Screenshot 2014-09-08 at 16.57.54Two worlds, that of the docks and that of the catwalks, that have always gone hand in hand: indeed, the seafaring people have often been a source of inspiration for designers, and the latest fashion show of French fashion house Lacoste is proof of this ancient alliance. Lacoste’s runway show during New York Fashion Week is entirely inspired by the world of sailing. Indeed, in a setting made of white sails, ropes and sheets, models paraded who brought back to life the typical horizontal sailor stripes, wore fluorescent colors reminiscent of ocean sailors’ oilskins as well as clothing made of water-repellent material .

THE NEW DENIM? OF RECYCLED MATERIAL RECOVERED FROM THE OCEANS
However, Lacoste’s is not an isolated case. Another novelty links the sea and fashion. It is an innovative idea that came out of a collaboration between the pop star of the moment Pharrell Williams and G-Star RAW: a collection that revisits the classic blue denim fabric using recycled materials salvaged from the oceans. It is a high-performance eco-spun material made from recycled plastic bottle fibers.
