Lacoste, sharp handbags for spontaneous ladies.
Whereas the emblematic crocodile was initially reserved for male tennis players, ladies are also given pride of place. The ready-to-wear brand, which has become much more popular over the past fifty years, now proposes a diversified line of Lacoste leather goods for women.
Genetically sporty DNA.
René Lacoste marked the history of French tennis in the 1920s, as much by the skill of his game as by his incredibly inventive spirit in terms of technology. On the tennis courts, he was responsible for the tennis ball machine, the steel racket and the anti-vibration pad. In the changing rooms, it is to him that we owe the iconic L.12.12 polo shirt in fine jersey piqué, launched in 1933 bearing the famous label that we all recognise today. But sport was not just the domain of men in the eyes of Lacoste. When René met his future wife, the golf champion Simone Thion de la Chaume, the brand branched out from its historic domain into golf and Lacoste collections for women.
Catherine, the daughter of René and Simone, did a brilliant job of following in her mother's footsteps. She won her first international titles in 1964, and was a muse for Lacoste at the same time. As an ambassador for the brand, she extolled the advent of sporty femininity, enhanced with a sophisticated touch of elegance. This homage to women continued over time and other talented ball players donned Lacoste polo shirts and accessories, like Tatiana Golovin, Elena Vesnina, Patricia Lebouc and Gwladys Nocera. In 2017, a collaboration with the designer Yazbukey, fun, audacious and far from stereotypical, endowed Lacoste pieces with greater depth of character.
A spectrum of colours for your wardrobe.
Other than the limited editions that punctuate the brand's range of leather goods, Lacoste handbags come in versions mainly revolving around two signature collections. There is the legendary L.12.12 line and the Chantaco series, which gets its name from the eponymous golf course, which is where the Lacoste family called home. A full palette of colours and shapes then added to the richness of the designs. The choices are infinite: with handles for carrying or with shoulder straps in terms of look, closing with a flap or a zip in terms of comfort, in leather or in canvas in terms of style, either in light tones or vibrant colours in terms of mood, timeless classics are definitely the order of the day. That includes spacious bucket bags and totes for sporty types, baguette bags and clutches for city dwellers, barrel bags for the less conventional and festive totes for more Bohemian fashionistas.
With casual, elegant and practical as bywords, the label Lacoste has proved that it knows how to bring out the eclectic and spontaneous character of modern women. All the time. On the leather goods podium of the French label, we will make a point of calling:
