Since the birth of athleisure, designers have welcomed the merging of sports into style pieces. Fashion enthusiasts need not to only look elegant during workout sessions; they can wear beautiful athletic-inspired pieces outside the gym. Lacoste is among the fashion brands with this sporting heritage. To celebrate the launch of its 2019 Tennis Remix collection, Lacoste hosted a tennis match and fashion show in Rockwell, Makati. Society figures like Amanda Fernandez, Nikki Huang, and Sofia Zobel-Elizalde graced the affair. It was a night of friendly tennis matches among A-list tennis enthusiasts and guests.
