Felipe Oliveira Baptista, creative director of Lacoste, dressed the Fall/Winter 2012 men with three colors in mind– black, white and beige… and all the greys there are in between. Unlike the female counterpart, where he displayed a more colorful palette, the Portuguese designer offered an austere proposal in color, but complex in materials and cuts. A timeless silhouette with a modern twist. Interesting knitting details (sweaters with incorporated scarfs and pockets) and leather/wool coats combined with drop-crotch sweatpants. Continuing the modernization of the label, started by his predecessor Christophe Lemaine, Oliveira Baptista gave Lacoste an upscale functionality aimed to dress the city dweller.
