For spring/summer 2014 capsule collection Lacoste Live teams up with the French artist Sanghon Kim.
Sanghon Kim directed a short animation film themed around football, in which the white team players proudly sports an unseen jersey, adorn with a reinterpreted-crocodile crest.
Inspired by 1980’s Japanese sport mangas, this collaboration created a new collection of 10 references for men and women.
Sanghon Kim capsule will be released Mid-May 2014 in Canada at selected Lacoste boutiques.
Here is my soundtrack of the day “Waves” by the Dutch hip hop artist and producer Mr Probz. It so easy to love this song. It has this great combo of melancholic sun-kissed guitar hooks, Mr Probz husky vocals and breezy club beats. This could be another leading contender for this summer-anthem song.
Also the video reminds me of one my past relationship, when I got dumped during the middle of a beautiful summer. Everyone was having a great summer season and I on the other hand felt like hell.
Colour blocking is one of my favourite style that luckily keep coming back as a trend. I find it very modern, graphic and fun.
In earlier era the style usually used in actors costumes during 17th century such as the Harlequin costumes by costume Venetian Ludovico Burnacini. When Yves Saint Laurent showed a collection inspired by Piet Mondrian colour blocking sealed it hip place in fashion history.
This spring and summer designer from Milan, New York and Paris showed a lot of colour blocking in their collection. Some designer such as Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein, Dirk Bikkemberg Giorgi Armani for his Emporio Armani collection and Wooyoungmi used it on their streamlined futuristic utilitarian collection. Colour blocking also showcase their skills in fabric research by paneling different material in different tones and colours.
Issey Miyake used the Japanese technique of dying called Ijime shibori where in the black dyed fabric where silk-screened with blue and red to get a result of soft colour-blocked windowpane check.
