Concepts x Lacoste
We’re kicking off our first collaboration with Lacoste – the marriage of two distinct brands with connected histories and a shared value for commitment, expertise, and excellence. The collaboration is rooted in our shared connection to the city of Boston - in August 1923, a journalist writing for the Boston Evening Transcript
first nicknamed Rene Lacoste “the Alligator,” ultimately inspiring the brand’s iconic logo. 1996 is also a unique year for both brands – September of that year marks the opening of our store in Cambridge MA and it was also the year Lacoste launched their first running shoe, the Velocity.
In addition to the Storm ’96 sneaker (our take on a re-imagined Velocity sneaker) and summer slides, our inaugural collaboration with Lacoste features a range of apparel driven by our streetwear identity and Lacoste’s French fashion savoir-faire. We pulled inspiration from New England summer destinations like Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard, resulting in colors like igloo green, sand, praisun, and tanzanite blue, as well as reflective hits that capture the essence of the sun’s reflection during nightfall. Consisting of apparel classics like hoodies, t-shirts, swimming shorts, a windbreaker and tracksuits, they are all elevated with modern 3M iridescent treatments for a streetwear edge.
