Presented at New York Fashion Week in February, the LACOSTE FW16 runway collection is a playful take on apres ski chic that manages to achieve 1970's retro chic and futuristic glam at the same time. The collection is not without nods to classic LACOSTE looks, such as terrycloth headbands reminiscent of Wes Anderson fashions and subtle references to the brand's iconic crocodile logo.

The collection features creative director Felipe Oliveira Baptista's signature futuristic style, while paying homage to the brand's 1970's athletic roots. Standout looks in the playful ski-inspired collection include an over-sized quilted red parka with vertical off-white stripes bearing the brand name and a two-piece dark orange-beige skirt set boasting a pattern of skiers that recalls the similar Emoji.
