Instead of the typical flashy runway setting, Derek Lam opted for a more intimate feel for his S/S 17 collection. With a curated assortment of guests, Lam presented each look one by one at the The Greenwich Hotel penthouse during New York Fashion Week. As the models walked out, he was able to describe each look in detail, so there was nothing much left up to interpretation. We imagine this is what a presentation used to be like back in the day, before fashion became a major production, and to be honest, we kind of love the concept. Imagine how much more attached you would be to this collection if you were a able to hear Lam himself point out to you the details you might have otherwise missed. For fashion lovers, that would be a dream come true.
