Lacoste Fashion Show Collection
Like you're in the front row.
As Lacoste looks back at over eight decades of style, our Fashion Show collection has become synonymous with style. Now it's taking it a step further with the first female creative director in 85 years. A revolutionary step forward, Louise Trotter will head the position of leading Lacoste into what has become the disruptive era of fashion.
In her late ’40s, Louise Trotter has had a successful career in the industry, working as artistic director for a number of high-profile brands and companies including Jigsaw, Tommy Hilfiger and Gap, and more recently, Joseph.
Famous for her creative direction and style, Trotter brings a relaxed-elegance to her work. Taking over from previous designer, Felipe Oliveira Baptista who left the company in May, Trotter debuted her first collection for Lacoste during Paris Fashion Week 2019. “We are very happy to welcome Louise. Her visionary approach on lines and materials, as well as her expertise in creating highly technical pieces will be real assets to strengthen the positioning of our collections,” expressed President, Thierry Guibert.
“I am delighted to join this French brand with a unique heritage.” Louise Trotter has said. “For 85 years, the modernity of the Lacoste style lies in this singular fusion of sport and fashion. I am proud to contribute to the writing of a new chapter in its history.” She is inspired by some of the brand’s historic figures: René Lacoste, his golf champion wife, Simone Thion de la Chaume, and his tennis partner and friend, Suzanne Lenglen.
