Lacoste is celebrating its 90th anniversary and has chosen the occasion to present three new lines of tracksuits that reflect the brand’s sporting elegance.
The Paris tracksuit
The Lacoste tracksuit came about on the tennis courts of Roland Garros. Worn by the players before and after matches, it was synonymous with performance. Season after season, it made its way into our wardrobes and today is worn as an everyday uniform. Versatile and always on the move, it is, more than ever, an icon that transcends cultures and generations and an emblem that has brought together communities worldwide over the years.
To celebrate the house’s landmark 90th anniversary, it is releasing three unique tracksuits with two styles for men’s and women’s wear.
The ‘tennis chic’ look that appeared in the 1970s gets an injection of timeless elegance for 2023 through codes inherited from the past, such as piping details, well-fitted cuts and, of course, the brand’s famous white tone. Straight pants and zipped jackets make up this mixed wardrobe to be fashioned as a modern suit.
Influenced by the flamboyance of Roland Garros in the 80s, and tennis champion Guy Forget, this style is elaborated in ultra-light, loose-fitting taffeta. In addition to on-court models for men, off-court versions for men and women are also available.
Thick cotton, an impeccable fit, and seamless detailing: firmly rooted in its time, this tracksuit comes in a range of natural colours. Sweatshirts and pants to match and mismatch create a silhouette to wear with more structured pieces for a city look.
