Lacoste 90th Anniversary
During a match played in the U.S. in 1923, 19-year-old Rene Lacoste was nicknamed the crocodile for his tenacity on the court. Embroidered from 1927 on a blazer and then on polo shirts, the stylized animal became the first visible logo on a garment. A man of many talents, blessed with a mind of steel, the champion won seven major singles tournaments and was a member of the victorious French team at the Davis Cup in 1927 and 1928. Bringing freedom to the moment to the foreground, his genius also consisted in defying sartorial convention. By shortening the sleeves of the customary shirt, he gave birth to the polo shirt. With this modern, light and universal wardrobe, he won over his fellow players and laid the foundations for the development of the Chemise Lacoste brand.

Monnaie de Paris
Founded in 1864, not only is Monnaie de Paris France's longest standing institution, but it is also the oldest enterprise in the world. Today, the mint strikes circulation coins for France, as well as beautiful gold and silver commemorative coin programs that are each intricately designed works of art.
