Lacoste Catwalk Fashion Show New York Womenswear FW2014
A visit to a golf course built in the late Twenties in France’s Basque region by René Lacoste’s father-in-law, was the starting point for Felipe Oliveira Baptista’s collection for Lacoste. He handled the golfing theme with restraint.
The sporty looks were relaxed, polished and wearable, but could have used a little zest. The women’s portion had its moments of girlish charm, lik the cool, oversize white sweater with an abstract motif over a skirt. For men, Baptista worked in a mostly tonal palette with ensembles in burgundy, blue and beige, including a double-breasted hooded jacket with pants cut close to the body.
