A thank you to Lacoste creative director Christopher Lemaire for the jolt of color on an otherwise gray Saturday morning.

Luscious shades of raspberry, yellow and green were a lovely wakeup call enlivening a cute funnel necked sweater dress, a sassy jumpsuit and a colorblocked tube dress.

While we expected to see many variations of the famous polo shirt theme - and there were a few including a terrific cropped jacket - we lusted most for the yummy hand-knitted alpaca sweaters that topped slim leggings.
