I think Derek Lam is such a sweet person and a really good designer. But some of these looks remind me a little too much of Marni. I think it goes beyond just a little Marni influence and makes half the show seem a little derivative for me. But I am still rooting for Derek!
I’m soo glad you brought Derek Lam up, I’ve been waiting to talk about his show with you. I’ve always loved his work but had gotten to the point where I thought I knew what to expect (albeit beautifully delicate and expertly cut pieces).
So imagine my suprise and enjoyment to see some pattern and texture in his pieces. And color! I was wowed by his departure and can’t wait to see what he does in the fall. I think he’s at his best when it comes to fall and winter fashions. I can just imagine the coats now.
it reminds me a bit fo some previosu calvin klein collections— especiallyt eh sue of color int eh bands adb gernal blocks. it s a great fresh take on minimalsim. a a side note–thhat si Chanle Iman. this new model that is sort of breaking right now… very cool. of all tyhe pictures you picked, scott.
Most of what I’ve seen on the shows appear to be muted grays and browns which is nice but after a long gray winter – I usually want color. So, I have to say bravo (!) because these colors are lovely. In addition to that, the cut and shape of the dress is gorgeous.
