Nine of France's most luxurious brands, from Hermes to Boucheron have come together to create a gift to celebrate Lacoste's 80th anniversary. The collection, although unavailable to buy, will go on display from June 10 until June 15th Colette in Paris.
Each present, as Lacoste describes them, embodies them, embodies, the spirit of the heritage tennis brand, as well as the collaborator's signature aesthetic. Hermes has created a crocodile skin suitcase bag, with a special space for a tennis racket, while jewellery label Boucheron has designed two exclusive emerald and diamond crocodile-shaped brooches. Baccarat has made a crystal vase in Lacoste's signature green and gourmet food company, Fauchon has baked high-fashion eclairs that come covered in chococlate shells to recreate the texture of pique polo shirts. If only every birthday came with the same luxurious accoutrements.
