Lacoste Replaces Iconic Crocodile Logo With 10 Endangered Species

By Emma Taggart on March 7, 2018



In an effort to raise awareness for endangered species, sports fashion brand Lacoste has replaced its iconic crocodile logo with 10 different animals, which represent species that are sadly facing extinction. Featured on the brand’s classic white polo, the limited edition collection—titled Save Our Species—marks a three-year partnership between Lacoste and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

“For the endangered species of this world, the crocodile abandons its ancestral place,” say Lacoste, who had previously never changed their green croc since its debut 85 years ago. The globally recognized logo was designed as an homage to the brand’s founder René Lacoste, who was dubbed “The Crocodile” because of how he dealt with his opponents on the tennis court. The new, limited edition logos were produced using the same green coloring and embroidery style as the crocodile.

Each of the 10 designs were produced in limited numbers, corresponding to the remaining population size of each species in the wild. For example, just 350 polos were produced featuring the Sumatran Tiger, whose main threats are poaching and deforestation. The smallest batch—at just 30 pieces—features the California porpoise, who due to overfishing is one of the most threatened mammal species ever. Other species include the Burmese turtle, the northern weasel maki, the Java rhino, the eastern black crested gibbon, the kakapo, the California condor, the saola, and the Anegada iguana.

Each Save Our Species polo was retailed at $185, and the total collection of 1,775 are already sold out, with the profits of each sale donated to the IUCN conservation. However, If you’d still like to contribute to the worthy cause, you can still donate via the Save Our Species website.

New York fashion week: industry faces its #MeToo moment

The hotly debated issue will not be hemlines but whether fashion is truly addressing its problems

Jess Cartner-Morley  @JessC_M

Sat 10 Feb 2018 

The most public moment in the fashion industry calendar has arrived at a moment when the industry is in turmoil. The Bottega Veneta catwalk show, held at the American Stock Exchange on Friday night, opened New York fashion week just three weeks after Mario Testino and Bruce Weber, two of the most powerful photographers in the American fashion industry and front row regulars, faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, which they have denied. The most hotly debated issues of this week will not be hemlines, but whether an industry facing its own #MeToo moment can retain its dignity in the oversexed and underdressed environment of fashion week.

The blackout on the Golden Globes red carpet, when actresses wore black as a statement of feminist solidarity, proved the power of fashion as a lever to engineer change. Last week it was announced that the Baftas, which will be held during London fashion week, would have the same dress code. Yet internally, the fashion industry is proving slow to embrace the collective mood of reflection and re-evaluation that the red carpet blackouts signify in the film community. While Condé Nast International and major brands have cut ties with the named photographers for the foreseeable future, a root-and-branch overhaul of an industry that the Vogue cover girl Edie Campbell described in an open letter to Womenswear Daily as “too accepting of abuse in all its manifestations” has not been instigated. “The ritual humiliation of models, belittling of assistants, power plays and screaming fits … we have come to see this as part of the job,” wrote Campbell.

The activist Myriam Chalek is one of those using the spotlight of fashion week to fight complacency in the industry. Her event, the Time’s Up Show, is a catwalk show that doubles as a protest, with models sharing their experiences of sexual harassment. Chalek told the Daily Beast she chose a fashion show format for the event because “many times [women] get blamed for what happened to them. There is a strong connection between the clothes that somebody is wearing and the blame that society puts on the victims.” The Council of Fashion Designers of America has moved to address an issue that has long affronted models’ dignity. For the first time, models will be entitled to private changing areas backstage, a departure from an industry-wide norm in which models are required to change out of their catwalk outfits and into their own clothes in the same backstage area used by designers as a post-event meet-and-greet area and for media interviews. The CFDA has partnered with the advocacy group Model Alliance to provide working models with a respectful and safe working environment.

Prabal Gurung’s past shows have pioneered casting diversity in ethnicity and body size, championed feminist causes and served as fundraising launches for humanitarian relief after the 2015 Nepal earthquake. “Fashion is not the land of the stupids,” Gurung recently told the Washington Post. Gurung sees his New York fashion week show, which last season drew the activist Gloria Steinem to the front row – her first catwalk show, at the age of 83 – as “a platform, a way to speak to issues that are important to me”.

