Lacoste has evolved its brand perception, being at first a brand for athletes, going through an elitist brand; synonymous with a status with high purchasing power, to carry out collaborative campaigns with Netflix or Minecraft to attract new consumers.
“Impossible encounters” is the title of the Lacoste commercial to celebrate its 90th anniversary. The campaign has been carried out by the BETC agency and produced by Colors. It wants to represent the values of French elegance, creativity and reinvention of the brand for so long.
