Derek Lam Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

Derek Lam‘s outstanding spring 2014 collection launched at Sean Kelly Gallery during New York Fashion Week. Lam presents a clean-lined, minimalist collection, which is clearly outstanding and impressive too. The designer drew inspiration from Gauguin and Grès, which partially explains the abundance of gingham prints and stripes in his collection. He mostly makes use of black and white, or blue and white gingham graphics. What Lam does is to show how simple graphics can be turned into art, elegance and beauty.

The most outstanding features of the Derek Lam spring/summer 2014 collection were woven plaid lace skirts and dresses that faded from white to yellow, and subsequently to black, or just from black to white. The color palette of the garments includes hues ranging from yellow, blue and black to white, cream and shades of gray: they are all beautifully and skillfully combined with each other.
Another distinctive feature of the Derek Lam spring/summer 2014 collection is open cut off shoulder dresses combined with tassel scarf necks. This is a new kind of trend, which the designer uses to compensate the open shoulder dress with a closed neck. Tops with belts gave his collection a retro touch, while cross-strapped back in the tweed top was more of a modern take. The dresses and skirts would please the lovers of all skirt lengths, as the designer has both mini, midi, tee-length and maxi dresses and skirts in his spring 2014 collection. The closing look in Derek Lam’s collection was the yellow sundress that was a fresh and bright touch to the minimalist graphical line.

Accessories, like gladiator sandals, head wraps and block heels added uniqueness to the Derek Lam spring/summer 2014 collection. In a sentence, what is peculiar in Lam’s new line is that there is nothing extravagant there, but there certainly is a clearly distinctive style.
