Felipe Oliveira Baptista Fall Winter Collection 2013/14 in Paris
For his own collection, felipe oliveira baptista - also creative director at lacoste - held a rendezvous at the place vendôme, in the heart of paris. yet nothing in the show appears to be sparkling. instead, in a dark room, to the sound of the brazilian singer, maria bethania, models parade in monochrome tones, ranging from black to several proposals of blue and orange. the dna of the designer - a mix between couture and sportswear, sophistication and lightness - is found but seems to be more controlled. black suits carry different details like lengths of jackets, the addition of a longer piece of fabric, quirky buttons. dresses and sweaters with voluminous sleeves are offered on several occasions. trench type coats, tightened at the waist, are available in leather. animal prints on "tube" dresses in nylon seem to appear and disappear with each movement. the designer is constantly pushing his creations to new horizons, as always in both a quirky and sophisticated spirit, but is of course increasingly appreciated.
