Lacoste wows Fashion Week crowd with winter collection
New York, Feb 11 : French design house Lacoste was a hit at New York's Fashion Week with its fall-winter collection, featuring a polar look, while Max Azria unveiled his second Herve Leger line for urban professional women.
The crowd at Lincoln Center enjoyed a sunny day Saturday in the wake of a blizzard that buried parts of Manhattan.
The public and designers appeared happy to get out and enjoy the offerings of Fashion Week.
Organizers brought in snow-clearing equipment Friday, with workers clearing streets and scattering salt to keep people from slipping on the ice.
Some visitors were unable to make it to Fashion Week due to flight cancellations at the metro area's three airports.
Lacoste presented a collection for men and women inspired, fittingly enough, by the polar expeditions.
The Lacoste fall-winter collection features soft colors - white and marble, but also light blues and greens - with barely visible patterns of landscapes, rocks and icebergs.
Spanish designer Katarina Grey made her debut Saturday at Fashion Week, but not at Lincoln Center.
The 25-year-old Grey unveiled a sophisticated line inspired by the Versailles Palace that featured rich weaves - satin, crepe and leather - with lace, embroidery and brocades, but also with elegant sheer blacks.
