For the second time Lacoste will outfit the French Olympic delegation at the 2016 Summer Olympics next August in Rio de Janeiro. Felipe Oliveira Baptista used this as his starting point for spring, infusing his fresh and sporty collection with all things “positive, dynamic and free.” In a largely primary color palette, the lineup featured athletic references and national flags a plenty. For women, Baptista rendered polo mini dresses and bomber jackets in bold, abstract flag prints. The sporty look skewed sexy, too: a navy, deep-V jumpsuit with cutouts highlighted body consciousness. As for the men’s wear, technical fabrics such as parachute nylon worked well in summer anoraks and body suits while Japanese crepe cotton elevated the softly constructed suit offering.
