Where Berlin - - SHOPPING -

Abid­ing by the motto “life is a beau­ti­ful sport,” life­style brand La­coste was born out of the in­ven­tive­ness of ten­nis cham­pion René La­coste. More than 80 years ago, he cre­ated the iconic polo shirt for him­self and fel­low ten­nis friends so they could be both re­laxed and el­e­gant on and off the court. Nick­named “the crocodile” by fans due to his sport­ing prow­ess, he later had the green an­i­mal em­broi­dered on his fa­mous shirt, which be­came the sig­na­ture preppy wardrobe item of the 1980s. To­day, the brand has branched out into golf­ing wear, sail­ing col­lec­tions, and other sportsin­spired cloth­ing and ac­ces­sories such as watches, eye­wear, and per­fume – all decked out in block colors, catchy stripes, and the net-like pat­tern of ten­nis rack­ets.
