collection images: derek lam, resort

by Jeremy Danté

colorfully imaginative & relative to what we’ve seen during show season, derek lam manages to collectively tribute his latest design work with a revitalized approach to the 2012 resort pre-season. what’s most inspiring of the derek lam design aesthetic is the quality of construction; you can see it in the most simplified garments which allow basic items to become tranformed into works of art. i love the use of color in this collection; the use of blue is very resort & oozes that effortlessness associated with the resort/cruise pre-season. while some use of black & rich tones of brown are seen, these palette additions allow greater forms of seasonal longevity for consumers looking to make long term style investments. overall, the collection is a fitting follow-up to what we’ve seen on the runways but is progressive & appropriate through cut & palette. solid, all in all.
