Lacoste Icons

Which ones do you own? Which ones are you missing?

01. The polo shirt, the Lacoste original

Petit Piqué, major style

This is where the Lacoste story begins. In 1933, French tennis champion René Lacoste invented the polo shirt. And with it, a new look that combines style and comfort was born. Now, nearly a century later, the Lacoste polo shirt comes in an infinite number of colours and materials. Forever honouring its history, the polo evolves with the times.

02. The tracksuit, on the right track


Originally, the tracksuit was designed to keep athletes warm before and after training or matches. Today, they are spotted on the street as well as on the court or in the stadium. Technical, chic or comfortable, and ideally all three at once (we do our best to make sure of it), only one question remains... Should they be worn as a set or separately? It's your decision to make, and your game to play.

03. The tennis sweater, set for style

A century of elegance

In 1920, the tennis sweater was worn by the most elegant athletes. Modernised and reinvented for 2021, it has transcended its origins to become an everyday look. This style is easy to recognize thanks to its deep V-neck and generous cable knit, and can be worn over a t-shirt, an Oxford shirt, a polo shirt or even a turtleneck. No need to carry a racket.
