Lacoste Enlists Pop-Artist Yazbukey To Transform The Classic Tennis Ball

Take a fun shot at life.

Hardcore tennis fans, here’s your chance to express your love for the sport with a twist. Instead of the classic crocodile, slightly anthropomorphised tennis balls are emblazoned on the classic cotton piqué polo in this capsule collection. With designer Yazbukey, that pop-art eccentric who collaborated with the brand in 2015, quirky emoji-inspired characters come to life: three balls in a tennis match with a crocodile that’s fallen head over heels in love; one ball with huge red lips; one who’s deathly afraid of the croc; and a suave sunglasses-wearing ball. It’s all a maddening and fun reminder to not take the game (or life) so dang seriously. 

Available at all Lacoste stores from mid-May onwards.
