Catherine Spindler – Lacoste

Spindler began her business career at Guerlain

“Catherine Spindler’s appointment comes after [she spent] three years at the service of the brand, enabling us to inject new energy into the collections, to boost [the brand’s] desirability and its global reach, and set a higher bar for our CSR standards and commitments,” said Guibert. “I am happy to be able to count on Catherine to continue developing Lacoste together, and to bolster its ambition of becoming the most inspiring brand in sport fashion,” he added.

Spindler’s mission will be to continue to move Lacoste forward along the premiumization path. The label launched its first polo in 1933, and its current creative director is Louise Trotter.

Lacoste, which opened a flagship on the Champs-Elysées in Paris in May, is sold via 1,100 monobrand stores worldwide. The brand has not disclosed its current revenue, but it topped the €2 billion mark four years ago.
