Look Book | Lacoste Men Footwear S/S 2015
Many of you know that Yorkdale Shopping Centre houses the Lacoste flagship here in Canada and I OBVIOUSLY have to promote it because well Yorkdale’s location gets its hands on things (LIKE THE RUNWAY pieces) that other boutiques don’t. So you have to make your way to Yorkdale! I know y’all are in full blown winter mode right now and have no interest in summer brights – let alone shoes, but fashion is constant and I wanted to show you a sneak peek into some Lacoste styles that haven’t been seen yet!
With the season being a bright one (and y’all know I can’t stand colour) I can’t help but love some of the styles I’m highlighting, especially with Lacoste’s 3 leading nautical inspirations:
From the city to the sea, the urban Sail & Sea collection combines nautical style and function, adapted for a contemporary lifestyle. Inspired by the timeless elegance of sporting holidays on the Riviera where Lacoste first became de rigueur for the fashionable crowd, this easy-to-wear footwear blends sport and style to offer the ultimate in modern casualwear on deck or in the city. For men, a fresh approach is brought to classic silhouettes combining contemporary style and function for a premium fit and feel. Trend-led, the effortlessly stylish and innovative range works perfectly for the urban gentleman.
Crafted silhouettes: René Lacoste married famous golfing champion Simone de la Chaume, broadening the reach of the sporting heritage he was to leave. For Spring/Summer the Crafted Silhouettes collection embraces golf-inspired design paired with streamlined aesthetics and timeless elegance. Taking inspiration from the golf course, chic silhouettes are finished with impeccable detail for sophisticated yet easy-to-wear styles that pay homage to Simone and, of course, René. For men, expertly crafted footwear with pared-down golfing silhouettes appeal to the casual elegance of today’s contemporary gentleman. Sport-inspired styles are given a high-end look through the use of premium materials and added detailing.

Sailing, tennis and golf styles are adapted for an urban lifestyle, while clean lines and vibrant colour palettes bring Lacoste’s ethos to life. Effortlessly blending form and function these go-to summery styles are a stand out addition to any wardrobe – perfectly complementing summer holiday looks. For men, classic styles have been updated with lightweight material uppers and a sunwashed colour palette perfect for high summer. premium details nodding to Lacoste’s sporting origins combine with innovative construction for a contemporary take on summer staples.
