MONTREAL, Jan. 20 /CNW Telbec/ - The marriage between Lolë and Québec
designer Andy Thê-Anh is definitely one made in fashion heaven. A
proven favourite of the very chic, he is now chief designer for the
successful women's active performance apparel brand created in Québec
and sold all across Canada, the US and in Europe. The first Lolë
collections designed by Thê-Anh will be available in the fall of 2012.
"From the moment we met Andy we immediately felt drawn to the man, his
creativity and his enthusiasm for Lolë," said Bernard Mariette, the
company's president and CEO. "I am truly thrilled he is joining our
team. His experience, in combination with that of Evelyn Trempe and
Stéphanie Noel, is a major asset for the evolution of our brand. Adding
his personality and creativity to the team will go far in continuing to
make Lolë a success."
Recruiting this leading Canadian designer is certain to help make
Coalision one of the world's fashion giants in the active performance
apparel market. In addition to having created clothing for prestigious
brands such as Parasuco, Andy Thê-Anh collections have sold
successfully all over Canada and in several prominent boutiques and
stores in the US, such as Neiman Marcus. His creations may be found in
the closets of dozens of Canadian and American celebrities, such as
Jeanne Becker, Karine Vanasse, Kreesia Turner and France Beaudoin.
"After I wrote the final chapter on the adventure that was my own
brand," said Thê-Anh, "it was clear the moment had arrived to join a
visionary company, one that was full of ambition and exceptional
potential. That's exactly what I found at Coalision, especially in the
personality and image of the Lolë brand. Lolë invites women with a
passion for a life lived well, which is the message that I have always
conveyed through my creations: bringing fashion to women's active
outdoor lives through a modernism tinged with femininity."
Lolë creates a wide range of functional and innovative clothing for
women on the move.
A blend of the words "coalition" and "collision," the name Coalision
truly reflects what our company is all about: a strong coalition
stemming from the healthy collision of ideas. Coalision owns the ORAGE
and LOLË clothing brands, which are distributed to a network of more
than 2,500 retailers in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.
