Change is in the air at Lacoste: In September, longtime creative director Christophe Lemaire showed his final collection for the house, and Portuguese designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista is gearing up to take the reins. In the world of eyewear, too, the sands are shifting. The label relaunches its sunglass range with a new collection—produced by Marchon, the optical giants who create shades for Fendi, Jil Sander, and Michael Kors, among others—that hits stores tomorrow. The specs draw on the French label’s heritage, including its most notable piece: the polo. In homage to the shirt René Lacoste made famous, several of the new sunglasses come in piqué styles—with, of course, a tiny croc to match.
Lacoste sunglasses, $120 to $180, are available tomorrow at select Lacoste locations; for more information, visit www.marchon.com.
