Uptown funky capsule
Bruno Mars has launched his very first capsule collection with Lacoste. Well, strictly speaking, it's the US pop star's alter ego, designer Ricky Regal that has collaborated with the French fashion house. "When I'm on stage my name is Bruno Mars. When I’m making lavish luxurious garments, I go by Ricky Regal" says Mars.
The range is testament to Brun... sorry, Ricky Regal's flamboyancy and style. It's a lineup of bold, ready-to-wear streetwear, including slides, socks and sunglasses, and comes in velvet, silk and cotton fabrics.
Mars said of the collaboration “I’ve been very fortunate to have been asked to do collaborations in the past, but it always came with guidelines,". He continues "Lacoste was the first and only brand that said, ‘Bruno we want you to make this truly yours.’ The respect of such creative freedom coming from a heritage fashion house was an honor”.
