“I am delighted to share an overview of my first artistic vision and my interpretation of the codes of this iconic House which combines, with such accuracy and singularity, heritage and modernity. With these silhouettes, I wanted to revisit the brand's sporting influences through a 'fashion' treatment, while innovating with a more assertive and sensual femininity. » added Pelagia Kolotouros, Creative Director of Lacoste.
