine.
If you’ve not come across LC23, the brand is the brainwave of designer Leo Colacicco. Founded in 2010, LC23 has started life as exclusively a shirt brand but as this pairing up with Le Coq illustrates, the brand is looking to expand their lines into other apparel. With a focus on craftsmanship and passion, the name LC23 derives from its founder and his lucky number.
LC23 and Le Coq’s Argentina collection combines retro details that reference the year 1986 with the modern, top-quality materials that LCS does so well. LC23’s signature ‘handmade with love’ cross-stitching is added to the back of each item, stitched in Italy.
Our favourite in the collection is the throwback OG Jersey Optical in White/Blue for £75. Evoking memories of Maradona lifting the biggest prize in the game, you could wear this beauty on any casual occasion.
We also love the Away Sweat Dress Blues for £115 and the Home Sweat Optical in White/Blue for £13, a sweatshirt which bears the iconic Argentine stripe, made up of White and Azure stripes sewn together, with an oversized Le Coq Sportif logo on top.
The Le Coq Sportif x LC23 Argentina collection is due to go on sale from Thursday 7th July, the date the Argentine team last became world champions. The collection will be sold in select retailers including online at the Hanon Website.
