Love the Lacoste and its iconic embroidered alligator? Then this limited edition shirt, made up entirely of them, is for you. Designed by Fernando and Humberto Campana this shirt, along with 3 other designs in the collection (see below), are handmade in Brazil by the Coopa Roca Women's Co-operative. The purpose of the co-operative is to provide a positive work environment for the women of Rocinha that allows them a means of making money while still caring for their children and families. The program currently has 150 members and Coopa Roca hopes it will continue to grow and be a positive example for other low income communities. Prices for the collection varies from $1,900 - $7,500 (the women's shirt shown above is one of a 12 piece edition and comes in one size only for $5000).
