Home Sweet Home ... 10 Crosby Derek Lam Resort 2013 Collection
When it comes to resort or pre-spring collection, what comes in mind would be an array of relaxed, if not slouchy clothes that one would wear while trotting their precious Louis Vuitton baggage around the globe. But for designer Derek Lam, he has interpreted it in a different and yet, a subtler way for his 10 Crosby line.
Rather than sending his girl down to the archetypal African savannah or some oxymoron tropical island laden with swaying palm fronds and crystal clear waters, Lam’s girl remained put and comfortable in her own space called home.
Thus, the 10 Crosby offering for the upcoming Resort season is rather simple — simple cuts, simple silhouettes and simple prints, ranging from geometrical to plaids, as well as floral — and serves as a reflection of what a real girl — not celebrities — would have in her wardrobe.
For instance, the plaid jacket spells preppy chic but can be worn in both casual and formal ways. On the other hand, the printed long black dress with plunging neckline printed with lines that form geometrical shapes is perfect for that casual date or two.
What’s more, just ask any girl next door what does she think of Lam’s Resort collection for his diffusion line and rest assured, it is the collection that they could easily relate to and been looking for. Definitely no frills and purse-friendly too!
10 Crosby Derek Lam is currently retailed at selected online fashion retailers. Visit www.dereklam.com/10crosby/explore/stores/ for store listing.
