Joyeux Anniversaire Lacoste! The brand with the green crocodile logo was founded 80 years ago by French tennis champion René Lacoste. Lacoste is an iconic French brand and so for its birthday, it partnered with other iconic French brands like Hermès or Veuve Clicquot to create a collection of celebratory items. My favourite collaboration though is with Fauchon. I mean, you can’t be a French brand and not celebrate a big birthday with a special pastry right? Right. So Fauchon, which makes the BEST and most beautiful éclairs, came up with four stunning limited edition “crocodile” éclairs branded in Lacoste’s logo and colours. I *love* them!
Sadly, these are only available for a limited time, June 17-21, at Fauchon’s Place de la Madeleine boutique (24-26-30 place de la Madeleine, 8ème). They will also be on display at Colette (213 Rue Saint-Honoré, 1er) from June 10-16. And for those of us who can’t be in Paris during that short window of time, well, there’s always the special 80th collection available online and at Lacoste stores throughout the United States (Washington, DC: 3146 M St NW in Georgetown).
