about

In 2002, Felipe Oliveira Baptista presents his first collection under his name at the �Festival de Hy�res� where he is the co-winner of the �Grand Prix�. The shop Colette buys this first collection and dedicates it a window during Paris Fashion Week. In 2003, the Felipe Oliveira Baptista label is officially launched. With the help of the burserie, one from ANDAM and a second from the LVMH Group. Both awarded to help launch and finance the first collection and show in Paris. For the past five seasons Felipe has been showing a mix of his Pr�t-�-porter and Couture Collections.

The Look

Choosing a simple color palette of black and white, Baptista mixed Grecian looks with contemporary silhouettes, a sure sign that his target market was the younger and/or future couture clients.
Kimono inspired dresses, draped voluminously and halter gowns with flared skirts, off the shoulder dresses rolled at the hem and trench coat pantsuits showed off Baptista�s creativity and vision.
Call it street couture if you want, because there is also a touch of hip-hop in the collection.
The collection is interesting enough to the attendees, but one element was missing and it was the most important � haute couture.
With a high percentage of the garments machine made, the legends that made haute couture, i.e., exquisite hand embroidery and beading, and the designer�s hands-on work were sorely omitted.
