Derek Lam Fall Winter Collection 2013/14 in New York
It's in a small room of the "sean kelly gallery," a renowned art gallery in manhattan, that derek lam presented his new collection. only 27 models for this new woman full of sensuality. he mixes strong materials like suede and leather which he softened through a play on pleats, collages and an invisible construction but very couture. the cape will definitely be the new winter coat according to derek lam himself. and monochrome dresses in black, white or burgundy draping elegantly for a designer who perfectly masters the material.

derek lam : i think we've seen so much leather that i felt like it needed to be warmed up and broken, all the patchworking to create surface interest, a lot of the fabrics it was kind of creating our own fabrics through these combinations.
a lot of the fabrics are bonded, so they're still fluid and they have this great movement but there is still a guts to it which i think creates that very clean modern line.
besides the glamour of a cape, but just the functionality of a cape with a shorter, longer, it's a new jacket i think.
