La saison été 2015 envisagée par Felipe Oliveira Baptista n’a pas dérogé à son mantra : sport + chic + précision = Lacoste.

Bally ne se résume pas seulement à des chaussures et des portefeuilles. […]

Blanc, jaune, marron, noir. Une drôle d’abeille imaginée par J.W. […]

Contrairement à ce que les origines de son créateur laisseraient croire, Kenzo, c’est Paris.
