Li Xiaofeng x Lacoste 'Porcelain' Polo

Unveiled earlier this Summer, Lacoste invited Chinese artist Li Xiaofeng to produce a limited edition classic polo for it's Holiday collection.

The design was inspired by the formation of broken porcelains combine as one thunderous significant ancient master work. Featuring favorite icons found on traditional porcelain, lotus and baby prints on blue and white, sculptured to a fine arrangement of print design.

Li is known for buying shards of broken porcelain that he polishes, shapes and pierces, then joining them with a silver wire to recreated landscapes. Between the painting, firing, fragmentation, polishing and shaping of the 317 shards, three months were needed to complete the porcelain polo sculpture, the most expensive and most exclusive to date.

The polo is now available at colette.
