The Lacoste Spring 2011 collection shown at NY Fashion Week reflects an emphasis on lifestyle-focused fashion. Gone are the form-fitting, skin-tight styles we've seen in previous seasons, in favor of sheer sportswear, breezy jumpsuits and loose, slouchy minidresses.
Although several outfits from the Lacoste Spring 2011 presentation were all-white, splashes of vibrant red, orange and hot pink gave the catwalk show a nice pop.
Implications - Fashion is in the midst of an evolution; consumers are avoiding tight, constricting styles and are instead opting for loose and sheer ones. This shift in style reflects the fast-paced lifestyles that consumers now live -- they seek comfort above all else. Industries need to be aware of this need for comfort as well as style in order to cater to this demographic.
