APC x Lacoste: The meeting that takes place
A new capsule full of surprises. After Catherine Deneuve, Susan Kohler and Gwyneth Paltrow, it’s Lacoste’s turn to join the long list of personalities and brands associated with APC.

This cooperation is also a fusion of the two universes. Sophisticated Lacoste sportswear imbued with the emblematic codes of the brand founded by Jean Twito, distinguished by its minimalist accents and military references. Of course jeans, polo shirts or even branded striped shirts will be included, but in a whole new dimension. Like this XXXL denim bag. Gabardine jackets, dress shirts and even a candle complement this collection. Summit meeting.
Collection available from June 8 in stores and on the website apc.fr.
