The complete Derek Lam for Kohl's lookbook is here, and it is so good! Can you believe this is Kohl's?! Coming April 5th, we'll have our choice of apparel and swimwear from the acclaimed designer priced at just $36 to $88. Lam's inspiration for these spring must-haves was the city of Rio de Janeiro, and you can see it plays out in the prints, styles and details. My favorite two pieces are the striped dresses (see below) but there's so much good stuff going on here. It's modern and cool but has a certain warmth to it, and all the pieces seem very wearable. I've gotten to preview a few pieces in person (here) and think the quality is good and reflects the pricepoints. I don't plan on paying full price either. The debut DesigNation designer's collection, Narciso Rodriguez, made it to the clearance racks at the two Kohl's stores near me so I'm not worried.
