Lacoste Celebrates

Lacoste celebrates 80 years in fashion in a very different way

For Lacoste’s 80th anniversary the brand invited nine French houses to join them, by designing an exclusive gift especially for the occasion: Hermes, Baccarat, Boucheron, Cristofle, Bernardaud, Goyard, Veuve Cliquot, Fauchon and S.T Dupont are the houses involved in the project.

With the crocodile in mind, each of the them took time to create a unique gift for Lacoste.

Hermes designed a tennis bag with luxurious crocodile skin.

Baccarat, famous for their unique crystal creations, chose to create a -30s inspired- vase in the characteristic shade of green.

Boucheron created two amazing brooches in crocodile shape, one made of diamonds and the other made of emeralds.

Cristofle designed a putter made of solid sterling silver. One of the most exclusive putters ever made for sure.

Bernardaud decided to highlight the history of golf for Lacoste, by editing a variety of 27 colored golf tees.

Goyard designed the best athletic travel bag made of white leather with green details and the monogram in the center.

Veuve Cliquot

Fauchon, famous for their perfect culinary creations, decided to decorate the delicious delight in colours of white and green, mixed with other colours of Lacoste polo shirts, in a variety of flavors, ranging from Green Tea to Almond, Vanilla, Lemon, or Strawberry.

Last but not least, S.T Dupont designed a secret white leather box that includes a crocodile embossed notebook, two distinctive pens, a lighter and two travel sized candles.

All the objects may not be available to buy but they are on display at Colette Store for few days.
