Lacoste SS20 collection review Louise Trotter has presented his second collection in the Roland Garros court

Louise Trotter exactly a year ago was announced as the new Creative Director of Lacoste. Yesterday on the final day of Paris Fashion Week the designer showed her SS20 collection, a tribute to the tradition of the crocodile brand and its roots in the world of tennis. The looks have walked into the symbol of French tennis par excellence: the Roland Garros court, an institution born thanks to the founder of the brand René Lacoste. Louise Trotter then leans on the tradition of the label but proposing a renewed vision, reworking some classics like the Polo in Piquet, invented in 1927 in the years in which the sport began to understand its importance also from an aesthetic and stylistic point of view.

In the second collection designed by Trotter, fashion takes priority over the sport, more than it did in the debut show. Then appear trench coats, jackets and trousers with a soft fit, even the most street items like the suit undergo a rewrite thanks to the use of unusual materials like wool. "The palette has quite a nostalgic feel, but there is nothing retro about the collection,” added Trotter. Retro is the revival of some historical symbols such as the design of the first crocodile, created by Robert George and sewn starting from 1923 on the blazers worn by René Lacoste. The variety of shapes continues also for footwear, in fact, there are leather loafers with graphic patterns but also new sneakers, deconstructed and with a strong design idea, which confirms the great attention for sneakers by the brand, which recently presented his latest Court Slam model.
