LOLË snags Andy Thê-Anh as Co-Head Designer

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."
