The Lacoste Polo shirt in a watch

by - December 15, 2014

Whenever I go out of the house, I never fail to see someone with either a Lacoste bag or the ever iconic Lacoste polo shirt. I'm sure some of you encounter the same thing everyday and how can you not? Lacoste has been around for ages and with their minimalist look and classic style, you surely would fall in love with the brand. They always find ways to capture peoples hearts. Especially now with their Lacoste Poloshirt in a watch collection: Lacoste.12.12.

The new Lacoste.12.12 watch looks exactly like the classic polo shirt. :)

As iconic and recognizable as the crocodile logo is the classic cotton petit pique poloshirt that tennis legend Rene Lacoste designed in 1927. Nicknamed the crocodile for his tenacity on the court, the athlete created a uniform that would allow for better sweat absorption and freedom of movement. He named it L.12.12. - L for Lacoste, 1 for its one-of-a-kind fabric, 2 for its short sleeves, and 12 for the number of the final version of the L.12.12 has remained a beloved wardrobe staple for the elegantly athletic.

"Much like the classic polo shirt it is named after, the Lacoste.12.12 watch embodies the brand's rich history of designing crisp, elegant pieces, and we are really excited to be bringing its 2014 Holiday collection to Manila." -Julian Addison, MGI President for Asisa Pacific

Trying to be Maria Sharapova with Beb Ana! We're also sporting the Lacoste.12.12 watch!

Six confident colors make up the Lacoste.12.12 watch design palette: grey, red, blue, white, green and black. There is a timepiece for whatever the mood calls for. Take the classic preppy tack, go for masculine and powerful, understated and simple or relaxed and laidback. Whatever you choose, the result is timeless, simple, wearable elegance for work and play.

Simplicity, refinement and comfort are the hallmarks of Lacoste's wearable icons. The light, airy pique fabric that serves as the polo shirt's unique signature is faithfully echoed on the watch by an attractive petit pique mesh effect running around the case sides and along the soft-touch silicone strap. Ready to take a bite out of 3 o'clock is the legendary green crocodile that adorns each dial. Indeed, wearing a Lacoste.12.12 watch is wearing a true classic on your sleeve.

Which color do you fancy? :)

After the program, we all had an intense game of Wii Tennis and boy! Everyone was competitive! The price at stake was Lacoste watches, so who wouldn't be, right?? But they also handed out consolation prizes to the ones who didn't make it to the finals. :)

And before the event ended, we were all lead to a Christmas tree that had gift boxes hanging on them and to our surprise, we were all given our very own Lacoste.12.12 watch!

I wished for a certain color and can you guess if I got that color? :) 

Thank you so much, Rochelle Romero for inviting me and congrats on the successful event!
