The LACOSTE legend is born in 1933, when René Lacoste revolutionizes mens’ fashion replacing the classical woven fabric, long-sleeved and starched shirts on the courts, by what has now become the classic LACOSTE polo shirt. 75 years after its creation, LACOSTE has become a « lifestyle » brand which allies elegance and comfort. The LACOSTE art of living expresses itself today through a large collection of clothing for women, men and children, footwear, perfumes, leather goods, glasses, watches, belts and home textiles. LACOSTE founds its success on the essential values of authenticity, performance, and elegance. The crocodile incarnates today the elegance of the champion, René Lacoste, as well as of his wife Simone Lacoste and their daughter Catherine Lacoste, both also champions, in everyday life as on the tennis courts and golf courses.
