What it is: Lacet, a French word that means, quite simply, search tote. It comes from the woven hay "cabas" or baskets used to communication fruit and vegetables from the market. Luxury French luggage houses like Goyard & Louis Vuitton have them as designer bags, attached to bonded leather, often in their sign prints and textures (like Monogram and chevron). The English telephone through them hold-alls. Thus, they're that's just mere shopper; they become status token.
Why: With the spring-summer collection on your mind, Lacoste creative director Felipe Oliveira Baptista visited the Pays-Bas subject of France for inspiration. Thus, this guidance season's "Chantaco" bag takes its term (and a few design elements) for this Lacoste family golf course there, the spot that the crocodile's golf champion wife Frank Thion de la Chaume especially learned from playing.
The bag is also much more limited distribution than Lacoste's prevalent collections - just 50 top level Lacoste stores in the world, including Barcelone and Montreal boutiques. The summer may perhaps be comes in basic black and a periodic white, sky blue or dark blue.
