New hire: Felipe Oliveira Bap­tista Tak­ing over from: Christophe Le­maire When Christophe Le­maire left La­coste to join Her­mès, Por­tu­gal-born Felipe Oliveira Bap­tista, who has pre­vi­ously worked with Max Mara and Cer­ruti be­fore found­ing his own la­bel in 2003, took on the reins. With his sen­si­bil­i­ties finely at­tuned to clas­sics and sports­wear, the de­signer has brought out a de­but col­lec­tion for Spring 2012 that has al­ready been com­pared to the work of René La­coste him­self. He is also said to be work­ing on mak­ing the la­bel ‘croc­o­dile-free’, and that is some­thing that was made clear with his first at­tempt. There is an in­nate sense of re­straint and lux­ury that in­forms his work, and it looks like it will con­tinue to at La­coste.
