02/20 - Astronaut Inspired Sportswear from Lacoste
For fall/winter 2017, Lacoste created a collection inspired by astronaut suits mixed with a 90's grunge. Reminiscent of Kurt Cobain's style, the clothing line has translated this style into baggy high-wasted trousers,checkered luberjack shirts, iridescent ankle boots, and sweaters and jackets splashed with scenes of outerspace.
The homage to the Space Age was a reference to the fashion house's namesake, Rene Lacoste, who joined the aircraft industry after his sporting career. He created Air Equipment, a company that contributed to the development of the Concorde and Airbus airliners.
