Louise Trotter has left the French sportswear brand Lacoste after four years as creative director.

Trotter joined the Lacoste team in 2018, and the following year, she staged her first runway show for the brand, which debuted at Paris Fashion Week. She was in charge of the brand’s yearly runway presentations, as well as menswear and womenswear collections. Trotter provided a new viewpoint to Lacoste, continuously moving her focus to casual apparel.

Trotter’s final creation for the company was shown to a private audience in Paris in 2022, and it will be available to the general public later this year as part of Lacoste’s Spring 2023 collection.

Louise Trotter shared the news on Instagram, writing:

It’s time to say goodbye!

To all those who have supported me on this brilliant journey: the team at Troyes; Lacoste Archive; Lacoste teams; my collaborators; friends, and loyal fans of the house I send my heartfelt thanks.

I leave with the deepest gratitude to my creative team, for without you, there would be no me. The studio became our creative home, and your passion and inspiration allowed us to dream ‘big dreams’. I hope you continue to flourish.

Finally, I feel the most honored to have served the legacy of René Lacoste, whose sporting values I will carry with me. Without style, playing and winning is not enough.

We’ll be interested in seeing who Lacoste appoints as its next creative director. Stay tuned for more information to come soon. Lastly for more fashion news, TJ Atoms Launches Parallel Worldwide Clothing Line.
