Multidisciplinary producer Sanghon Kim is the latest artist to team up with Lacoste, joining the classic French label’s L!VE range for a 1980s sport manga-inspired Spring/Summer 2014 collection and corresponding short film. Centered around the theme of soccer, the Kim-directed animated film pits a soccer club against a powerful foe as they sport colorful Lacoste kits – complete with a reinterpretation of the brand’s timeless crocodile crest.
The limited edition collaborative kits and a related range of graphic tees, polos, and more from the French illustrator are now available from Lacoste L!VE stockists across the globe.
The offshoot Lacoste L!ve brand continues its 2013 collaborative series with famous Japanese manga team Tezuka Productions seen in a new collection of short-sleeved tops. Often referred to as the ‘God of Manga’ and the Japanese equivalent to Walt Disney, Osamu Tezuka pioneered many unique techniques within Japanese animation during his lifetime, and is most known as the creator of Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion, and Black Jack to name but a few.
Artistic impressions from the his extensive catalogue will now be featured on both polo shirts and T-shirts in three new stories – King Leo, Crime and Punishment, and The Phoenix. The Osamu Tezuka x Lacoste L!ve 2013 fall/winter collection is currently available through the French brand’s webstore.
