So naturally they asked iconic artist, Peter Saville, who has worked with everyone from Dior to Joy Division to help them, help you celebrate. Together they add a spin on what they do best – the Polo.Instead of changing the color, or shape, Saville went in for the brands crocodile ambassador. The 80th anniversary Holiday Collector N°8 series polo will remain white with a green crocodile. However, the crocodile logo will be transformed to take on different shapes. Its shape evolves into a doodle, blur or line version of itself pushing the boundaries of the brand’s identity. Two collections will be available that include the Holiday Collector series and a truly Limited Edition. Lacoste’s Holiday collector series consists of white polo’s for men and women with eight choices of “crazy crocodiles”. But the truly Limited Edition includes only 80 for women and 80 for men. Each will sport a completely unique logo and a certificate of authenticity signed by Saville himself.If you’re looking for holiday gift ideas for the man that leans towards preppy one of these makes a one-of -kind gesture. Lacoste honors its original polo exclusively made for the English football team by keeping white color and green logo. The brand only begun to add color in the 1950s. You can pick one of these up at any Lacoste boutique this November.

THE MAYOR OF Paris has joined France’s interior minister in calling for comedian Dieudonne, whose vitriolic brand of humour targeting Jews has caused outrage, to be banned from the stage.Dieudonne has been part of France’s comedy scene for years, but while he started out with a Jewish comedian in sketches that mocked racism, he gradually veered to the far-right and alienated some fans with anti-Jewish comments his latest being a joke about gas chambers.Speaking on Europe 1 radio, Paris mayor Bertrand Delanoe likened Dieudonne to a criminal who “defends crimes against humanity”.“We must ban the performances (of the comedian),” he said, echoing recent comments made by Interior Minister Manuel Valls.Dieudonne has been fined several times for defamation, using insulting language, hate speech and racial discrimination, and a provocative arm gesture he makes has been described as an upside down Nazi salute.Dieudonne argues that the horrors of the Holocaust are given too much focus to the exclusion of other crimes, like slavery and racism, and says his “quenelle” gesture merely represents his anti-establishment views.The gesture has landed several personalities in hot water, including footballer Nicolas Anelka, who used it to celebrate a goal.“SOS Racisme”, an organisation that fights racism, announced on Sunday it would take to court anyone who spread pictures of or did the “quenelle” in locations such as synagogues or Holocaust memorials “that leave no doubt” as to the anti-semitic nature of the gesture.Valls, meanwhile, has said he is examining options to ban performances by a man he brands as a “little trader of hate”, outraged by Dieudonne’s latest jibe against Jewish radio presenter Patrick Cohen.“When I hear Patrick Cohen speak, I tell myself, you know, the gas chambers… A shame,” Dieudonne had said in comments filmed secretly at a show and then aired on French television.Valls has also asked Dieudonne to pay some €65,000 euros he has run up in fines.Officials in several cities where Dieudonne is set to perform during a nationwide tour this month have also said they are trying to ban his show.And veteran Nazi hunters Serge and Beate Klarsfeld have called for a protest on Wednesday at a theatre in the western city of Nantes, where Dieudonne is due to perform.The controversy comes at a sensitive time for France, where racism has shot to the fore after the country’s black justice minister was the victim of a series of racial jibes — prompting President Francois Hollande to pledge intransigence on racism in his New Year’s address.© – AFP 2014Read: Anelka defends ‘quenelle’ gesture, says he’s not anti-Semitic >
