Lacoste RTW Fall 2014

A visit to Chantaco, the 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. He steered clear of his more experimental proclivities and handled the golfing theme with restraint — perhaps a bit too much.


The sporty looks were relaxed, polished and wearable, but, like the zippered jackets shown with slouchy pants, could have used a little zest. The women’s portion had its moments of girlish charm, i.e., the cool, oversize white sweater with an abstract motif over a kicky 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 — functional looks that were in line with many of the trends seen on the European men’s runways.
