French tennis star René Lacoste began manufacturing the white Polo shirt he wore in matches in 1933, embed with the iconic reptile in honor of his nickname Le Crocodile. Today, those polo shirts are not only still widely worn, but are the iconic product of the Lacoste brand, which is celebrating its 80th anniversary this year.
To mark the celebration, Lacoste tasked British designer Peter Saville, known for designing iconic album covers for bands such as Joy Division and New Order, to create an anniversary logo.
The LACOSTE L!VE Spring/Summer 2013 collection takes you on a trip around the world. With its authentic cuts and colors coming from Japan, Mali or the Californian beaches, this collection revisits the Hawaiian shirt, reinvents the 90s’ washed-out jeans and sublimates traditional African patterns.

After New York and Montreal, where LACOSTE L!VE brought several talents to light, the brand now takes us to Tokyo to discover two artists embodying its values. Sonoya Mizuno, a dancer and Yusuke Hanaï, an illustrator and surfer, allow us to discover Japan and their worlds.
It’s Lacoste’s 80th anniversary this year, and the booklet of images that awaited guests at today’s show detailed a timeline of innovative creativity. Remarkable when you reflect how much of it has been based on one fabric, cotton piqué. Felipe Oliveira Baptista, Lacoste’s current standard-bearer, used the new collection to underscore piqué’s possibilities. Double-faced or bonded, it was no longer the simple stuff of the classic polo shirt.
And no longer was it the preserve of René Lacoste’s Riviera tennis courts. Baptista imagined piqué gone polar, with an iceberg print on a caban, or an ice floe pattern on a sweat suit, or a coat of latex veiling bright colors, like a sheath of ice. For men, he kept the silhouette linear and precise, the palette head-to-toe monochrome, whether it was palest celadon or intense orange. For women, the silhouette was equally defined: rounded tops; pencil skirts; narrow, cropped pants; and a handful of leather dresses with diagonal zips that sinuously defined the torso.
The image summoned up by the label Lacoste is iconic enough to border on the banal, so there was a subtle iconoclasm in Baptista’s anniversary collection, never more so than in a cobalt sheath with pockets slashed like a canvas by Italian artist Lucio Fontana.
