>> The Japanese editors who turn up to Pitti Uomo in Florence every year — especially as snapped by Scott Schuman — were the starting point for Derek Lam's Pre-Fall 2012 collection. "In Japan, they call them fashion nerds, but to me they’re not nerdy. They’re fabulous," Lam explained. And so, coats, trousers, tops, and sheaths were sharply-tailored and done up in gorgeous Glen plaid, herringbone, and jacquard denim. But it wasn't all borrowed-from-the-boys: Lam also worked lingerie-inspired gowns, bandana-print frocks, and fluted skirts into the mix.
