The debut of 10 Crosby Derek Lam, the designer’s contemporary brand, launches today on Amazon Fashion. Derek told me about his inspiration for the collection (so cool!) And his favorite look.
“For 10 Crosby Spring 2013, the design process began with Rodeo Girls and their unique interpretations of Western chic,” Derek said. “We were initially fascinated by the painstakingly applied Rodeo shirts, especially the ones captured in the book Rodeo girl by Lisa Eisner. Inspiration also came from the timeless style of Johnny Cash. Sophisticated with subtle Western details, the way he stood in clothes, the bulge of his shoulders, this position inspired the shapes of the jackets and the attitude of the clothes. “
Her favorite look? Find out below. “I like the idea of mixing stripes with texture, jacquard box pants and a striped blouse.”
