CAMPANAS + LACOSTE

Lacoste

What to buy the Design Snob in your life this holiday season…

The CAMPANAS + LACOSTE Limited Edition Polo Shirt.

For the fourth Holiday Collector’s Series by LACOSTE, the Campanas, Fernando & Humberto Campana, have created an exclusive range of Lacoste polos. The special edition polo is based on their famous Alligator Chair, which shows how the reptiles pile up in mud beds during the dry season in their natural habitat.

Based in Sao Paulo, Estudio Campana started crafting its’ own line of editions and unique chairs and objet d’art for international galleries including Albion Gallery in London and Moss in New York in 2002.  Nowadays, their pieces are in permanent collections of renowned cultural institutions such as the Moma in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris or the Vitra Design Museum in Rhein, Germany.

CAMPANAS Artists

Their work incorporates the idea of transformation and reinvention.  Giving preciousness to poor, day-to-day or common materials.  Not only is their work creative in design, but also very Brazilian.  This is definitely reflected in the design of the Lacoste polos.

Womens Ltd Ed. Lacoste polo

Lianas vines that grow in trees in the tropical rainforests, is the inspiration for the pattern.

Mens Ltd Ed. Lacoste polo

The inspiration for the groupings of crocodiles is the Anavilhanas islands on the Amazon.

Mens super Ltd Ed. Lacoste polo

This one is made to order only!  You will have to be one of the 24 men and women to get your hands on the hand-crafted shirt made completely from crocodile logos, recalling the lace work of Northern Brazil. The limited and super limited editions of Lacoste Holiday Collector Series are produced exclusively in cooperation with Coopa-Roca, a socially responsible sustainable development organization based in the Rocinha Favela of Rio de Janeiro that provides work for craftswomen and seamstresses who live in that underprivileged neighborhood.
