Sidewalk Sophistication at 10 Crosby by Derek Lam

New York: For Pre Fall 2015, vice president of design, Liz Giardina was inspired by a Brazilian artist who specialized in wood prints in the 1950s and 60s, which you can see translated throughout the collection in the bold oversized geometric patterns. The designs evoked a slightly 70’s feel with belted coats, jackets, and playsuits, with slinky slip dresses that were held up by delicate necklaces. Footwear and handbags created bold contrasts whether in neutrals, metallics, or bright pops, increasing focus on the expansion of this portion of the collection.-Jaclyn Jones
