When I think of the brand Lacoste, two words immediately come to mind. Classic and chic. And what could be more classic and chic than sailing on a yacht with your friends over lunch and vino to view the brand’s upcoming footwear collections? Well, that’s exactly what I did last Friday and sorry, I’m not sorry! Decked out in my cropped Lacoste polo and fresh white Grad Vulc’s on my feet (each of the guests footwear was handpicked to reflect our personal styles), I was ready to set sail for the day.
After noshing on a tasty meal from Sud Forno and custom cold pressed juices, the Lacoste team took us through the AW15 product line-up, which used it’s nautical heritage merged with classic winter styles, giving them a modern update. I had my eyes on the leather Rosolinn ankle boots and knee high version which has a riding boot silhouette. Also a fan fave, the patent leather oxfords, that will undoubtedly be on all of our wish list’s this fall. However, it was the sneak peek at the SS16 women’s footwear collection that got me really excited. The high top sneaker (featured below) has me inpatient for next spring. Lacoste goes back to it’s tennis roots in next year’s collection where you will find references to the sport; think influences from the net found on the court to even the grip tape on a racquet, cleverly integrated into the design. The range is so versatile with literally a shoe to fit anyone’s personal style aesthetic.
My Grad Vulc sneaks are available now at Town Shoes locations for approximately $135 CDN. To view Lacoste’s full collection of footwear, apparel and accessories, head to Lacoste.com. Thank you Lacoste for such an amazing day on the water with my babes. Could not think of a more fun way to attend a collection preview.
