+Footwear, Accessories….

The runway collection that Lacoste shows in NYC…sets the tone for what delivers later in the rtw apparel, footwear and accessories…posted prior.

Zipped parka mixed virgin wool--ribbed cuffs, collar

Designer Felipe Olivera Baptista Fall 2014 collection of cozy layers, technical wool jersey, knits and nylon separates ---was inspired by the Basque countryside setting of the family golf course, Chantico…belonging to the Lacoste descendants…and archival images of what was worn on and off the golf course-"nonchalance elegance"….the rustic purity of the  architecture…and of course, the weather.

Highlights were many---especially the parkas all well done with practical features and incredibly chic….countryside or city appropriate.
