Inspiration, like good sportsmanship, runs in families. At least it did for the Lacoste clan.
Catherine Lacoste, daughter of tennis player-turned-sportswear great René, was herself an accomplished athlete, winning the U.S. Women’s Open in 1967 at the age of 22. She’s also the muse behind Lacoste’s latest leather goods venture: the Cathy bag. Cathy pays homage to its namesake’s golf bag through chic gold piping and a roomy shape (not roomy enough to hold clubs, however). The result is a winning combination.
