10 crosby

May 24, 2013

I found this collection from 10 Crosby by Derek Lam while surfing the style.com archives, and even though this collection is actually from last spring, I still find it incredibly beautiful and relevant. Admittedly these pieces are way outside my personal budget but I still love looking through collections new & old to help me find inspiration for my wardrobe.

I'm loving the idea of finding a brightly hued maxi dress which I can belt. Stripes on stripes is equally brilliant and could easily be re-created with vertically striped skinnies, a horizontal striped tee and then broken up with an easy white jacket. Also, a striped blazer, floral print chiffon blouse and slouchy boyfriend jeans need to happen this spring or early fall... and I'd love to find some fantastic separates with a geometric print too. Swoon! What's your favourite look from the collection?!

6 sweet notes:

  1. It's actually quite surprising how little spring fashions hve changed over the past few years - and how little they're likely to change even next year! I went to the fabric trade show here in Paris with my cousin, who is a textile designer, and the colour forecast for spring 2014 was almost identical to spring 2012... although it's perhaps not exciting, it does mean we can spend a little more time appreciating and wearing older collections like this lovely one from Derk Lam, while still remaining totally on trend. Have a fabulous weekend, V!

  2. Great collection!

  4. OMG those pinstripe flares are amazing! Those are totally what I would pick, and pair With my pinstripe blazer for stripey overload!

  5. Loving mixed prints right now, this collection is amazing!
