Lacoste Spring/Summer 2013 RTW – New York Fashion Week

As Lacoste is getting ready to mark its 80th anniversary, the brand’s creative director, Felipe Oliveira Baptista, even more clearly outlines the sporty vibe of his creations in the Lacoste spring/summer 2013 collection, demonstrated at New York Fashion Week. The line was quite light and plain, filled with lots of festive new prints, breezy shapes and stylish rainwear. The designer also took the brand’s more classic looks and revitalized them, cutting polo shirtdresses looser and playing with color blocks and mesh. Overall the collection was quite wearable and functional and would work for day-to-day looks.

The Lacoste spring/summer 2013 collection was quite modern and polished. The pieces were mostly in a pure white color palette, which was here and there accented by yellow, pink, pale blue and patterns, such as stripes. “I wanted to find a new way of talking about the anniversary,” Baptista explained, “but in a slightly quirky way, so I did that through the prints.”
The clear plastic jackets worn over cropped tops and miniskirts were really impressive, while the alligator green leather mini dress was definitely the queen of the line. The designer also used interesting cut-outs that gave a graphic-like effect to the dresses. The footwear was practical and to-die-for and beauty wise, you could see only fresh and clean faces with a pink gloss coating the lips. The hair was tucked behind the ears and worn with a deep side part. Overall, the Lacoste spring/summer 2013 collection was a deserved way of celebrating the house’s anniversary!
