lacoste’s homage to davis cup history

Lacoste pays tribute to its founder Rene Lacoste with the Retro 27 line, a wink to France’s epic 1927 title win at the International Lawn Tennis Challenge aka Davis Cup. Lacoste was on the team that helped take down then-giant USA, snapping the six-year American title streak and giving France their first of nine Davis Cups (three of them back-to-back from ’27-’29). In the 2010 draw, France is now through to the semis (on their home court against Argentina) — this after routing a Spanish team sin Nadal (who was busy crying about the World Cup).
