As the sacred month of Ramadan is here, we are reminded of its significance as a time of reflection, spiritual renewal, and community bonding. It is a period cherished by millions around the world for its emphasis on compassion, empathy, and generosity. In this spirit, Lacoste is proud to announce its Ramadan Campaign 2024, dedicated to celebrating the values of inclusivity, diversity, and unity that define this holy month.

At the heart of this story are four talents from the region: Mohammed Habtoor, a prominent figure in Dubai; Abdulla Al Kaabi, a film director based in Dubai; Ibrahim Al Baker, a visual artist and Creative Director from Qatar; and Farah Assaad, a Creative Director from Kuwait. These artists weave the campaign’s theme into a tapestry of style and elegance, celebrating the harmonious coming together of different cultures and languages. In every frame, the video shares a story of coming together, embracing differences, and capturing the enduring beauty when art, fashion, and the essence of Ramadan intersect.

The campaign commemorates the “Do you Speak Lacoste” collection, which is being pre-launched exclusively in the Middle East during Ramadan 2024. It aims to celebrate culture, foster connections, and unite people. The collection draws inspiration from Lacoste’s rich heritage, featuring motifs such as the iconic crocodile and paying homage to René Lacoste.

This narrative is not just a representation of Ramadan’s’ spirit but also a reflection of Lacoste’s ethos – “Do You Speak Lacoste?” is not a question answered merely with words. It’s about embodying elegance, not just in appearance but in essence. Expressing style in every choice, and recognizing the unique beauty in others. These are the individuals who come together, blending their hues to create.  The collection is also inspired by4 patents by Rene Lacoste: Polo collar, tennis racket, tennis ball machine, and golf club.

The four talents, from different parts of the Middle East, join in the campaign together and emphasize the beauty of varied backgrounds and seamless integration to connect during this special time of the year. The Lacoste Ramadan Campaign has been officially launched across the Middle East, and the Spring Summer 2024 collection is now available in Lacoste stores  and online throughout the region.
