collection images: derek lam, pre-fall

by Jeremy Danté

long length skirts in pink & purple were the main attraction of the derek lam collection, while a true connection & representation of current consumer interest seemed void. in the collection, i enjoy the use of fur & can appreciate the exaggerated design lines seen in the dresses. however, the pink particularly makes me question lam’s judgement. while pops of color are seen in many of the pre-fall collections to provide contrast & balance- the choice pink of lam just seems questionable. while still a pre-fall collection, i will wait to see what appears on the runways of new york fashion week, come february. overall, a solid collection, aside from the pepto bismol pink. the use of purple was done well & i wish a better complimentary color was included.
