Lacoste: Futuristic Arctic


Designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista showcases the innovative side of Lacoste at New York Fashion Week

Lacoste's Fall 2013 collection, presented at Fashion Week last Saturday, reminded us of a little-known fact: Rene Lacoste, founder of the brand and accomplished tennis player, was the first to introduce the polo shirt to the world. In 1933, he patented a new concept for a tennis shirt using pique, a breathable and light-weight type of cotton, which became the wardrobe staple we know today.

This season was based on exploring this material and its variants. The young Creative Director of the brand came up with a range of pique clothing inspired by polar expeditions. Featuring ice-cool colors and futuristic silhouettes, the collection was a sophisticated homage to 80 years of ground-breaking sportswear design under the alligator label.
