GRR secured the business following a three-way pitch. The deal sees Lacoste join the agency’s growing portfolio of clients which includes Nike, Levis, Omega, Phones 4U, Nokia and Umbro.

GRR is now working on a series of Point of Purchase installations, window displays and promotional items, which will appear in Lacoste stores and concessions throughout Europe by the end of the year.

The Lacoste legend was born in 1927, when tennis star René Lacoste revolutionised mens’ fashion replacing the classical woven fabric, long-sleeved and starched shirts on the courts with what has now become the classic Lacoste polo shirt.
