The brand Lacoste was started in 1933 by the French ex-tennis player, René Lacoste. The original aim of the brand was to supply tennis clothes that carried all the style and elegance that René had displayed as a player. However, Lacoste have gone on to produce an extensive range of fashion products and apparel, becoming part of a lifestyle brand that is synonymous with style and elegance.
The Lacoste brand is instantly recognisable by the crocodile logo, a symbol that carried over from René Lacoste's tennis playing days. Before an important Davis Cup match, René made a bet with his team captain that he would win, with the stake put forward a crocodile skin suitcase. René duly won the match, and when the American press caught wind of the story they dubbed him 'Le Crocodile'.
