Derek Lam has said he’d never do a collaboration unless it was “something new” which led to his experimental Derek Lam for eBay project last winter. Being picky must have worked out well for him, exposure-wise, because he’s doing it again. This time, Derek Lam for Kohl’s DesigNation is on the horizon. Launching this April, the line, filled with swimwear and women’s apparel, will be priced between $36 and $98, and, here’s the something new: it will be inspired by his recent trip to Brazil. (That said, we’ll be expecting a string bikini or two!) As all of Kohl’s DesigNation collabs are intended to be inspired by designers’ trips around the world, we guess this fit the criteria for Lam. In other news, if you haven’t heard, Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl’s DesigNation, will hit November 7, and Rodriguez will use Istanbul as his muse.
