Modern Prep at Lacoste

Influenced by snowy slopes of Megeve, France, and the colors of the Jamaican flag, Lacoste creative director Christophe Lemaire showed a fresh, modern spin on the preppy line.

The runway and first row of the Tent at Bryant Park were swathed in white faux-fur. The show started with luxe knits, adding to the cozy snow lodge feel.

Muted colors -- grays, jewels and sorbets -- added to the softness of the show. Jacquard patterns brought depth to both men's and women's clothing.
Preps on vacation in Jamaica turned into traditional polos with subtle coloring, and for girls, adorable and sporty polo dresses paired with short knit ties.
