Lacoste F/W 2013-14

In 2013, Lacoste celebrates its 80th anniversary. That is a lot of cotton-pique tennis polos. Felipe Oliveira Baptista, who continues to delight and intrigue me as the brand’s creative director, decided to show off the seemingly-simple material in its finest, serving us up a range of sporty separates (think pencil skirts, sculptural tops) intended not just for the court but for the great outdoors as well. With the occasional latex jacket, this voluminous collection was kept cut slim to the body, and head to toe monochrome furthered this effect.
