NEW YORK — There was no choking on the court this morning at Lacoste despite there being plenty of Richie Tenenbaum about Felipe Oliveira Baptista’s collection for Fall / Winter 2015. Before any models hit the runway, Les Twins were spotted backstage along with Caroline de Maigret and Cécile Cassel, all of whom were poised for what was a collection that wedded the label’s past with its present in one simple hashtag-worth slogan, Réne did it first. French tennis legend Jean Réne Lacoste of course was known as the Crocodile for his tenacious game. Fast forward to Saturday morning and the tenacity on the runway belonged to a quartet of Next beauties including Ola Rudnicka, Anna Cleveland, Dani Witt, and Hedvig Palm. Game, set, match!
