HIGHLIGHTS Media Preview:

Inspired by Lacoste's heritage- as the original tennis fashion brand...the Fall 2016  collection featured many European interpretations of sneakers (white foxing and outsoles)-Hiker Hybrids-(treaded weather tough features) and FASHION comfort short Boots - in the popular bootie/chelsea boot style....combined with all day flattering flats for women = certain savior-faire. City-Recreational Sport.
The color palette or army greens and deep blues-particularly navy and white-dominated the leather selections...including Fall looks for the premium leather L.12.12 sneaker
slight flatform...provides extra cushioning chic comfort is always in style---
high top sneakers...

 soft grey leather uppers...with breathable mesh lining....
treaded outsole is very functional...all day comfort and grippy properties....
the latent leather trim gives a nice pop to black leather sneaker
white canvas laces...tie (dial) in the white outsoles-techy everyday lifestyle sneaker reminds us what we played tennis in-back in grade school

pale blush pink for women is a pretty spot of color for late summer early Autumn wardrobes...and for the Southern Hemisphere dwellers...where Fall is really Spring. Rene Alliot Slip-On up front.

a look from the RTW collection-

the deep green...winter tone that has a bit of blue in it...

this square shape toe-is comfortable...and feminine....

ballet flat but with A LOT more style-has a protective tiny toe bump...the inserts are breathable and can wear all day. With that squarish toe silhouette...nice contrast to all of those pointy toes styles from other brands
high tops get breathable perforations...velcro closures ankle ensure a great fit...sneaker influence on a hiker hybrid is a dominant style for men

RTW men's-French Flair-is later Fall delivery

Winning color palette for men-dark blue-not quite a navy-more a deep marine blue-in keeping with the nautical theme...and burgundy...with darker outsoles---dressy enough for work-insanely lightweight.
