Lacoste Sunglasses

Styles and Designs Featuring the Infamous Crocodile Logo

The history of Lacoste dates back to 1927 when Rene Lacoste earned the nickname the crocodile after winning a bet while playing tennis. After modeling the crocodile on his clothing for a number of years, Rene decided it was time to start manufacturing and selling the clothing to the public. In 1933, he teamed up with owner and president of one of the largest French knitting manufacturing companies in the world. It was then that he began producing his soon-to-be-popular designer apparel. The intricate design of the crocodile logo has become the biggest selling point of Lacoste designs.

Rene Lacoste was born in 1904 and died in 1996. Living almost an entire century, Lacoste is a true fashion icon of the 20thcentury and has set the tone of styles and trends for the 21stcentury. Currently, the Lacoste product line consists of mens and women's clothing, shoes, accessories and, of course, sunglasses.
