It’s been high time Samantha Stosur and Lacoste found their place in our well-known overviews of women’s tennis fashion. This is our first feature of the best-ranked Australian WTA player and the French brand of Lacoste with tradition dating back to 1933.
Stosur’s orange Lacoste dress received a lot of exposure, as she wore it at six tournaments, including the Australian Open, and at two Fed Cup ties, in Adelaide and Kharkiv.
In the above dark version of the same dress Stosur reached her first Grand Slam final, at the 2010 French Open.
Lacoste stayed faithful to their sporty and clean cuts, and as Wimbledon requires white clothes, Stosur was dressed in a simple dress without details, except for the three buttons in the front, present pretty much throughout the season.
For San Diego Sam got back to the black Roland Garros dress.
As of New Haven, Lacoste departed from the accent of three buttons, replacing them with accentuated pockets on skorts and contrast binding on tops.
My absolute favorite from Lacoste 2010 and Samantha Stosur is the white New Haven dress. I love clean white with just a little bit of black details. My least favorite has to be the orange dress.
I would give Lacoste a big thumbs up for their designs – they seem to have found a perfect cut and are sticking to it. Nothing revolutionary, no glamor, but if you want a solid tennis dress, Lacoste could be a good way to go, especially if you’re not a tennis star, which obviously most people are not.
What do you think? Is the partnership of Lacoste and Sam fruitful fashion-wise?
