Derek Lam’s presentation for Resort 2013 is a tasteful display of city dressing with only the tiniest hint of “resort” per se. The latter comes in the form of a blown-up giraffe print in black and white that looks more Michael Kors than Lam but is attractive nonetheless. A powder blue cropped jacket with safari pockets at the chest was a standout, as was a sleeveless crimson shirtdress, its full skirt and nipped waist tailored perfectly. The last few looks in the collection moved away from rigid silhouettes into softly draped blouson dresses with asymmetrically placed front closures. While not the most innovative or trend-setting collection, there was still plenty to like. -RS (Images via
