Rene Lacoste, nicknamed “the Alligator,” liked to recount the story of how he acquired his nickname and emblem in 1927. The story stemmed from his love of tennis: “I was nicknamed ‘the Alligator’ by the American press after I made a bet with the captain of the French Davis Cup team concerning a suitcase made from alligator skin. He promised to buy it for me if I won a very important match for our team. The public must have been fond of this nickname, which conveyed the tenacity I displayed on the tennis courts, never letting go of my prey!”
In 1933, Lacoste and André Gillier, the owner and president of the largest French knitwear manufacturing firm at the time, set up a company to manufacture shirts with Lacoste’s alligator emblem on them. Lacoste had designed this for his own use on the tennis court, and this marked one of the first times that a brand appeared on an article of clothing. The iconic Lacoste polo shirt revolutionized men’s sportswear and replaced the traditional long-sleeved, starched dress shirts.
In the 1980s, the popularity of Lacoste sportswear skyrocketed, and the company decided to venture into other product lines, including Lacoste fragrances. In 1984, the first Lacoste cologne for men was introduced, simply titled Lacoste and bearing the classic alligator logo. Many more successful Lacoste fragrances would follow, but it wasn’t until 1999 that the company would introduce Lacoste perfume for her.
