Lacoste Releases New Brand Campaign by BETC: Crocodiles Play Collective

Lacoste Releases New Brand Campaign by BETC: Crocodiles Play Collective

Apr. 20, 2021

It is time to embrace and celebrate the differences that bring us together through a communication device designed by BETC that puts the collective at the heart of the campaign.

A cast of seven passionate and creative talents wear the polo shirt with a sense of elegance that is their own. They are captured in their cities, in the surroundings that inspire them daily. Five cities (Paris, New York, Berlin, Los Angeles, London) and seven photographers, to conjure multiple points of view. The Lacoste polo shirt becomes the common denominator of those who share the values of the crocodile.

  • In Los Angeles, rapper and Lacoste fan A$AP Nast, invites his friends DJAVAN and Cory before the lens of photographer Melodie McDaniel. Tattooed on his chest or embroidered on his polo shirts, the performer "always carries the spirit of the crocodile.”
  • Over in Berlin, DJ and entrepreneur Peggy Gou is immortalized by Vitali Gelwich, alongside her “closest friends, the family we choose.”
  • In New York, skater, actor and model Evan Mock brings together his brother, sister and a skateboarder friend for an intimate shoot with photographer Stef Mitchell. Four people "ambitious and always ready to pursue their dreams.”
  • Crossing over to the British capital, Elliot James Kennedy immortalizes the young poet Sonny Hall and his entourage in a typical London atmosphere. For him, to be collective is to feel "connected”.
  • Whilst in Paris, the historical home of Lacoste, French actresses Louise Bourgoin and Mélanie Thierry are photographed with their loved ones by Quentin de Briey and Joshua Woods respectively. Salif Gueye, true to himself, dances in the streets of the French capital with three of his comrade dancers, before the lens of Ilyes Griyeb. For him, his collective is his "family.”

Seven faces, five cities, seven photographers ... for one story only: their own.

In order to set the music for the videos of this campaign, BETC called on J Lloyd. After the release of his mixtape Kosmos, J Lloyd (a member of the duo JUNGLE) is using his solo talents on this original creation without ignoring all the versatility that has made the soulful reputation of this producer.

To produce Crocodiles Play Collective, an international campaign, during the health crisis, BETC and Lacoste looked at all the shootings (New York, Berlin, Los Angeles, London) in remote from the Magasins Généraux in Pantin.

Launched by the seven ambassadors, the campaign will be teased in video on April 19 on their respective social networks and then on April 20 on Lacoste platforms. Crocodiles Play Collective will be visible on billboards at the end of April in France, in May in Russia, Germany and Korea and in June in Spain.
