Tom Dixon Lacoste

November 9, 2006

Contemporary designer Tom Dixon works with Lacoste as the first designer to ‘reinterpret’ the classic polo for the Holiday Collector’s Series. The results are two styles of polo shirts constructed of materials that are durable and ecological. The Techno Polo combines the hi-tech weaving of lurex fibres and cotton while the Eco Polo makes use of indigo dye and adds stitching along with rougher edges on the sleeves for a more ‘distressed’ feel. These two styles are quite refreshing when the majority of the polos in the world share similar styles and materials. In addition, both styles will come in their own distinct packaging. These will be in stores on selected stores on November 15th, however I believe that they are out already in Hong Kong at Juice. More info at Tom Dixon Pour Lacoste.
