In a brawl between a crocodile and a cat, you'd expect the giant green reptile to win hands-down, right? Maybe not in France. LACOSTE L!VE has teamed up with Parisian DJ collective Cool Cats — which includes Pedro Winter, So-Me, and Michael Dupouy — on a nine-piece men's capsule collection available in mid-December that's more 10 mag than tennis.
Featuring the boys' playful graphics, the duds and accessories, which include a wool blend bomber jacket, a varsity-style duffle bag, and bold sweaters, all have a preppy-meets-Pharrell vibe that guarantees the limited-edition range will be crack for collectors. Super super? (Use a french accent on the latter, s'il vous plaît) Oh, and the trio takes on the brand's iconic crocodile, which they paired with their own cat logo for some scary situations — including $69.50 T-shirts sporting a shades-wearing feline devouring the beast and and a kitty reaching into a ziploc bag full of crocs. Ouch. "You can be a hip-hop head, a cute indie girl, or a metal head fan of George Michael, inside," says Pedro of the expected collab's fans. But presumably, you cannot be a crocodile.
