Derek Lam Debuts Pre-Fall '12

Posted Thursday January 12, 2012 2:33 PM GMT

Citing Scott Schuman photographs as his inspiration, Derek Lam has introduced his new collection for the Pre-Fall 2012 season.

And as usual, Mr. Lam had plenty of explanation as to his direction with the lineup this time around. He shared, “Jackets are the new item to have.”

“Men’s wear is more exciting than women’s. I enjoy designing men’s wear-inspired clothes for women,” he added, denying that he had a collection for gents in the works.

Instead, Lam offers an old-world Florentine theme throughout his lineup, including dandy jackets, tailored coats, and tuxedo-striped trousers.
