Derek Lam Goes Urban for Pre-Fall 2013 Collection

Posted Tuesday January 15, 2013 1:06 PM GMT

Always looking to innovate and excite, Derek Lam chose to focus on a darker side of style for his Pre-Fall 2013 collection.

Bringing together elements that usually don’t combine, the edgy designer chose to rethink some of the orthodoxy behind the transitional season’s convention.

In a recent interview, Lam explained, “I like to push myself to think about things that aren’t so pretty and classical.”

To that end, Derek has introduced a bonded lace sweatshirt, form-fitting dresses with lace and argyle accents, and several other pieces that challenge the Pre-Fall norm.
