Chinese American fashion designer Derek Lam is the latest to be a part of Kohl’s DesigNation program, and his collection is said to have taken inspiration from the Brazilian women of Rio de Janiero.
“I imagined a woman from Rio going to the beach in the morning, meeting friends for lunch and having drinks at the end of the day—with maybe a little work in between,” Lam told Women’s Wear Daily
With his newfound inspiration, Lam, who is known for his pretty, girly fabrics, and smooth silhouettes, has created a line including dresses, skirts, shorts, tank tops and more.
The Kohl’s collection is set to be released in April and will retail for between $36 and $98.
“Accessibility is no longer the opposite of luxury.”
Lam is only the latest designer to create lower-priced collections for Kohl’s. Narciso Rodriguez’s collection will be available in November of this year.
Talk a look at Lam’s Spring/Summer 2013 line. Do you think his Koh’l collection will look anything like these runway looks?
