On day 21 of our Christmas Calendar we have this limited edition polo shirt for you by LACOSTE x LI XIAOFENG. It is available in the women or men´s version.

For the 5th edition of their Holiday collector’s series, Lacoste has asked the Chinese artist, Li Xiaofeng, to reinterpret the Lacoste polo. This mural artist is known for buying shards of broken porcelain that he polishes, shapes and pierces, then joining them with a silver wire to recreate landscapes. As the Chinese porcelain is deeply embedded in the Chinese history, Li chooses blue and white shards with lotus and children designs from the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644 AD), Kangxi Period (1722 AD) and the Qing Dynasty (1644 – 1911 AD) for his Porcelain Polo.
“The lotus grows from mud underwater to emerge as a flower. It symbolizes purity and rebirth,” he enthuses. Because the infant mortality rate was high during the two dynasties, images of babies – which represent fertility – are used a lot in the ceramic motives. “The Chinese like to decorate their ceramics with babies, hoping that they would be blessed with children,” he adds. The printed Porcelain Polo is limited to 20,000 pieces for both men and women, and comes packaged in a silk pouch stamped with the red seal Li Xiaofeng Lacoste logo.

LACOSTE is a lifestyle brand, born of the inventiveness of a tennis champion, René Lacoste, who created the first polo shirt ever, initially for himself and for his friends, to be both relaxed and elegant on and off the tennis courts. Nicknamed the Crocodile by the press in the late 1920’s when he was a multiple Grand Slam tennis champion, René Lacoste had the animal embroidered on the blazer he wore on court, before making it the logo of his famous polo shirt. Lacoste is famous today for its iconic polo shirt, available in a wide colour palette every season, but more broadly offers sportswear apparel for men and women, as well as shoes, eyewear, watches, fragrances, handbags and luggage, belts and home textile.
