LACOSTE lives in colour year round, as creative director Christophe Lemaire deftly demonstrates with his Fall/Winter 2010 collection that takes iconic sportswear staples and stretches them beyond their imagined boundaries.

Volume and oversized proportions are the key words of the comfy casual, yet sophisticated chic Club line, emphasizing sleeves for women, while for men it is all about deconstructing and rethinking the jacket. Vivid colour blocking takes center stage, with fuschia, yellow and green colour on double-faced wool polos, elongated sweatshirts, worn as mini-dresses and high-heeled desert boot-brogue hybrids in suede.
