Felipe Oliveira Baptista showed his most sophisticated and mature collection to date at the Portugese Embassy. Fabrics, sometimes pleated,  draped around the body with volumes that made me think about the original  Balenciaga mixed with  a Tom Ford circa Gucci look. Meaning that there is a definite commercial appeal . I liked it.
