Derek Lam, “a California boy who was raised in San Francisco in its hippie heyday” style.com wrote, showcased his new spring collection at New York Fashion Week just today, not with crazy brights or even pastels one might normally associate with spring and rebirth and whatnot. Nope, there was a lot of black and white, some yellow and blue. Gingham played a big role, and as Leandra Medine of the Man Repeller Instagrammed while watching the show: “Please invite me to your picnic!” Spot on, I say.
Don’t worry though, his collection was complete with dresses, wide leg pants and structured tops. One of my favorite looks featured all creamy white dress with large pockets and cutout shoulders. Topping it off was a fringed scarf reminiscent of something from an Isabel Marant collection but still distinctly Lam. These same scarves were also used as loose belts. Large belts were used to pull everything else together, including these great spring coats, and uh-may-zing gladiator sandals finished off the runway looks.
