When it comes to the lookbook for his 10 Crosby line, Derek Lam likes to keep things fresh. Instead of a model like Hanne Gaby Odiele or Sara Blomqvist, who starred in previous seasons, he cast beauty blogger Emily Weiss. The Into the Gloss founder also happened to style the lookbook. As for the collection itself, it tread on familiar ground—the Wild West—but did so in way that retained the label's edgy, downtown sensibility. Lam hasn't gone all rodeo on us.
If leather pants were laced up behind the ankles, blouses got the cowboy treatment with Ultrasuede embroidery, and a cool blue jumpsuit's faded lizard print looked like it came straight off the frontier, other pieces—like a color-blocked royal blue and black button-up cardigan and a pair of leather short shorts—were more subtly western. Breaking from the plot, Lam also brought back his signature pajama separates again, this time in a 10C monogram pattern. The looks were accessorized with 10 Crosby bags—a first for the secondary line—that were inspired by folios and envelope clutches. All in all, Lam delivered a collection that girls will be itching to wear come spring—this editor included.
