LeSportsac has announced a collaboration with iconic fashion designer and creative director Alber Elbaz.

During his groundbreaking 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.

On September 5th, timed with the opening of New York Fashion Week, Alber Elbaz and LeSportsac will celebrate the collaboration with a launch party at Spring Studios, official home to NYFW: The Shows. Elbaz will be in attendance to personally celebrate the launch.

Elbaz’s timeless 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, colourful 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, Colour Me Leopard, and Colour Me Zebra – all lined with an exclusive logo print designed by Elbaz) creating an eye-catching collection sure to demand a spot in your wardrobe.

“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.
