Lacoste has been known for its iconic crocodile logo and the classic cotton polo shirt that tennis legend Rene Lacoste designed in 1927. He created a uniform that would allow better sweat absorption and freedom of movement. Rene named it L.12.12 – L for Lacoste, 1 for its one-of-a-kind fabric, 2 for its short sleeves, and 12 for the number of final version of he design he selected for production. Good to know facts about Lacoste, huh?! 😀
And now, Lacoste’s sporting spirit is reignited in the Lacoste.12.12 watch collection, named after the classic polo shirt.
Lacoste.12.12 is part of the 2014 Holiday collection and comes in six colors: grey, red, blue, white, green and black. Whether you want to be preppy, powerful, understated, or laidback, there’s a color that would suit you.
The simple, light and airy pique fabric makes Lacoste’s polo shirt unique and it is echoed on the 12.12 watch by an attractive petit pique mesh effect around the case sides and along the silicone strap. On the 3 o’clock is the legendary green crocodile, making it truly a classic piece.
So, which one is your favorite? My heart belongs to the green and the grey! 😀
