An early look at LACOSTE L!VE Osamu Tezuka Collection by Ohya

In the year in which revolutionary anime Astro Boy commemorates its 50th anniversary, high end fashion label Lacoste will be paying tribute to series' creator and "God of Manga" Osamu Tezuka. The brand worked with Japanese designer Hiroaki Ohya on a collection of polos, T-shirts and footwear based on Astro Boy, Black Jack and The Mysterious Underground Man for spring/summer and Jungle Emperor Leo, Phoenix and Tezuka's adaptation of Crime and Punishment for fall/winter.

 

 

The designer, known for his futuristic and experimental work, previously produced an ‘Astroboy by Ohya’ collaboration in 1999.
