Finally able to take a proper vacation, Derek Lam recently traveled from Bhutan to Phuket, Thailand and returned with inspiration for his resort collection. Still, he added an Americana twist to much of it, which turned up in such looks as a stretch denim tunic paired with hemp shorts and a woven belt. Chevron tweed jackets, a basket-weave dress, an embroidered ikat frock and a patchwork tank and matching trousers all had an easy-chic aesthetic. Lam also hit the beaches during his trip, so the second half of his lineup worked a retro scuba feel (which is proving to be one of the season’s biggest trends) with a wetsuit-like top and skirt, as well as breezy scarf dresses in prints inspired by traditional Buddhist patterns.
