The Chantaco Collection, presented by Lacoste et 2016 TFWA-WE in Cannes, is expanded with a range of travel and leisure bags for sports and stylish men.
Lacoste, the French iconic brand, is inspired by René Lacoste‘s values, a tennis legend whose creations have changed the face of sport and revolutionized the fashion industry. In 1927, René Lacoste met his future wife Simone Thion de la Chaume, 13 times France golf champion. In 1928, the Chantaco golf course, near Saint-Jean-De-Luz, was the scene of their marriage and became their life playground. Famous for its lush greenery and architectural beauty, the Chantaco golf regularly hosted many personalities such as the Prince of Wales, Clark Gable and Charlie Chaplin. This sporting world of refinement and elegance gave birth to a collection of iconic bags, the Chantaco Collection.
Bags with timeless look
The Chantaco Collection, is expanded with a new line of men’s bags for the 2017 Spring Summer season presented by Lacoste at TFWA-WE 2016. The collection is in the same timeless design as Lacoste’s sporting heritage. This gorgeous collection of leather bags with crocodile relief, in navy blue, black and blue peacock colors, will seduce the men with its modern and elegant lines. It is intended for men of character who have left the courts, clay and tracks to make the city their playing field.
At work, while traveling, or just for leisure, they can wear the bags with timeless look that perfectly suits their daily lives. The Collection Chantaco bears the footprint of Lacoste’s family life and history with the touch of modernity and contemporary spirit of the line which is enriched with the seasons.
Lacoste, Life is a beautiful sport!
The iconic French brand was founded in 1933 by famous tennis player Rene Lacoste. Since then, it delights the lovers of chic sportswear, and is unmistakable with its little green crocodile embroidered on each Lacoste product.
The brand has gone through the decades with class, thanks to products with clean and timeless lines. This elegant simplicity enabled the logo to impose itself permanently in women and menswear.
The Lacoste polo is the iconic brand product. Its petit piqué jersey (light and airy fabric) was a revolution at the time and is still today appreciated for its comfort and high quality.
Since the 80s, Lacoste is offering a full range of clothing, leather goods, perfumes, scarves, shoes, sunglasses, watches, underwear and linen. Over the years, Lacoste has gained new markets by offering the same products in each country but diversifying its global offer.
Present in 114 countries, Lacoste, synonymous with casual elegance, employs 10 000 people worldwide and achieved in 2015 a turnover of 1.95 billion euros.
At TFWA WE-2016 in Cannes, Lacoste organized a nice sporting and elegance event on the rooftop of the Radisson Blu hotel, where guests could hit a few golf balls at the driving range in front of one of the most beautiful panoramas in the French Riviera.
