* spring / summer 2020
The Lacoste Spring Summer 2020 runway show marks a return to Roland Garros, the spiritual home of French tennis and the terrain of René Lacoste. Designed by creative director Louise Trotter, the collection is unveiled around the Serres d’Auteuil greenhouses as Julien Benneteau, captain of the French Federation Cup team, and ‘Petit Croco’ Tiago Pirès practice on the Simonne Mathieu court nearby.
>>union of sports, heritage & style<<
At home in this historic setting, Lacoste celebrates a soulful union of sports, heritage and style. Musing on the unexpected icons of Lacoste history, Trotter continues to challenge tradition with contemporary verve.
For Spring Summer 2020, Lacoste has collaborated with two British female designers. Collaged sneakers are handmade by Helen Kirkum, upcycled from last season’s styles into new hybrids. The crocodile has been cast as Alighieri for Lacoste brass pendants and bracelets by jeweller Rosh Mahtani, transforming the house symbol as a totemic keepsake.
