Felipe Oliveira Baptista's Fall 2013 collection for Lacoste made it seem as though he can predict the weather. This collection, sporty in its attitude and precise in its construction and presentation, featured prints of icebergs all too reminiscent of the masses of snow the show's attendees had to slog through on Saturday morning. The designer used boiled wool and mohair to give his outerwear extra warmth, and injected flashes of orange, blue, and bright green into an otherwise pale gray offering. Baptista used transparent rain slickers to protect some of his ensembles, but many of them looked warm enough to stand up to the elements on their own.
