It was in Jupiter, Florida, where she lives, that British Vogue photographed Venus Williams, the first woman to represent this fashion sport vision.
“I have always been a fan of Lacoste, whose innovative style, beyond the boundaries of sport, inspires me constantly. Louise Trotter is a visionary and the work she does as Artistic Director of the House is innovative and constantly evolving. I am extremely happy to be able to work alongside him and represent this new fashion sport silhouette. » –Venus Williams
