Derek Lam 10 Crosby
February 06, 2012 New York
Lam is a smart businessman, particularly when it comes to his more reasonably priced line, and he's paid attention to what his savvy customer is and isn't buying. For one, she's still crazy about silk pajama sets, which were updated this time around in a playful yet sophisticated kittens print. He also carried over the tomcat motif to fluid palazzo pants with polka dots that turned out to be balls of yarn when viewed up close. Cute. Another recurring crowd pleaser is the tuxedo-stripe trouser, shown here in Prince of Wales check with a seventies flare leg. Lam might've had Home Alone in mind, but his customers will want to show off these casual-cool clothes in public.
