Derek Lam Debuts His Kohl’s Spring 2013 Capsule Collection Inspired By Rio

Submitted by on March 1, 2013 – 11:20 amNo Comment

When high-end designers create low-end (aka budget-friendly!) collections for the masses, it’s a win-win situation for all involved.

Enter Derek Lam, the second designer booked to create an exclusive Spring 2013 line for Kohl‘s designer series DesigNation “where the sidewalk leads to the beach and the jungle meets the city.” Inspired for the jetset crowd, the collection draws from Rio De Janeiro’s fusion of urban and jungle, past and present.

“I’m always looking to the past for inspiration but also trying to interpret it for contemporary life,” Lam explains. “I think Rio is a perfect example of that.”

Described as “sophisticated and casual,” Derek Lam’s designs transition seamlessly from beach to cafe; swimwear is daywear, and day blends beautifully into night. With this collection, Lam reflects the easygoing nature and unselfconscious sensuality of Rio and makes it a part of everyday life.

Ranging in price from $36 to $88, the collection of swimwear and airy summer-friendly fabrics will be available on Kohls.com and in Kohl’s stores beginning April 5. Check out the looks below. Are you inspired to take a trip to Rio?
