Hermes, Boucheron, Baccarat and other French designers raise an ode to Lacoste’s 80th anniversary


It’s been 80 long years since Lacoste. Celebrations are at their peak, and joining in the birthday bash are nine French designer labels paying tribute to the iconic sports brand. Each brand, including Hermes, Boucheron, Govard, and Fauchon are ready with their respective items to the honor Lacoste. Want to know what’s in store?

Goyard Travel Bag

A perfect tribute to Lacoste, Goyard, Paris’ oldest luggage manufacturer, presents a green and grey overnight bag. Exuding a chic look and feel, the bag bears Goyard’s trademark chevron motif, along with the Lacoste branding.

Fauchon Eclairs

Fauchon, the Parisian designer food house, has, in honor of Lacoste’s 80th birthday, recreated the classic chocolate eclaire. The delicacy includes exciting flavors such as green tea, vanilla, lemon, and strawberry, which perfectly match its attire in vibrant Lacoste signature colors of green, magenta, and white. Last but not least, the Lacoste logo crafted from marshmallow rests on the face of each eclaire, adding the finishing touch.

Boucheron Brooches

Next in line are emerald and diamond-encrusted brooches from Paris’ Boucheron – the fine jewelry maker. Dazzling in brilliantly cut emeralds and diamonds, the brooches, in the crocodile motif, are evident luxury additions to Boucheron’s jeweled collection of animal pieces.

Baccarat Crystal Vase

Baccarat, the crystal manufacturer, is also among the nine opulent designers paying homage to Lacoste. And in honor of Lacoste’s 80th, Baccarat presents the sports brand with a crystal vase, which draws inspiration from the tennis trophies won by Rene Lacoste during his career as a player. The crystal connoisseur has beautifully incorporated emerald green designing on the vase, an apt tribute to the sports brand.

Bernardaud Tees

Porcelain manufacturer, Bernardaud also joins the band wagon to tip its hat in homage to Lacoste, offering a range of 27 tees. The collection has been prepared, particularly targeting Rene Lacoste’s wife, legendary golfer, and fan of Bernardaud Simone Thion de la Chaume. The tees are available in colors that correspond to Lacoste’s iconic polo shirts.

Cristofle Golf Clubs

What could have been a more apt gift than a golf club to a family that is passionate about the sport? Christofle has nailed it, designing a professional golf club for Lacoste in silver with a white leather handle.

s-t-duont-set
S.T. Dupont Set

On the other hand, Dupont, the specialist in chic personal items, has a very thoughtful gift in mind, presenting Lacoste with a vanity case that could become in handy to a golfer or tennis player pre or post-a match. The kit includes a ‘Line 2’ lighter, two candles, a notebook, and two pens from the Classique and Elysées ranges.

hermes-tennis-bag
Hermès Tennis Bag

Last but not least is Hermes’s iconic fashion label, gifting Lacoste a tennis bag woven of khaki crocodile skin. The bag portrays a very chic and up-class design that has been kept simple and to the point. I’m sure Lacoste is going to love this presentation.

All these merchandises would be available at Colette, 213 Rue Saint-Honoré, 75001 Paris, France, from June 10 to 16.
