LACOSTE was founded in 1933 after the meeting of legendary tennis player René Lacoste and André Gillier. Inspired by Lacoste’s nickname, Alligator, and the shirt style worn by polo players in London, Lacoste and Gillier conceived of a polo shirt bearing the now iconic Crocodile logo. Over the course of the following years, LACOSTE expanded their offerings and became synonymous with an elegance in sportswear. With this aspirational quality, LACOSTE was adopted by and became a status symbol amongst youth cultures worldwide.Supreme has worked with LACOSTE on a new collection for Spring 2017.
