Supreme X Lacoste SS18
Another year brings us the second Supreme X Lacoste collaboration. Last year Supreme graced us with a collection that included a selection of vibrant, colour blocked tracksuits, striped long sleeves and an embossed sweater, just to name a few. This year they follow the theme of pastel colours, releasing quarter zips, outer wear, shorts, hats, varsity jackets, hoodies, shoulder bags and of course, Lacoste signature tennis shirt. These will definitely make to be summer essentials, with the bright colours being a statement piece in anyone’s wardrobe.
Highlights include the velor quarter zips, which boast Lacoste staple crocodile on an array of intense hues. In fact, multiple pieces in the collection are constructed using velor, which gives a nice 70’s aesthetic. Included in this is the staple tennis shirt, having a fresh new iteration consisting of in your face velor.
What makes this collaboration different
The 3m Crocodile tracksuit is also another piece that deserves commendation, once more utilizing summer hues and, even better, a matching hat is purchasable. Arriving in colour ways of blue, black, green, white and pink, what’s not to love? Of course, it wouldn’t be a Supreme collection without a jumper sporting the brands name. This year it comes in an array of, once more, essential summer colours, making it slightly more interesting.
And finally, the hoodies. Again, the theme of summer pastels runs throughout. In the top right is the new, reworked Supreme Lacoste logo, that also features on the varsity jackets. What’s particularly nice about this set of hoodies is there are matching shorts – something you don’t see often. But me and many others from the StyleStreet offices are a big fan of the shorts and hoodie look – especially for the summer.
A solid collection that releases in Supreme stores and online on April 19th, as well as a slightly later Japanese release of April 21st.
