Tennis Identity

T.I. @ The Open: Lacoste C’est Magnifique

Renee Lacoste original blazer

Sometimes the word “classic” is overused. Not this time. We’re talking René Lacoste. This original Lacoste “Crocodile” blazer is part of a wonderful exhibit called “Tennis Evolves: Racquets and Fashion” being sponsored by the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum at the US Open. Find it inside the American Express Fan Experience in the Chase Center.

The exhibit begins with an 1884 floor length tennis dress and runs through to the “see through” lingerie look Venus Williams wore in 2010.  A touch table adds interactivity to the exhibit.

We’ve come a loooooong way baby.
