I’ve been lucky to get invited to a quick tour of Lacoste‘s showroom in Paris last Monday. The opportunity to have a look at pieces of the Fall 2015 fashion collection, the tennis collection, but also the soon-to-be released LT12 hybrid racquet.
First, a look at the Fall fashion collection. The iconic Lacoste polo shirt invented by René Lacoste in 1933:
French tennis great René Lacoste invented the polo shirt and the tennis-ball machine but also the metal racquet. In 2015, animated by the same quest for innovation, Lacoste launches the LT12, a hybrid racket born from the combination of wood (70%) and graphite (30%). Entirely made by a French craftsman based in Albertville, each racquet takes five hours to produce.
The LT12 racquet, produced as a limited edition of 650 numbered pieces, will be available from April 2015 at the price of 550€.
