Lacoste has been a partner of the French Open at Roland Garros for over 45 years. However the historical link between the crocodile brand and the Roland Garros Stadium actually goes back to 1928. That was the year when the first court was built at the stadium following the victory in the Davis Cup of the Four Musketeers” including René Lacoste. The following year, René Lacoste won his third French Open (1925, 1927, 1929), the first time the tournament was held at Porte d’Auteuil. Today, Roland Garros is one of the most prestigious Grand Slam tournaments and the only one played on clay. Lacoste’s co-branded collection celebrates the 2017 edition of the French Open. Contemporary and graphic, this collection proposes clothing for men, women and children combining performance, comfort and modernity. The French Open and Lacoste have been sharing the same spirit since 1971: a desire to combine performance and elegance, refinement and informality.
