J. Crew and Lacoste Have Teamed Up on the Perfect Wear-Everywhere Polo
Just in time for spring, J. Crew has joined forces with French sportswear label Lacoste on an exclusive polo shirt for women, men, and children that you'll want to wear through the warmer months and beyond. Inspired by a 1983 design of Lacoste's signature style, the polo features a blue alligator logo with the word "Lacoste" embroidered inside instead of the typical green gator as well as a slimmer fit and notched hem.
"I remember saving my babysitting money to buy my first Lacoste," J. Crew's creative director Jenna Lyons says in a blog post. "Although the brand started off as this very sporty, tennis-world thing, it went on to have a big influence beyond that … and I’m pretty sure it was name-checked in a Biggie Smalls song." The Lacoste for J. Crew classic fit polo for women is available in white, a bright orange called sweet persimmon, and heather grey for $98 on jcrew.com.
