Over 90 years ago, seven-time grand slam champion René Lacoste decided he’d had enough with the traditional button-up tennis garb. He designed a white, short-sleeved loosely knit piqué cotton shirt with a flat collar and long tail, and the Lacoste L.12.12 was born. The Alligator brand has brought in a wide range of collaborators to celebrate this immortal sportswear garment with a dozen different sneakers. You’ve got musicians like Sebastien Tellier and the Stones Throw label, designers like Tim Hamilton and ato, retailers like colette and Bodega and even sneaker magazines like Shoes Master. Click the jump below to see the entire collection; it really is a huge set and we’ve got detailed images courtesy of the first place to be found pre-selling them, FLAUGE.