Gurung, 38, who was born in Singapore and has helmed a fashion brand in New York for almost a decade, represents a world that is no longer about hemlines. Fashion week has shapeshifted from a business-to-business model for designers and retailers into a platform for politics, popular culture and protest – the publicity from which, almost as an afterthought, helps shift clothes. Tuesday’s Black Panther show will be the first official fashion week collection to be presented under the name of a Hollywood film rather than a designer or fashion brand. It features clothes inspired by the afrofuturistic world of Marvel’s first black superhero movie from a stable of designers including Ikiré Jones, who told Womenswear Daily that the film was “an attempt to help uplift the voices of people who have been marginalised historically … It’s beautiful aesthetics but it’s a way to talk about the refugee crises, globalisation, ethical labour.”

Gabriela Hearst, whose show will be held in SoHo early next week, told Vogue the new collection was based on the masculine clothes women wore as they entered the workforce in the second world war. “The #MeToo and #TimesUp movements are addressing something that is so ingrained in our society and is especially vital in its workforce. I don’t know any industry, nation or society that hasn’t been affected by gender inequality or abuse.’

The most-anticipated front row moment will come at Calvin Klein. Under Raf Simons, a name that once embodied a milk-fed version of American sex appeal has become a fashion week lightning rod for the liberal, progressive, arthouse leanings of Manhattan. September’s sophomore show, which he dubbed “American horror meets American beauty”, held up a black mirror to the fractious issue of American identity, with reference to Twin Peaks and cowboys, cheerleaders and Andy Warhol. To the rollcall of A-list friends of the house – Gwyneth Paltrow, Brooke Shields and Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael, all take their front row seats – the Kardashian family, who star en masse in the latest advertising campaign, may be added.

The transfer of Bottega Veneta, an insider-favourite name from Milan, to New York this season has softened the blow of losing Proenza Schouler to Paris, but the absence of Rodarte and Altuzarra are keenly felt. Rihanna, whose Fenty show was the out-of-the-box hit of last New York fashion week, is not showing this week. Household names such as Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Coach and Oscar de la Renta can be relied upon to provide catwalk glamour. But with Victoria Beckham moving her show to London next season and Alexander Wang’s show on Saturday night his last before he moves his events to an off-season calendar, the trajectory of once mighty New York fashion week is looking less than positive. Georgina Chapman, whose divorce from Harvey Weinstein has been set in motion, last week quietly cancelled the Marchesa show.

Tick tock truck: Giant clock at a deserted airfield is made up of 14 LORRIES driving in a circle: 

The bizarre clock (main picture) was created by Swedish vehicle firm Scania in an unknown location and relied on a carefully choreographed routine in order for the 90 drivers to keep it 'ticking' for a full 24 hours. Comprising 14 lorries (pictured inset), along with 90 drivers, the huge clock face was created on a deserted air field, on a site measuring 750,000 square feet (70,000 square metres).

The massive timepiece was driven by a crew of 90 for 24 hours 

The huge clock face measured 50,000 square ft (70,000 square m)

The trucks that made up the second hand had to drive on a round track in a perfect circle every 60 seconds for 24 hours

 러시아 민속학 극장 노비쨔 소속 일행이 러시아 북부 아르한겔스크 옘스크 마을에 소재한 말리예 코롈리 목조 박물관을 방문해 마슬레니차 주간이 시작된 것을 경축했다.


마슬레니차는 봄이 왔음을 경축하는 슬라브 전통 축제다. 일주일 간(가끔은 3일) 사람들은 사순절이 오기 전 슬라브 신화와 관련한 의례를 치른다.  마슬레니차 전통 민족 축제에서 가장 중요한 의례는 슬라브 이교 전통에서 유래한 허수아비 인형을 태우는 것이다. 또 마슬레니차 주간 내내 러시아인들은 가족들과 친구들과 매일 먹고 즐긴다. 이들이 놀이를 할때는 러시아 전통 악기인 발랄라이카(3현 악기)와 아코디언. 악사들의 익살과 흥에 겨운 민중들의 ‘플랴스카’ 민속춤이 어울려 장관을 이룬다. 

마슬레니차에 가장 중요한 음식은 둥그런, 한국의 빈대떡과 비슷하게 생긴 전통 음식 블린이다. 블린은 태양을 상징하며 풍요, 복 등을 상징한다. 이밖에도 치즈 등 유제품을 많이 먹는다. 하지만 고기는 먹지 않는다.  동슬라브인들의 달력에서는 겨울과 봄의 교차 지점을 의미한다.

Architecture is one of humanity's most visible and long-lasting forms of expression, spanning the entire length of humanity. Most historic civilizations are even identified by their surviving architectural relics: the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, the Golden Pavilion in Japan, or the Taj Mahal in India. Here, our list focuses on a few of the icons of modern architecture (the last 150 years), the true masters of their craft. If you ever wanted a crash course in the icons of modern architecture here it is.​

Mount Rushmore Being Carved (1932)

Specifically this is the head of George Washington. Just look at the size comparison between America’s first president and those construction workers.

