The Royal Tenenbaums 1991 + Lacoste FW 2015

René might have done sporty chic first, but the Tenenbaums did it second.

Winter tennis was the theme of Felipe Oliveira’s latest collection for Lacoste, “A mix of bourgeois and street kid,” a little around the line of Richie and Chas Tenenbaum, between the dressed up tennis outfits and the red graphic tracksuits.

The super stylish Margot was somehow present, under a furry camel coat and behind some of the sporty dresses and preppy ensembles.

This one in the middle was my favorite:

Though Oliveira was concentrating in the brand’s roots -René Lacoste’s stylish sport attire from the thirties-, everyone was thinking about the Tenenbaums. Whether he had them in mind or not, what was more interesting, beyond the big look-alikes from above, were the gabardine coats over cotton tracksuits, the camel trench and pants, paired with a t-shirt and tennis shoes, the sweatshirt/cape hybrid and the wrap around asymmetrical dresses, because they gave the collection such a retro futuristic vibe, that they brought Tenenbaums to 2015.


Looking at this makes me think Wes should consider a sequel, and a wedding between Margot and Richie would be the most sensible thing to do. We have been waiting so long.
