French clothing giant, best known for its collared t-shirts with a signature green crocodile up front, has a happy new collection for kids in its racks. This new school year wardrobe draws its inspiration from sports codes. For boys, the primary colours are mixed with more traditional autumn ones such as burgundy, bottle green, white and chiné grey. Sets of irregular stripes decorate a polo shirt or a sweater with elbow pads to be worn with cotton gabardine chino trousers. To ‘L’ badge that decorates the chiné blue and burgundy raglan sleeve polo shirt makes a baseball focus evident.

Small dots are printed all over a polo shirt, a polo dress and a reversible chiné grey fleece padded teddy jacket while bigger contrasting dots appear on a navy fleece sweater dress, a white light fleece three-quarter-sleeve T-shirt or a blue corduroy skirt. Discrete tone-on-tone towelling dots are seen on a reversible extra-light padded jacket, a polo shirt and a dress with an elasticated waistband.

The other collection for boys and girls is centered on adventure activities. The little boys can sport camouflage designs used on a reversible padded jacket, a sweater or a hat or Memphis-inspired micro-patterns on crocodile on a sweatshirt or appear all over a polo shirt.

The girls can go for the rugby stripes that are applied on a polo dress or a knitted skater skirt. The brand has used lurex to get the logo ‘Sports d’hiver Lacoste’ (Lacoste winter sports) to sparkle on the soft pink of a sweatshirt for girls. Similarly, ‘Attention aux crocodiles’ (watch out for the crocodiles) is screen-printed on an orange T-shirt for boys. The collection starts from Rs 2,000 and is available at select stores across India.
