Loving Derek Lam and so are the critics! From style.com: Derek Lam's inspiration comes from,"Richard Neutra's Kaufmann House in Palm Springs: 'Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack crooning by the piano and Angie Dickinson lounging by a crystal-blue pool. Mid-century louche and luxury.'" For me, a long-awaited tour de force by a designer from whom I've always sensed great potential.
The design inspiration is a perfect example of how architectural and fashion design intersect and what emerges from it is an interpretation that creates a dialogue between different creative fields.
