Derek Lam’s most recent endeavor, his diffusion line 10 Crosby, reflects everything the designer loves—and what we love about his designs. A masterful mélange of his favorite fabrics, shapes and colors, the collection offers an easy and more relaxed take on Derek’s usual aesthetic—think wide-leg pants, drapey jackets and slouchy, feminine fits (and just in time for getaway season).
Earlier this month, Barneys New York hosted a cocktail event to toast the designer’s new line. After guests mingled and perused the racks on the CO-OP floor at the Madison Avenue flagship, Amanda Brooks sat down with Derek and got down to business.
During the interview, the designer revealed everything from his love for the location of his downtown Nolita headquarters to why he decided to create the line to how he found inspiration during his cigarette breaks. To get a sneak peek, check out this exclusive video below.
