Some afternoon Lacoste lovin’ from their Tribute atelier – first introduced in AW11 to celebrate its founder, René Lacoste’s, iconic career moments – the celebrations continue into SS12 with a shiny new footwear range.
The year 1927 marks a particularly sporty era (and René) for the Croc and so, appropriately these offerings are stylistically geared towards more practical wear. A keen and successful tennis player, René scored seven grand slam victories in his career which is marked with seven stars on each shoe’s tongue tab.
Our favourite is the Castera but the others are also worth a gander. Pick up a piece of history (or nearest you’ll get) at lacoste.com.
