If you only think of gators when talking about Lacoste polos, think again. Lacoste L!VE, the brand’s younger line, has created a fantastic capsule collection of polos and tees featuring characters from the manga of the great Osamu Tezuka (1928-1989). Our favourite without a doubt is the simple polo with Testuwan Atomu (‘Mighty Atom’ or, literally, ‘Iron Arm Atom’) on the left chest. Get it before it’s gone!
(RRP €140 / £90)
Tetsuwan Atomu / Astro Boy tells the adventures of a robotic boy, created by a scientist to deal with the loss of his son. After realising he doesn’t really like the robot, the scientist sells him to a nasty circus master called Ham Egg, before it was rescued by a Dr. Ochanomizu. The story’s extraordinary longevity and appeal across cultures make it one of the most important manga comics ever created.
