To celebrate the abundance of diversity, Felipe Oliveira Baptista draws inspiration from French cinema, one of his first windows through which he peered into French culture.The spring-summer 2018 RTW collection is inspired by two antagonistic films of the mid-90s, freely combines the street codes of La Haine by Mathieu Kassovitz with the ‘bourgeois’ normcore ones of Eric Rohmer’s Conte d’été.
The theme of the two films is Undeniable Social Jumble and Unlikely Cohabitation. Thus raising the question of what today is formal and informal, sport or sportswear. Creating an asserted sensuality and a joyful blend of codes. For example, you will find the crocodile stamped on a loafer’s buckle or imposes it upon the golden buttons of a piped cardigan. There is a double-breasted blazer for men and women, high-waisted trousers, with their front-pleats, folds, and turn-up cuffs. However, our favorite pieces are the windbreakers, pea jackets and XXL tracksuits with large brightly colored yokes, the go-to pieces the 90s youth, are re-released as a high-tech version of themselves: materials breathe while fabrics are thermo-bonded and no longer sewn.
The Lacoste Spring/Summer 2018 Ready – To – Wear Collection presented during Paris Fashion Week is the Lacoste of the future and it’s making the statement that sportswear has become a whole new ball game.
