The Lacoste brand was official partner to the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games, and will be back again for the next Summer Olympics in Rio. The label will also outfit all the French athletes at the opening and closing ceremonies, at official events and in the Olympic Village.

A Lacoste podium outfit

Lacoste will feature "French-style elegance and chic", with a range of outfits in red, white and blue, distinctive for their two strong elements: a three-colour crocodile and the combination of the Olympic rings with the French cockerel.

In detail, the collection will include a ceremonial outfit for man and woman with hat, navy blue trench coat, polo, white chinos and sneakers.

For the podium, the official outfit will feature a sweatshirt and polo with zips, track-suit trousers and a selection of sneakers.

The Olympic Village look will consist of a poncho, a hoody, polo, tee-shirt, trousers, flip flops, a luggage line and also scarves, caps and bob hats.

The collection will be available for sale at all Lacoste stores from 28th April.
