Winter Warmth- Lacoste L!VE+ RTW Fall 2016

Media Preview: Part 3




ZERO DEGREE-Lacoste's version of a wonderful winter wardrobe...chunky knits with comfort details, quilted fabrics, warm wools-with flair-retro patches, and warm tones...a city street to ski slope selection of everyday wear...

like how the inside collar is non-itch...in center zip white-in a chunky knit...
retro patch appears on a few pieces...
one can find matchy matchy scarves and sweaters everywhere...we like this Lacoste take-winning blocks of color-and quality is there for winters to come...

puffy in a vintage silhouette...but practical too...large front pockets, insulated two tone jacket with storm flap...
shoes get there own post---love this wool leather mix-up in a hiker hybrid-with pop of white foxing on treaded outsole


Dapper throwback to coats our grandmother wore-classic tweed double breasted wool -lined and fab forever...
mix wool thigh cruising coat/jacket with quilted insulated core for additional warmth...navy-grey jacket....has an attached hood that unzips to form a flattering wide sheltering collar...pictured below



L!VE is Lacoste's focused collection for the under 30 set-but it is collectively our fav-because we like the bolder colors, oversized logo treatments (fun) and the slimmer cuts fit us better. The nautical sailing theme interpretations,  mountain knits with technical puffers are highlights...blend of the sports and urban wardrobes.

nice-the way the center zip is on navy fabric against a soft ¾ women's wool jacket...modern shape clean lines with no buttons...but with roomy side zipper pockets.
varsity jacket in a bold red...

nautical rope knots---motif on a cute grey knit. Love this.

technical lightweight insulated puffer-ring pull on the zipper is a cool pop-on this jacket which is actually very sporty wearable with stretchy -breathable sides...to insulated core...chain stitching is visually interesting too-as well as practical imo-the 'stuffing' won't shift around when washed...something we learned from covering the outdoor market.

another fav...bomber shape sweatshirt kind of jacket..cozy and versatile...


WHAT ELSE-for men...Lacoste basics and leisure separates that of course will be worn all around...

New introductions include for Fall 2016.gym worthy woven mesh  with sweat zones and close, non-chafing fit-Motion collection briefs/trunks in solids, buttery soft cotton essentials-including boxers with classic mother of pearl buttons,  and cool to the touch cotton/Modal stretch-that is naturally moisture wicking.  

Crew and V-Neck Essentials, tops -with color matching boxers and lounge pants...French flair of white piping on pockets...


our vote for most worn casual pants in any guys wardrobe-the wear wherever jogger pants style-drawstring

comfy lounge pants...in premium woven cotton-windowpane print


color-print range-basics come in white, dark neutrals and classic prints...tasteful and comfortable with premium fabrics that invite long wear.
