What does that mean for the clothes? This didn't look like some retro throwback collection. On the contrary, in trademark Lam fashion, it was brimming with timeless sportswear: special pieces like a white linen trench with glossy black leather trim and elbow patches, a future-vintage python pencil skirt in a patchworked medallion pattern, and an elongated brown leather blazer you'll keep forever. There were plenty of hardworking pieces too, like colorful, chunky rib-knit sweaters, and a great pair of navy silk tapering trousers with deep white cuffs. Locating it in the SoCal of the middle of the last century also made it look right for right now: very on-trend engineered prints with a resort-ready vibe. The holographic sequins on a pair of tank dresses also looked like fun. California, here we come.
