LACOSTE X ROLAND-GARROS
An exceptional athlete who competed in the greatest tournaments around the world, René Lacoste was also a visionary creative who was able to bring style into the court by defying all the conventions of the 1920s. His stroke of genius? The creation of the iconic L.12.12 white petit piqué polo shirt, emblazoned with the famous green crocodile in reference to the nickname given to him by journalists and opponents.
To this day at the most prestigious Grand Slam tournaments, the Lacoste collections are still everywhere to be seen, worn by players and keen spectators alike. Each according to their own codes and own style. And this is even more so the case at the Roland-Garros tournament. One of the most eagerly awaited sporting events of the spring, it has remained a privileged partner of the brand since 1971.
Celebrating 50 years of close collaboration between the prestigious tournament and the crocodile, Lacoste has created a limited-edition Roland-Garros scent to join and enhance the L.12.12 range.
Naturally, the fragrance is inspired by the playful yet decisive back-and-forths that have occurred on the legendary clay court, in an explosive and unique mix of refreshing notes.
