Paris: A rising star on the Paris schedule, Felipe Oliveira Baptista brings a distinctly graphic and urban point of view to the runway, which for S/S 13 translated into a fantastically chic uniform of colorblocked basics. Key pieces included boxy short sleeve shirting, tapered trousers, tunic tops and t-shirt dresses, each serving as a canvas for strategic slices of color, precise cutouts or an angular modern camouflage print. As the presentation progressed, Baptista grew more confident with his patterns, crafting a collage of dots and pebbles, while adding shine via coated cotton and leather. Although this type of patchworking is currently a well-established trend it is rarely executed with such engaging tough modernity.—Nina Stotler
