This is not your parents’ Le Tigre! Making its debut in New York Men’s Week this season since its relaunch in 2019, Le Tigre drew inspiration from the neon-accented 1980s, vintage Americana athletic wear and bold graphic print designs.
Originally launched in 1977, it is safe to say that for Fall 2020, Le Tigre looked at its own archives and updated them for Gen Z. A little bit retro plus a little bit preppy equals a bold approach to streetwear that is uniquely Le Tigre.
Unveiled on February 3, 2020 in Chelsea at #NYMD Collection Showing, Le Tigre presented themed capsules with each capsule offering track suits, t-shirts, hats, bags and outerwear.
The full collection included retro sweatsuit blocking with outdoor and military details, abstract shapes with neon contrast stitching, athletic wear pieces inspired by the graffiti covered blacktop basketball courts, space age inspired pieces with moto-cross details and 90’s inspired styles inspired by the iconic 90’s TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
In addition to the upcoming men’s collection, Le TIGRE provided a preview of select women’s collection from the new women’s line launching for Spring 2020.
