Not So Affordable Capsule Collection
The Tom Dixon for Lacoste polo shirts. Industrial-chic takes on the classic shirt with an eye on technology and functionality (and of course fashion) Take your pick from four limited edition styles, each complete with Tom Dixon-designed packaging. There’s the rough-edged, indigo Eco polo ($198) made of organic cotton and packaged in an egg carton-like recycled box; the Techno polo ($198), a steel-colored ode to Lacoste’s performance and durability in a hi-tech lurex weave, vacuum-sealed in aluminum foil. Both of these designs will be sold at select Lacoste stores. Check the website for details, it's a little too trippy for me... stupid bouncing preppy people. These shirt's souped-up cousins are the Eco polo+ and the Techno polo+ ($255). A mere 1,000 of the + versions will be sold exclusively at Jeffreys ( 449 W. 14th St.), so whether you want it as a gift, a collector’s item, a work of art, or simply a new reason to take up tennis, move fast!
