Michael Stipe, frontman for REM (and one of my favourite musicians of all time) has been chosen by Lacoste to design a polo shirt as part of their Holiday Collector’s Series. This is the third in the series, with Stipe following Tom Dixon and Michael Young.
On the multi-colored printed polo, Stipe “created a monumental two tone photographic image depicting a crowd at a stadium concert from the perspective of a performer on the stage.” The image was originally used in the Visionaire 54 Sport issue. The polo is available for both sexes and comes in a multitude of colors: Ore, Rubine Red, Mother of Pearl and Palm Green. Only 12,000 shirts will be produced in the limited edition run. The polo comes with a price tag of roughly $300, but nevertheless, I know exactly who will be putting this on his wish list this Christmas.
