Lacoste serves up Roland Garros collection

With the French Open now under way, Lacoste has unveiled its new Roland Garros collection that draws on the brand’s heritage to revisit tennis-inspired style. 

Iconic design and technical innovation meet in the new collection, according to the French fashion house, adding that the range is a perfect match for any playing field. 

The new range sports slogans like ‘Without style, playing and winning are not enough’ and ‘Game, set and match’ in addition to tennis emblems and the logo of Roland Garros, which is held in Paris, France, and is one of tennis’ four Grand Slam tournaments.

Lacoste says that with its clean lines and signature motifs, the Roland Garros collection embodies a new expression of sporting elegance – with contemporary, graphic, technical and functional pieces “dedicated to pleasure and performance”. 

Champion on the tennis court and three-time Roland Garros winner, René Lacoste invented the iconic polo in 1933. Its unique cotton petit piqué marked a revolution in the world of sports clothing. His steel tennis racket invention would appear in 1963, followed by the first sports bomber jacket by the brand, in 1966. 

Today, the Roland Garros collection pays tribute to the innovative legacy of Lacoste, through its functional, sport-inspired wardrobe, the house says.
