Lacoste L!VE: The Rebellious Offspring

If you followed my Twitter last week, I’ve been raving about a new brand called Lacoste L!VE. I was able to go to the official launch at Whitespace, where I donned an almost-full-Lacoste L!VE outfit which apparently surprised a lot of people!

“Is that really Lacoste?!”

Well folks, you can say hello to Lacoste’s rebellious offspring, Lacoste L!VE. It is hipper, quirkier and a lot more fun with this super fresh twist to the signature crocodile that launched the preppy trend way back in the 80s. Think cute twists to the classic Lacoste look that we grew up with.

Before the launch, I was fortunate enough to pick my own Lacoste L!VE outfit to style, which was a dream come true as I immediately fell in love with the gravity-defying interiors and store displays in the new Glorietta 2 store!

And boy, was it my lucky day or what? This top has books printed all over it. BOOKS. Now, where else can you find this print? This is something that all bookworms should definitely have!

I went all-out Lacoste and wore the preppiest stuff that I could find. I wanted to create a mix of formal (with the button-down long-sleeved top and skirt) and casual (with the cap, sneakers and satchel), and I hope I did a good job.

I think it’s only the second or third time I’ve ever posted a shot of myself wearing sneakers. I dared to go bright red this time. What else could be a better statement than bright red shoes?

As I’ve mentioned a few posts back, I’m a little obsessed with flat brim caps now that SNSD’s IGAB brought it back. Lacoste L!VE is a good place to find these caps, to those who are interested to get high quality ones! Available in other colors too, like black, blue and white. :D

Here’s another Lacoste! LIVE outfit where I decided to keep it more simple and me. I used the same space-age sheen bag but styled it with another printed top. The short sleeves are ideal for summer as it’s getting quite warm already!

Paired it with trendy pointy heels for another of that formal-meets-casual effect.

Don’t you just love this print? It is another one of Lacoste L!VE’s original prints that can not only be found in this t-shirt style, but also in a one-piece dress style that’s very chic and appropriate for all occasions. Personally, it reminds me very much of old Japanese patterns. The peach-pink color accents also add a more feminine twist to the normal printed tee which we all love.

Here are some pictures from the event:

Wearing Lacoste L!VE with David (OMG HIS JACKET, RIGHT? I WANT IT) and Lissa. Bumped into our friend Patricia and the 4 of us had to take a photo together as we were all reminded of the good old days where we would attend certain events as a group!

Also bumped into my friend and forever muse Julz who rocked her blonde hair so much  it made me miss that time when my hair was super light too! I feel like she would be the ideal type to wear all of Lacoste L!VE’s products in a heartbeat as her style is quite edgy and fun like the brand!

Bumped into my virtual friend of 3-4 years, KT! The world conspired to bring us together after so many Facebook and Twitter messages to each other. <3

The Lacoste L!VE event was a really a gathering of people like her who evoke a kind of quality that makes you want to take the world very lightly and just have loads and loads of fun!

In the Philippines, Lacoste L!VE is exclusively distributed by Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI) and is located at New Glorietta & Rustan’s Tower Shangri-La Plaza Mall. Do drop by as soon as you can as their recent SS13 collection is to die for!
