PARIS — Ted Lapidus, the French fashion designer who shot to fame in the Sixties with his modern, androgynous-chic designs, emblematized by the safari jacket, died Monday at a hospital in Cannes from respiratory failure. He was 79.
Lapidus, who is survived by three children and two sisters, will be buried on Friday at the Père-Lachaise cemetery in Paris.
