The fashion label is desperately seeking to disassociate itself from the mass-killer, who said that “refined people” like him should wear brands like Lacoste.

CLOTHING COMPANY LACOSTE has requested the Norwegian authorities to ban gunman Anders Behring Breivik from wearing its clothes during court appearance.

The 32-year-old has worn the brand to court while facing charges of killing 77 people last July, and also wrote in his online manifesto that “refined people” like him should wear brands like Lacoste.

Breivik wrote that the brand “makes it possible to act as an educated European of the conservative character”.

The Telegraph reports that the fashion label is desperately seeking to disassociate itself from the killer.

The French newspaper Liberation called the situation “a nightmare for one of France’s most distinguished clothing companies.”

Lacoste has not commented on the subject to the media.
