Fashion Essentials: Lacoste Pre-Fall Collection

STRIPES SENSATION. Synonymous to sailors, stripes are here to stay in the pre-fall 2013 collection of Lacoste.

It twists the use of the lines to partly retro, partly contemporary. Striped polo shirts and long-sleeve T-shirts garner casual mood, alongside quilted flannel blazers and protective windbreakers to tackle cooler temperature. A black jersey sweater is one of the hits, teasing the eyes with white-stripes illusion all over it. The house, however, still holds tight to the nautical palette, with a refreshing addition of burgundy and burnt orange shades. Besides the clothes, essential accessories in the collection are also the messenger bag and smooth leather sneakers which go effortlessly with any outfit.
