The Family: 12.12
The Lacoste 12.12 family is directly inspired by the iconic and revolutionary polo shirt that has been a mainstay of the company’s collection ever since its introduction by René Lacoste in 1933. The distinctive feel of the “petit piqué” on the silicone strap is expertly complimented by clean styling and a bold range of colours, resulting in a range of watches that perfectly distil the Lacoste design ethos into timepiece form.
The Brand: Lacoste
Lacoste was founded in 1933 by French tennis player René Lacoste. Famed for his tenacious style of play, Lacoste was nicknamed “the crocodile,” hence his decision to make the now legendary red-mouthed reptile his company’s logo. Having successfully pioneered the concept of functional yet stylish sportswear throughout the twentieth-century, Lacoste introduced its first timepiece in 1993. Since then, the company’s offerings have gone from strength to strength, with the current collection being the perfect distillation of the Lacoste design ethos into timepiece form.
