Lacoste has teamed up with quadri-amputee swimmer Théo Curin to create the very first collection bearing the name of a handisport athlete.

In this collaboration, Creative Director Louise Trotter and her team worked with Curin across every aspect, including the logo and the creation of each piece, inspired by Curin's endeavours.

Designed for both people with and without disabilities, the collection consists of a polo shirt, a sleeveless parka, a T-shirt, a sweatshirt and a cap, with special design features such as buttons being replaced by snaps and ties allowing the sleeves to be rolled up easily.

Louise Trotter, Creative Director of Lacoste said: "The new Théo Curin line confirms Lacoste’s desire to transcend previous limits in fashion and sport. It was a joy and an honour to work with Théo on this unique project – he is an inspiration to us all while his enthusiasm and determination pushed us to new levels of creativity."

Curin added: "The fact that a brand like Lacoste asked me to set up a collaboration like this shows that things are still evolving in the right direction. What I liked is that I was involved in every step of the design: choice of products, colours, adaptations etc. and also that it is a universal collection. I’m very proud of that."

The Théo Curin collection is available from this month on the brand's official website and in Lacoste stores. Prices range from £60 to £200 British.
