Lacoste Crocs The Game With New Roland Garros Tennis Fashions
Lacoste has just presented their 2017 Roland Garros (RG) Spring/Summer collection for men, women, and kids. Love the “art deco” graphics, which look familiar! The line doses traditional tennis cuts with a dash of French attitude, a vibe communicated through angular retro themed art. Those seeking that designer look on or off court, will be pleased.
Roland Garros, for newbies to tennis (welcome by the way) is another way of referring to the French Open. The Roland Garros stadium was named after the famous French aviator. Lacoste, as you likely know, is a major French brand that sponsors the French Open and trots out a new co branded collection annually.
Here’s a selection from the latest RG 2017 women’s line, which you can currently find at TW/Europe. We’ll let you know when TW/USA starts carrying this line. (Here’s some info on another new Lacoste line, and adidas has an RG line too.)
