Complicated Simplicity In Derek Lam Pre-Fall

Derek Lam pre-Fall season's collection was inspired by Malevich and the American Legacy exhibition that took place at the Gagosian Gallery, especially by Kazimir Malevich circles and squares. I personally like the 1970's American style in these creations. Speaking of prints, then we see grid checks, interesting graphics, and single-circle eyelet details. The collection is focused on urbane separates that feature clean but fluid cuts. Indeed, those clean-lined functional clothes are perfect for the streets wear, office working days and many other events. The color palette features red, navy, white, black, camel, cream beige and indigo. My personal favorites from the Autumn-Winter pre-collection are gently flared trousers, denim culottes and swingy coats. Everything looks unfussy and luxe.

Derek Lam Resort Youthful Approach

Resort is back in town. Derek Lam reveals new cruise collection, which was inspired by the 1970's begging, when fashion began moving away from madame couture and toward sportswear. The pre-spring has a focus on youthful approach, architectural cuts and lightweight fabrics. The silhouette is slim and comes with flared-leg pants, mannish separates and retro colors. I love those eye-catching color pairings which include sky blue and burgundy mix. Each look is worth to be worn at work and semi-formal meetings. Lam's woman is sophisticated person, who loves versatility and she adores mix and match.
