Lacoste Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

The Lacoste spring/summer 2014 collection unveiled on the third day of New York Fashion Week has one beautiful trend imprinted all over: minimalism with a sporty vibe. The creative director of the French luxury sportswear brand, Felipe Oliveira Baptista brought a straight, clean line for the new season, one that is utterly wearable and stylish with a fresh sporty touch. Straying away from experimental tendencies, Lacoste rather pays tribute to the brand’s heritage and goes for fabrics and cuts that have craved its history through years.

Backstage, before the Lacoste spring 2014 rtw show, Baptista told Vogue.com: “I wanted to take the classic fabrics that are familiar to Lacoste in this very light and technical direction.”
As a result, the Lacoste spring/summer 2014 collection concentrates on simple lines, clean cuts, a soft color palette, smashing contrasts and delicate transparencies. The classic tennis shirt was the focus of the collection, which was revived and transformed into impressive coats and dresses with sheer sleeves and hems used over here or there. The sporty vibe of the line was also embraced with a line of polo shirts, sport-jackets-turned-dresses and running shoes that completed most of the looks.
Crisp whites, blues, greens, burnt orange and pink hues were the colors used for the Lacoste spring/summer 2014 collection, and when it comes to prints and patterns, think clean! Instead of this, the designer managed to create interest through sharp contrasts between colors and textures.

There were a couple of knit dresses demonstrated, still the main role was taken by the transparent pieces, which were mostly white and minimalist, recalling the ‘90s. To this end, think oversized shirts, jackets, blazers and pants.
Like anything else, the accessories and the beauty looks of the Lacoste spring/summer 2014 rtw show were minimalist and clean. Definitely th best way of making a statement!
