|Derek Lam or Kohl's|
Lam is the second designer to join Koh's DesignNation collaboration. He joins a growing number of upscale designers with fashions in major department stores, including Missoni and Jason Wu for Target, as designers whose luxury clothing ranges in the thousands bring their upscale fashions to a broader audience at lower prices.
Kohl's is trying to step up their fashion game -- and Lam is a good way to start, as the retailer has brought in designs by Jennifer Lopez and others in recent years. Lam's collection at Kohl's ranges from $36 to $98 and will be available April 5. Like most designer collabos, Lam's collection will be limited edition and available or a limited time.
Lam has said his fashions were inspired by Brazil, with colorful abstracts and bright pairings. To be honest, I'd wear some things in his collection but others, not so much, as they looked a bit plain and dowdy.
Not quite what I'd expect from Lam. A sundress looked plain Jane and a $70+ price tag. Did he design a dress just to meet the lower price point?
