It would be hard to argue that any brand on planet earth epitomizes the concept of "chic sportswear" better than Lacoste. The iconic brand has proven year after year, decade after decade that style and the pageantry of sport go hand in hand. For the Spring 2016 collection, that point of view became literal as designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista took the Summer 2016 Olympics, and his designs for the French national team as a starting point for inspiration.

The result was colorful, and energetic; alive with the spirit of friendly global competition, peace, and optimism. In short, it was fantastic, but who would expect anything less for such a major global brand?
