Lacoste L.12.12 brings competitive spirit and killer style to tennis court

Lacoste Watch Philippines brings the world of style and sport together at the L.12.12 watch collection launch. Influencers and media guests did not disappoint as well, bringing their A-game and chic sportswear to Kerry Sports Manila.

De Los Reyes and Villamor were hailed winners of the Team A match after taking down Rivera and Lopez in three sets. Meanwhile, Bustos and Perez won the Team B match and went on to play against Team A winners. The doubles game ended on a high note as Team A’s De Los Reyes and Villamor shocked the audience by closing the match with a sweep and were hailed champions of the tournament.

These tennis matches were happening side by side beginners taking crash courses with two tennis coaches on the other court. Guests were then treated to a sumptuous dinner at Shangri-La The Fort (Bonifacio Hall) after the competition and clinic.

Elegantly athletic: The L.12.12 collection is not just a fashion statement, but a functional timepiece as well.

Reigniting the sporty spirit of L.12.12 collection

The competitive atmosphere at a top-end sports venue reignited a bond over Lacoste’s L.12.12 collection. The Lacoste watch collection was showcased with the iconic crocodile logo, familiar to most as stitched on the brand’s classic cotton polo shirt.

The launch was hosted by Anthony Suntay and Lucerne Group’s marketing head for fashion and lifestyle brands Judith Staples. Catherine Porlaje, Brand Manager of Lacoste Watch Philippines, unveiled the complete collection along with the brand’s other new collections in the watch display towers.

Inspired by an icon for the icons: All-new L.12.12 collection for the elegantly athletic you!

Sporty and stylish, you’ll never go out of style wearing any of the watches in the L.12.12 collection!

The L.12.12 is Lacoste’s signature timepiece, bringing Rene Lacoste’s design and details of the iconic polo shirt to the wrist. The collection was named with L to stand for Lacoste, 1 for its one-of-a-kind, top-grade fabric, 2 for its short sleeves, and finally the number 12 for the final version selected for production. The collection remains a beloved timepiece for the unabashed, elegantly athletic individuals.

The three-hand design is shaped by a sleek, modern aesthetic infused with the inimitable sporty appeal that defines Lacoste watches. The model comes in six bold colors (fresh white, classic black, navy, pink, red, and the timeless Lacoste green) to complement your style preference or mood. It’s also offered in two sizes with a lightweight nylon-infused resin case, featuring a petit piqué embossing that fades toward the edges of the silicone strap and the center of the striking, curved dial. A green crocodile at 3 o’clock references the position of the Lacoste logo on its polo shirts. A matt-finish bezel contrasts the shiny, rounded case — making it a classic piece with a contemporary design.
