Fashion meets conservationism with the release of the Lacoste Save our Species collection in honour of International Day for Biological Diversity. The limited-edition series swaps the iconic crocodile for 10 endangered species.

Après-sun attitude: designer beach towels hang out in style.

The crocodile brand with roots embedded deep in the sport of tennis has invented another first: a hybrid tennis racquet, the LT12, made from a combination of wood and graphite.

There is nothing quite like a home-cooked meal, and table decor is a noteworthy detail to a well-executed gathering.

The signature Hudson’s Bay stripes have a long history as a Canadian symbol since their inauguration on the Bay’s point blankets in 1780.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: “I’m feeling a bit tipsy,” says Felipe Oliveira Baptista, the heralded new guy at Lacoste. This tipsy feeling is not from downing too many celebratory toasts. (At least, not yet—it’s only 2:45 p.m.) Baptista has just debuted his first collection as creative director for the storied label, and he’s high on pure adrenaline.
