Lacoste has teamed up with quadri-amputee swimmer Théo Curin to create the very first collection bearing the name of a disabled athlete
Lacoste has teamed up with quadri-amputee swimmer Théo Curin, to create the very first collection bearing the name of a disabled athlete, intended for both able-bodied and disabled people. The new Théo Curin line confirms Lacoste’s desire to transcend previous limits in fashion and sport.
In this collection, the athlete wished to integrate the mottos that guide him in life: ‘Follow your dream’, ‘Keep smiling’ and ‘Your difference is a strength’.
Beyond the style elements, special features were brought to the design, such as the buttons being replaced by snaps or the ties allowing the sleeves to be rolled up easily. This attention to detail, inspired by Curin’s daily life and elaborated in collaboration with Louise Trotter, makes it easier for people with disabilities to use these pieces while maintaining Lacoste’s signature style and elegance. This encounter between aesthetics and practicality allows the able-bodied and the disabled to come together around this exceptional collection.
