LeSportsac announced its collaboration with iconic fashion designer and creative director Alber Elbaz. During his tenure at LANVIN, Elbaz transformed the 125-year-old French house into one of the most sought-after luxury labels in the world. Leading the design for LeSportsac for Fall 2018, Elbaz has turned his vision into a sublime collection: witty, whimsical and made with love.
Elbaz’s collection for LeSportsac is a light-hearted celebration of women. Describing his joy at collaborating with LeSportsac, Elbaz says: “If we inject more love into fashion, and less fear, we have a beautiful reason to wake up every morning. LeSportsac is fun, colorful and modern – it makes me smile every time.”
The soul and the spirit of the collection are exemplified through exotic, exuberant takes on timeless LeSportsac styles. Playful messages and powerful graphics present in different ways on five prints (Dance with Me, Love Me Kiss Me, Big Kiss, Color Me Leopard, and Color Me Zebra – all lined with an exclusive logo print designed by Elbaz) creating an eye-catching collection sure to demand a spot in any closet.
“Alber’s enthusiastic perspective on life – and thus to design – makes this collaboration so special,” says D’Arcy Jensen, VP Global Creative Director of LeSportsac. “His warmth, humor, and optimism are a perfect fit with our brand personality. He has created empowering designs that encourage us to have fun and laugh more.”
The Alber Elbaz x LeSportsac collection will be available online at lesportsac.com beginning August 15th. The collection will be available in stores worldwide beginning September 2018.
