Lacoste Challenge: Fresh Scent For Summer

Kiss & Makeup‘s Zara writes…

Lacoste are launching a new scent which challenges men to be, uh, Challenge(d). The idea is that the scent will capture the essence of today’s young metrosexual, and be light enough to wear daily. Considering the tagline is ‘Never resist the call of the game’. it seems pretty relevant for Wimbledon, and I can imagine Henman spritzing on a little in between getting trounced trying his hardest.

The scent combines notes of tangerine and lemon mixed with aromatic lavender- an unusual combination for a male scent. They have added ginger to give it an extra a kick though, so hopefully you’ll be feeling zesty rather than getting flashbacks to your gran’s knicker drawer.

It costs from £24 for 50ml, and will be available this summer.

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

rex_796866h.jpgFashionista, the site that is always in-the-know, has reported upon a WWD article that reveals tennis-supremo Rafael Nadal as the chosen face of French fashion-house Lanvin’s new fragrance for men, L’Homme Sport.

Nadal is the first tennis face to front the campaign of a French fashion house and the news of his appointment is causing quite the stir. Nadal recently became the Number 1 Tennis Player in the World, taking over from Roger Federer who is, himself, a bit of a fashion darling beloved by editors and designers from Anna Wintour to Oscar De La Renta.

What do you think of Roger Federer’s Wimbledon look?

By admin on June 25th, 2008

roger federer wimbledon tennis cardigan.jpgRoger Federer turned heads on court at Wimbledon sporting a refined retro outfit of gold-trimmed cardigan, polo shirt and tailored shorts. It’s a departure from the on court trend of wearing hi-tech sportswear and harks back to a more genteel era of tennis.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m no sartorial luddite, but Federer’s preppy chic outfit is a cut above your average sweat soaked poly-mesh racer back all-in-onsie. Whether it will make any difference to his game remains to be seen, as he faces Robin Soderling at lunchtime. Vote in our poll and let us know what you think of the Swiss tennis star.

René summer pumps from Lacoste

I’m in love with these Lacoste ‘René’ pumps from Office (£49.99), I’ve been saying ‘Oh René’ over and over again in my head in the style of Allo’ Allo’. You can’t beat them for retro simplicity, they will look great with some grey slacks and a polo shirt for a relaxed summer look. Taking your style cues from René Lacoste himself, France’s tennis champion from the ’20s and ’30s is a much better idea than using say Wayne Rooney or Freddie Flintoff for your sartorial inspiration.
