Retro New: The Relaunch of Classic '80s Brand Le Tigre

Last week, I was invited to preview the relaunch of the popular ‘80s brand Le Tigre. The brand first debuted in 1977 as an American lifestyle sportswear brand, with their signature item being the classic polo. The brand has expanded their offering over the years while still maintaining its heritage consisting of great quality, collegiate-inspired pieces. As of 2019, the brand has relaunched with a new collection called Retro New, consisting of modern day sportswear pieces with vintage appeal.

Le Tigre gifted me a few pieces from their new collection, so naturally I had to throw a bit of my street style flare into my look.


Thanks to yesterday’s gorgeous weather, I was able to pair the tee with my favorite Kith Women sweat shorts. I built the rest of the look around the shirt, keeping it sporty with my Satin Shattered Backboards—making sure to show a little sock—and my matching camera bag from Urban Outfitters.

One thing I love most about Le Tigre is the brand’s classic, logo mania aesthetic. It’s signature and distinct.
