Lam Play

Derek Lam along with contemporary Phillip Lim, is a New York favourite for amplifying American sportswear into something luxurious and elegant. Lam did have a bit of fun this season with a white satin bomber jacket dotted with flowers but it was these trousers, a recurring shape in the collection with its dramatic front pleat creating a waft of unexpected volume that really stood out.
