Lacoste Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW – NYFW

When we think casual but trendy, it is Lacoste that comes to mind with a few staple looks that we are hard pressed to keep updating our wardrobes with. Sporty but stylish, the Lacoste fall/winter 2016-2017 collection for the ready-to-wear line shown off on the New York Fashion Week runway had some pretty awesome pieces to be found. A combination of male and female creations took to the stage, with both the androgynous and the overtly feminine appearing among the mix. Channeling a “futuristic ski vibe” was the massage of this runway show, where we saw pretty wearable Sixties-infused youthful designs with strong sporty references.

Patchwork sweaters and body-con pieces overall look splendid in a deep sea color and a darker navy blue, while we notice everything from slit dresses to really baggy concepts, furry coats in blue to side stripe track pants appear on the catwalk. Felipe Oliveira Baptista brought in something new and different with this collection, focusing his efforts on the blues and orange hues, with a good amount of bright red in there. With a few additions of pink and purple combinations, the 48-outfit-long show had much to offer those of us, who have been great fans of the band for many years now. There was not a polo shirt in sight though, which we are a little miffed at.

The clothing shown off was devoid of prints for the most part, other than the odd ski-oriented designs that caught our attention on baggy asymmetrical hemmed dresses, long, poncho-like pieces that graze the floor and look divine to snuggle in, sweater and skirt matching sets, and a hoodie that is made for the upcoming year, celebrating 2017 during a February 2016 show. We do have one coat with swirling white tiger prints, while some tops also appear with Lacoste emblazoned across the chest. It is a great collection of wearable looks and we cannot wait to add those mustard and aqua lined sports pants to our workout section.

Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects to the Lacoste ready-to-wear show was the use of boots throughout, weather worn underneath pants or under skirts and dresses. We see them in different shades of blue, in red, in white, beige and brown, knee-length in height and a little on the looser side, which bodes well for those of us with soccer calves.

We love the sports sneakers as well, made for running and playing in, a staple for the brand. Those appear in both male and female versions. We see soft materials and shiny ones, corded knits and warm wools, all in one line, meant to keep you warm as you are working out, as well as having you appear stylish when you feel like dressing comfortably while heading out. Add in loose hair with a slight side part to them and barely any makeup and you have the 2016 Lacoste woman.
