Friday Favorites, Derek Lam

LAM_0079

Derek Lam for this time. A collection inspired by the 70ties. Designers in general seem to get a lot of inspiration from the 70ties these past few seasons. What made me want to pick this look for this week? I’ll start from the bottom: the wide camel crepe pants were probably the main reason. The fact that they left out the belt on purpose makes me love it. Less is more, as they say. They are the pants you would put in the category ‘Parisian fashion’. This simple blouse almost had to be white. Guess the stylists wanted to be on the safe side, well done. Last but not least, the sunnies. Round frame sunglasses are the trendiest ! He actually shares this opinion with a few designers. Here some others:

It hasn’t been my first outfit post in these Max Mara pants. But I’m sure you know the feeling after you’ve done something and suddenly you know you should have done it the other way! That’s how I felt. But I think that in fashion it’s not about having the newest pieces that just went straight from the runway to the stores. It’s more about reinventing and mix-matching differently than the day before. And let’s be honest, who has got the money for these expensive pieces or simply to get new stuff every day? Surely not a student like me.. I felt like putting a white top together with my Max Mara lovies which makes the look softer than with the peachy blouse I put on in Rome (last look here).
