This past week, I got a chance to view the Lacoste Fall 2012 Collection from the American Express Skybox at Lincoln Center. This chic winter-infused experience designed by Felipe Oliviera Baptista, and influenced by the upcoming London Olympics definitely transported attendees to an incredible snowy wonderland. The runway set was complete with large plexi-glass boxes that blew snow made of feathers within them in order to create a magical winter scene that the models boldly strutted around as top editors took note.
The Lacoste collection began with sleek, athletic-inspired dresses adorned with zippers, bold-stripes and cold-weather ready hoods. I also loved the mixture of athletic looks and silhouettes made from leather, handsome men's coats in wool worn on gorgeous models and fun tweed-pieces featured towards the end of the show. Overall, the styles were both fashion forward and wearable at the same time.
When I think Lacoste, I usually picture my colorful tennis shirts and men in the same with their famous crocodile logo. This was definitely a chic, sexy, and interesting departure from what I was expecting! Their latest campaign says, "Lacoste: Unconventional Chic" and it's fashionably clear as to why! The best way for you to experience the show and be transported to the scene is with the video below! I would also like to say that the American Express Skybox is a wonderful way to take in a show and enjoy a New York Fashion Week experience in ultra high-style!
