LACOSTE AUTUMN WINTER 19
When heritage stems from innovation, the only way is forward.
Where the rules of tennis and life are one and the same, dynamic harmonies emerge.
With the impetus of the new as perpetual motivation, Louise Trotter presents her debut collection for Lacoste at the Tennis Club de Paris – acknowledging the life and times of René Lacoste and his dedication to excellence above all things.
As both champion and inventor, René carved out a prodigious legacy far beyond the court. His pioneering spirit and innate personal style form the building blocks of this wardrobe: garments engineered for performance and imbued with desire. Approaching Lacoste as a wellspring of iconography, the Autumn Winter 2019 collection revisits the bygone elegance of sport and its relevance in contemporary society. Movement of the body and movement on the body are at the forefront of research and development into shape and fabrication – unlocking pragmatic solutions for dressing that surpass their apparent simplicity.