The First Ever Walmart (1962)

Hard to imagine that from this simple image emerged a supermarket global empire. Also note that this is the first colour photo we’ve included in this article so far.

Construction Of The Statue Of Liberty (1884)

What’s even more amazing about this image is it shows the statue being constructed in Paris. We wonder how they delivered it to America. We’re pretty sure Fed-Ex wasn’t around back then.

The Beatles – Abbey Road (1969)

No, this is not the famous Abbey Road photo simply reversed. It’s the Beatles walking the other way across the now-famous zebra crossing (here’s the album cover itself. Note the position of the white Beetle in both images). Don’t think this is anything special? Well in 2012, the photo sold at auction for $25,000 US.

Titanic Survivors Boarding The RMS Carpathia (1912)

Not everyone perished on that fateful day in 1912 when the Titanic went down. Here we can see some of the survivors being rescued by the RMS Carpathia.

Titanic’s Iceberg (1912)

Speaking of the Titanic, this is thought to be the very iceberg that sealed the famous ship’s fate. It even appears to have some dents in it.

Family Photo Left On The Moon (1972)

This family photo was left on the moon by Apollo 16 astronaut Charles Duke in 1972. It’s even sealed up to keep it protected.

The First Photo Of Outer Space (1946)

How could they possibly take a photo of the Earth from space before there was even a space program? The story goes that soldiers attached a camera to a missile before it was launched. Take that Google Maps. Speaking of which…

Google Team (1999)

Who knew how much this relatively modest team at Google headquarters would go on to revolutionise the way we use the internet?

he MGM Lion (1929)

You know that lion roaring at the beginning of old films? Yep, this is the moment these cameraman captured that iconic movie intro.

Hitler’s Bunker (1945)

This is thought to be the first photograph taken of Adolf Hitler’s underground bunker after his death. Doesn’t it just send chills down your spine?

Golden Gate Bridge Under Construction (1937)

This must have been such a mammoth task to undertake. Who would have thought it would eventually be declared one of the wonders of the modern world?

The Federal Security Service of Russia (FSB) is the main successor agency of the Soviet Committee of State Security (KGB). Its main responsibilities are counter-intelligence, internal and border security, counter-terrorism, and surveillance. Its headquarters are on Lubyanka Square, downtown Moscow. In 2003, the FSB's responsibilities were widened with the integration of the Border Guard Service and a major part of the abolished Federal Agency of Government Communication and Information (FAPSI).

The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) supplies the British govt with foreign intelligence. It operates under the formal direction of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) alongside the internal Security Service (MI5), the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) and the Defence Intelligence (DI). It is frequently referred to by the name MI6, a name used as a flag of convenience during the Second World War when it was known by many names. The existence of MI6 was not officially acknowledged until 1994.

1. Brussels, Belgium
According to the annual INRIX Traffic Scorecard, drivers in Brussels face the worst traffic jams in the world.




2. Antwerp, Belgium
It’s a mystery why the two cities that suffer the most road congestion on the planet are located in the kingdom of Belgium. Perhaps we should call in fictional Belgian detective Hercule Poirot to solve the case. 



3. Los Angeles, USA
Unfortunate commuters in the City of Angels on average spend 59 hours a year sitting in traffic as opposed to times when roadways are clear – whenever that might be.



4. Milan, Italy
The fashion capital of the world is also one of the most traffic prone cities according to the INRIX Traffic Scorecard. Maybe they shouldn’t let all those sheep onto the streets during rush hour



5. London, U.K.
Not only do Londoners suffer from among the worst traffic jams in the world, as a nation the U.K. places fifth among all European nations in highway headaches.


6. Paris, France
We’ve driven through Paris and while the scenery is indeed belle, the traffic is truly merde.



7. Honolulu, USA
While it ranks as the 53rd most populous city in the U.S., Honolulu is second only to L.A. in having the most congested traffic corridors in the nation, with commuters in Hawaii’s largest city wasting an average of 50 hours a year during peak travel times.



8. Rotterdam, Netherlands
The second largest city in the Netherlands is known as a busy shipping capitol, yet its highway traffic is among the worst on the planet.



9. Manchester, UK
Perhaps the roads are so crowded there because everyone is driving to see Manchester United play football.



10 San Francisco, USA
Certainly the “San Francisco treat" is not its traffic, as commuters face an annual average 49 hours delayed in highway backups.
