Lacoste, authenticity since 1933
The heritage of Lacoste is that of René Lacoste, legendary champion of French tennis who created the polo, the famous shirt in petit piqué that revolutionised the world of sport and fashion. He founded the brand that today is synonymous with elegance and also with savoir-faire, innovation and authenticity.
Protect Lacoste and its ecosystem
Since it was founded, Lacoste has been actively committed to protecting its brand. This is a tireless engagement with customers, employees, partners and suppliers. The commitment is laid out in the Code of Conduct and in Lacoste’s Ethics Charter, which the company’s suppliers agree to and sign to that effect.
Watch out for fake products
As a premium brand known to all, Lacoste is often the target of counterfeiting. To fight against this scourge, a dedicated Lacoste team works every day to stop the production and sale of fake Lacoste products. This team works hands in hand with public authorities across the world.
Despite being illegal, the sale of fake Lacoste products can take place anywhere: on the street, in shops or online. To spot them, be attentive to terms such as "cheap Lacoste", "Lacoste replica", "fake Lacoste", “Lacoste copy”, “Lacoste dupe”, "real Lacoste". Beware, counterfeiters are present on social networks, market places and other online platforms.
