NEW YORK — Derek Lam will expand his contemporary accessories offering with a footwear collection for 10 Crosby Derek Lam.
Following the launch of bags for spring, the designer will introduce the line’s first shoe collection today for the pre-fall season though a licensing agreement with Schwartz and Benjamin (the firm will also produce footwear for Lam’s main collection starting with the spring season). Last month, former parent company Labelux sold Derek Lam International LLC back to its founders — Lam and chief executive officer Jan-Hendrik Schlottmann — after acquiring a majority stake in the company in 2008.
The 24-style 10 Crosby Derek Lam footwear collection was conceptualized with the idea of linear and diagonal colorblocking in mind — and heavily influenced by French footwear designer Maud Frizon’s prints and Charles Jourdan’s advertising campaigns from the Seventies. Retail prices will range from $295 to $395, with knee high boots going up to $575.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
