The Lacoste campaign combines art and performance, with each subject’s unique story reflecting the “Play Big” slogan. Artists Imruh Asha and Ibby Njoya bring the crocodile sculpture to life through their creative use of color and texture.

Photographer Willy Vanderperre captures these moments, highlighting the brand’s bold style, while Antonio Sánchez’s compositions, reminiscent of his work on the Birdman soundtrack, set the rhythm.
