Lacoste Essential Design Footwear
The Lacoste brand has long been associated with easy to wear, sports-inspired casual clothing and footwear. However, in recent years there has been a shift towards collections that also cater to sartorial-inclined gentleman who want to add a touch of laid back Parisian cool to their wardrobe. This season, the Lacoste Essential Design (L.E.D) line delivers yet another mature and sophisticated range of footwear for the modern gent.
The L.E.D range takes classic footwear silhouettes and revamps them through the use of premium quality materials and impeccable detailing. Featuring everything from timeless Oxfords and desert boots to more seasonally appropriate deck shoes and espadrilles, the range caters to every personal style and requirement.
The materials utilised within the collection include fine grain leathers, buttery suedes and high quality canvas, whilst detailing comes in form of contrast rubber soles, hand stitched finishes, fringing and leather accents – giving each style a premium feel.
The palette remains refined and timeless, with most models available in neutral tones of navy, black, white or grey. This is a collection of footwear that will never go out of fashion.
Highlights from the range include the ‘Rene Nautical’, a deck shoe/trainer hybrid that is an adaptation of the iconic style designed by founder Rene Lacoste back in 1963. Available in off white or khaki colour ways, it comes complete with deck shoe styled sidewall lacing, a resin outsole and a leather toe cap for a sleek and ‘grown-up’ feel. This is the perfect smart-casual shoe for the season.
Another favourite is the ‘Somerton’ espadrille. A more mature and sophisticated take on the classic espadrille silhouette you see on high streets up and down the country, it comes in navy canvas with leather accents and heel. An essential for high summer and holidaying, this lightweight, versatile show will take you effortlessly from day to night and from beach to bar.
