Lacoste | Terrycloth Overnight Bag | View!
Today the creative director of Lacoste is Christophe Lemaire. The line was founded in 1933 by world famous tennis player Jean Rene Lacoste (nicked “le Crocodile”).
The famous logo was born through a bet. French tennis champion Rene Lacoste agreed to a gamble with his Captain of the French Davis Cup Team. If he were to have won (a very important) match he would have received an alligator suitcase. He lost. The local papers printed that he “fought like an alligator” and was nicknamed “the Alligator” by the American press. Later on that year Robert George sketched up the famous ‘crocodile’ for friend Rene Lactose who then had the image embroidered on a blazer which he commonly wore on the courts. Tada, the legacy of Lacoste was born.
About the Bag: If it was spring summer 2007 then I wouldn’t even hesitate, this bag would be mine. This Lacoste navy blue and white pinstriped small-weave terrycloth bag is brand new with tags still attached and adorned with the super sized alligator logo. Interior in cotton with alligator illustration repeated. Zipper pocket and hanging zipper clutch. Snap top. Measures about 19 x 14 x 6. The size is big enough for a weekend getaway, everyday work tote or even as a chic diaper bag.
