Lacoste recently announced that Pelagia Kolotouros will be taking over as its new Creative Design Director , replacing outgoing Creative Director Louise Trotter who left after nearly four years in the role . Kolotouros is an experienced fashion designer and has previously worked with brands such as Balmain, Balenciaga, and Chloé. She will be responsible for overseeing the creative studio and creating collections that reflect Lacoste’s signature style. She will also be working closely with the design team to ensure that each collection is fresh and modern, while still staying true to the brand’s core aesthetic.
Lacoste’s former creative director Louise Trotter left her position recently after a four-year tenure. She is leaving to pursue other opportunities. It is speculated that her departure is due to the brand’s shift to a ‘collaborative studio model’ and the fact that Lacoste has not staged a runway show since 2021
