As a Chinese-American designer who grew up in San Francisco, Derek Lam is a master in bringing together an array of influences. Best known for his feminine designs that also have a clean, crisp edge, Lam’s signature pieces ooze an understated sensual luxury.
With Derek Lam 10 Crosby, the beloved American designer puts a contemporary spin on his signature relaxed-elegant aesthetic. Launched in 2011 and named after the address of Lam’s former headquarters, the spinoff label appeals to the modern woman’s need for elevated, versatile staples. Standouts include simple-yet-unexpected silhouettes, like boxy poplin tops, open-back cashmere sweaters, and cinched-waist shirtdresses—pieces that transition seamlessly from workweek to weekend and from day to night.
