Lacoste, the luxury French sportswear brand turns 80 this year and celebrates with a special anniversary collection. 

Lacoste has been one of sports’ leading labels since 1933, when French tennis champion René Lacoste switched up traditional tennis gear by replacing a woven, long-sleeved shirt with a lighter and more comfortable short-sleeved style in airy piqué fabric – known today as the classic Lacoste polo shirt (Dhs450 at Lacoste in The Dubai Mall).


Then and Now

Lacoste‘s sportswear classics, embroidered with their signature crocodile logo, have long been a staple in our closets. To mark the big birthday, Lacoste has created an exclusive collection filled with stylish classics for men, women and children.

Top of our list? This fabulous leather polo dress.
