PARIS – LACOSTE presents the brand film “Timeless” at the heart of the new campaign. This epic cinematic fresco is set in the 1930s where a man experiences love at first sight. He sets off on the trail of a mysterious woman, jumping on the train she is riding. But as soon as he reaches the first car, he finds himself in the 1940s. Determined to find her, the hero begins a frantic quest that takes him through carriages and eras, until he ultimately arrives in the present. Over time, styles change but the polo retains its timeless elegance.

The couple, played by Damien Chapelle and Dorcas Coppin, are seen in spectacular settings: a 1930s Parisian train station brought to life by 250 extras, authentic trains from each decade and outstanding style fashioned by Madeline Fontaine, nominated for an Oscar for Jackie. It is magnified by a cinematic soundtrack by Max Richter that gives the viewer goose bumps as of the first second.

After directing The Big Leap, the first brand video in LACOSTE communication history, the director Seb Edwards once again shows his ability to transcend universal emotions, directing an electric attraction that makes the viewer feel alive. The film captures this rare, yet vital, emotion with all the more grandeur and romance as this “chase” takes place over eight decades, reminding us that life itself is a beautiful sport.

Broadcast around the world, the campaign will be shown on TV, online, and outdoor. The campaign is accompanied by digital ads and bumpers.
