"As a kid, I knew I would do something creative. But it wasn't until I was 18, taking a course on art and design in London, that I realized fashion touched every discipline I liked: photography, sculpture, architecture, and graphics."
"René Lacoste was a great visionary. I want to project things that he did into the future. People associate the label with summer, but there is also a strong ski heritage. In 1966, Lacoste outfitted France's national ski team. That was the starting point for fall."
"For my first Lacoste collection [spring 2012], the purpose was to establish a complete wardrobe. We remixed polos and rugby shirts with a dose of understated Parisian chic and sporty body-consciousness."
