An excellent debut for Felipe Oliveira Baptista, who showed his first collection for the sporty brand at the tents Saturday morning.

Evident in the small lineup: A new joie de vivre – and sexiness. The classic polo dress featured revealing deep armholes and liquid fabrics fluttered seductively as models walked (a flamenco silk poncho – simply a must-have). Super cute for day – rugby striped dresses in hues of caramel and blue, and silken blouses with a Greek key pattern. There were some smart, boxy, military-inspired suitings (really!) and easy-wearing loose pants.  MIA: those huge crocodile emblems– this may not be such a bad thing.

In the house, Miami Heat forward-center Chris Bosh, who, at 6-foot-10, was wearing one of the longest Lacoste striped shirts we’ve ever seen.
