Amazon may be a one-stop shop for cheap books, everyday gadgets, and video games, but Amazon Fashion has also been a burgeoning marketplace. So, to mark the first step in a new monobrand e-tailing venture, Amazon has debuted an online store today dedicated to Derek Lam‘s 10 Crosby line.
All the structure, prints, and asymmetrical coolness of Derek Lam, and with a much gentler price tag. The fruits of the designer’s team-up with retailer Kohl’s will be in store come April, but the lookbook has been released, and we’ve pulled some of our favorite outfits.
We already loved Derek Lam‘s designs, but after reading this we think we just may be kindred spirits.
We were surprised to hear that Derek Lam was leaving Tod’s, mainly because his role there had been so under-the-radar, which is a somewhat neutral way of saying under-publicized. But while we assumed the departure was an amicable parting-of-ways, a very confusingly worded statement from Tod’s indicates that things may have been just a smidge more complicated.
Well that was fast. Just one day after designer Derek Lam accused licensing machine Ivanka Trump of “perfectly” copying one of his shoe designs, her people have already fired back at the accusation — and Lam’s cease and desist letter.
Did Ivanka Trump knock off Derek Lam? It sure looks like it.
It’s a day of thanks, a day of family, a day of watching football and parades on the television. But really, it’s a day of food. So while you’re prepping for this afternoon’s gastronomical marathon, we’ve rounded up some of fashion’s favorite faces and asked them what they’ll be stuffing themselves with tonight. Their answers vary from the traditional to the sweet to the downright debaucherous. Take a look and enjoy!
Derek Lam‘s new secondary line 10 Crosby is a venture into new territory for the designer, but just because he’s making slightly lower priced clothes doesn’t mean he’s ready to jump into the fray of designer collaborations.
We love how Michelle Obama constantly recycles the designer pieces in her wardrobe, but we’ve never seen her upcycle one of them quite like this before. For this week’s National Design Awards, the first lady put on her very own designer cap and reworked a runway dress she’s had for almost a year by chopping the sleeves off of it.
The dresses with the most votes in Derek Lam‘s crowd-curated diffusion collection for eBay are going to production. And as we predicted back in [month], other than their novelty for being part of the first group of designer clothes the Internet has voted into salability, the clothes are a touch boring.
This was the week that Marie Claire got embroiled in some “fattie” controversy, Justin Bieber was the victim of unfortunate Photoshopping and Harry Potter stole from Alexander McQueen. It was also the week we learned Anna Wintour worked for Penthouse and that Target made us very, very happy.
Derek Lam‘s first collection for eBay will be the first diffusion line that asks shoppers to select which designs will actually make it to the point of sale.
We’re suckers for diffusion lines. We’ve bought pieces from tons of our favorite designers — Rodarte, Zac Posen, Alexander McQueen — for a mere fraction of what we’d spend on their full-range lines. And we’re excited to report that Derek Lam may soon jump on the diffusion bandwagon.
New York Fashion Week is finally over! It was exciting, beautiful, disorganized, fun and most of all exhausting. And we loved every second of it.
Besides being incredibly talented, Derek Lam is also super personable and really smart. As such, it didn’t surprise us that the thoughtful designer excerpted a New Yorker article about minimalism to explain his inspiration for his — you guessed it — minimalist collection.
Did you write a senior thesis in college? If the answer is yes, then there’s a pretty big chance that after working slavishly for hundreds of hours, it faded into the academic ether never to be seen again — let alone published. But for 20 lucky RISD grads, their senior theses were shown at New York Fashion Week.
Wang, Wu, Lam, Lim. We’ve been coveting their goods for quite some time now. And while their aesthetics are quite variable, they all have something in common: their Asian heritage.
