Felipe Oliveira Baptista Goes on Hiatus


Felipe Oliveira BaptistaAfter dropping off the Paris fashion week schedule last week, WWD reports that Felipe Oliveira Baptista may not return to the catwalk for several seasons—if ever. The ready-to-wear label announced that it is suspending production for an “undetermined period.” Baptista likely will direct much of his attention to Lacoste, where he serves as creative director, but also suggested that he and his wife, Séverine Oliveira Baptista (who is also the line’s cofounder), may “venture into another design or creative field” as well. “It’s the end of a chapter, not the book,” the designer said.
