Lacoste X Nat Geo: The Nature-Loving Fashion Collab We Never Knew We Wanted
Express your love for the natural world with this very special capsule collection between Lacoste and National Geographic. On the canvas of Lacoste's timeless sports silhouettes, Nat Geo comes in and enriches the fabric with majestic prints from the animal kingdom. The result is a celebration of species other than ourselves and a reminder of our duty to take care of our environment and co-inhabitors.
Including menswear, womenswear and childrenswear, the Lacoste X National Geographic capsule collection is inspired by Nat Geo's ambitious Photo Ark project, a long-term effort by the publication to document every species living in the world's zoos, aquariums and wildlife sanctuaries. Award-winning photographer and National Geographic Fellow, Joel Sartore, spearheads the project, and it is from his archive of over 10,500 documented species that the four animal prints featured in the capsule collection were derived.
Find the Grévy’s Zebra (Equus Grévy), the Blue and Black Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates auratus), the Halloween Pennant Dragonfly (Celithemis eponina) and the Jaguar (Panthera onca) in the forms of polo shirts and outerwear. Every garment within the collection comes with a special tag detailing facts about the featured species. Did you know that most Poisonous Dart Frogs aren’t poisonous at all? In addition, as a subtle nod to the National Geographic's iconic logo and colour, yellow details are cleverly inserted into each of the pieces. Try to spot them all as if you were one of Nat Geo's field photographers with their sharp eyes.
In natural progression, all the materials used in the collection are environmentally responsible. The polyester of the bags are recycled, and the organic cotton and rubber used in the polos and footwear are certified sustainable. Lacoste and National Geographic wanted to make sure that all aspects of the collection drive home the point about an environment worth taking care of.
