Lacoste Fall/Winter 2013-2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

It was a double celebration for French luxurious sportswear brand Lacoste this year: 80th anniversary and New York Fashion Week. Well, and the union of the two turned out to be something really fabulous and memorable. The Lacoste fall/winter 2013-2014 collection came to celebrate the brand’s anniversary by bringing together things that define Lacoste and that have made it so famous: sport touches, minimalism and the Lacoste signature piqué fabric.

The creative director or Lacoste, Felipe Oliveira Baptista described the Lacoste fall/winter 2013-2014 collection as “an imaginary Antarctic expedition.” And as he noted, to mark the anniversary of the brand, they “played a lot of the heritage. I really wanted to look ahead this time.” As a result he took some signature Lacoste proportions and attributes and tried to create a collection with a strong futuristic vibe. For instance, the piqué fabric was represented in a new, fresh way, matched with leather, foam and Milano jersey. A high accent was placed on the structures: shoulders came wide and sleeves were slightly oversized.
As always, Lacoste brings much monochrome looks in relaxed shades of gray, white, cream and black, but there were also cobalt blue, bottle green and vibrant orange tones that usually came accompanied with others. Glacier and latitude-longitude patterns came to reveal the theme of the collection. Some of the noteworthy looks demonstrated during the show included silhouette-embracing color-blocked dresses, leather dresses with diagonal zippers, transparent latex raincoats worn over knitted pieces, oversized tops worn over pencil skirts or pants and an orange turtleneck popping out under a printed dress with a high slit. The looks were finished off with oversized leather bags and gorgeous high heeled shoes.
Wholly, the Lacoste fall/winter 2013-2014 collection was clean, sporty and relaxed, just like you’d imagine any Lacoste clothing piece.
