Description
Tailored sportswear might sound like an oxymoron, but it has its own historical roots. Fortunately, Louise Trotter reminded the fashion world of such in her debut Fall 2019 collection. With strong suiting and easy plays on classic knitwear, she modernized the Lacoste look and made it look cool and fresh again! As a result, we're all excited about her tenure!

In her debut collection for the Lacoste, Louise Trotter reminded the fashion crowd of something we seemed to have forgotten in recent years. Contrary to current popular beliefs, tailoring and sportswear aren’t mutually exclusive. Once upon a time, the first half of the 20th-century to be precise, tailoring was a huge component of sportswear. The craft led to the creation of many sportswear classics, some of which the hottest designers of today continue to play with. And with her Fall 2019 collection for the French sportswear luxury behemoth, Trotter became one of them. With her monochrome suiting and convergence of tailoring and knitwear—both staples within the Lacoste identity—she delivered one of the most fascinating offerings of the season. It amazed us to see how well she was able to mix sportswear techniques and classic tailoring with such effortless ease. Despite their overwhelming neutrality, we confess that we enjoyed the first half better, with all those capped-figures in dominant shapes and strong silhouettes marching about with elegant rigor. They brought the Lacoste to look further into the future, arguably even better than the latter half of slightly streetwise plays on the brand’s classic knitwear styles. Right from the start, Trotter looks to be a promising fit for the brand!
