For the fall 2012 season, LACOSTE Eyewear debuts a collection true to the brand’s core heritage and design philosophy, while incorporating autumnal colorations like warm ambers and vintage horns.
The iconic petit piqué pattern, inspired by the brand’s classic polo, is reinvented with a new application – a print version in high gloss on zyl temples. An elegant attention to detail is seen through the pairing of striking colors temples and lucid or transparent frame fronts. The layering of materials and incorporation of LACOSTE’s design DNA throughout both sun and optical creates timeless silhouettes for this season.
L667S. Elegantly styled and vintage inspired, L667S exude sold-world glamour with a soft cat eye. True to the brand’s heritage of creating pure, timeless fashion, this elegant style is available in classic colorations of Light Havana, Green Havana, Green Horn, and Black.
L661S.Piping detail enunciates the glamorous design and flirtatious styling of L661S. Contrasting, vibrant colorations set against solid zyl create a dual tonality available in Black, Havana/Pink, Havana/Green, Green/Olive, and Purple/Grey. The gentle curvature of an uplifting brow adds femininity to the pillowed square frame shape.
L2658.Subtle depth and dimension is added to optical styles L2657 and L2658 through strategic placement of the iconic piqué pattern and use of color. The metal croc is layered over piqué onto rich zyl temples in colors of Black, Havana, Green, Blue, and Red, enhancing the “geek chic” styling; while the FW12 ad campaign style, a soft butterfly shape (L2657) is available in Black, Grey, Havana, Green, Blue, and Orchid. Showing strategic design, the piqué is a deeper saturation of color replicated again on frame fronts.
L684S. Inspired by the iconic LACOSTE polo, the piqué pattern takes new form on the temples of this vintage inspired men’s sunglass. A 2-dimensional print of the piqué print is glossed onto temples, illuminating rich temple color combinations off set by contrasting frame fronts. Available in colors of Cream /Butter, Red/Havana, Black/Brown, and Havana.
L662S. The classic wayfarer is revitalized with the proprietary technology detail exclusive to Lacoste – the legendary magnetic temples. Telescopic temples that extend to clasp together with magnetic enclosures, adds fashion to function in this vintage-inspired sunglass.
