The clothing label, Lacoste, is now synonymous with high fashion but the label has a unique history spanning all the way back to trailblazing tennis player, Rene Lacoste. Lacoste is now one of the world’s most popular labels.
Lacoste, and the instantly recognisable crocodile motif, is now one of the most popular clothing lines in the world and Lacoste polo-shirts are immensely popular amongst those in the fashion know. Over the 80 or so years that tennis player Rene Lacoste first wore his self-designed clothing in the 1927 U.S Open tennis tournament; it’s safe to say that the Lacoste brand has come on leaps and bounds and now incorporates fragrances, shoes, luggage and much more besides.

Lacoste – A Meteoric Rise
The Lacoste fashion label is fairly unique in that it was born as a result of a sports star with his own unique sense of style. Rene Lacoste was a tennis star in the 1920’s when he decided to design his own clothing to be worn on court and the t-shirt that he wore was a radical departure from conventional tennis fashions of the time. The crocodile logo so entrenched in the Lacoste clothing line first began when the tennis star’s friend designed a crocodile design which he then had embroidered onto the blazer he wore whilst playing. It wasn’t until Rene Lacoste’s son, Bernard, took over the company that it really began to come into its own as a fashion label. Lacoste was one of America’s biggest fashion labels during the 1970’s and 80’s and seldom would a wardrobe be found without a Lacoste polo-shirt.

Lacoste – Style with Substance
Lacoste clothing line today is one of the most popular in the UK and USA and they offer a fantastic range of clothing and footwear to fashion conscious individuals everywhere. The world famous crocodile logo can still be seen adorning the chests of sports stars, particularly in the fields of golf and tennis, today as it offers a stylish and comfortable solution to sporting needs. Lacoste footwear is equally as striking as their clothing brand and incorporates the simplistic designs without jeopardising the style of the garment.
