GMA: Derek Lam Kohl’s Fashion Line

From dressing red carpets to outfitting Michelle Obama, Derek Lam is a force in fashion. He knows flattering silhouettes and never skimps on the color. His usually expensive looks are being toned down in price for Design Nation at Kohl’s. The line launches April 5, but GMA had the inside access.

Flirty denim dress, $70: While I think $70 is way too much for a denim dress, it is at least cute to look at. Buttons go down the front and it has a conservative neckline. It would be better priced around $50, but it is designer.

Fitted boatneck dress, $70: This dress really is worth $70. The look is polished for work and still has the flirt and color for a night out. Lam loved the bold graphic of this dress.

Maxi dress, $88: For a nice designer maxi, $88 is not bad. The dress’ print was inspired by graffiti. It looks like a gorgeous waterfall. Lam said the key to a maxi is to pair it with the right heels. Height doesn’t matter.

Tunic, pants, shoes, $102: Again, a little pricey for the look. The tunic is darling and would wear great with shorts, a skirt or pants. The print is eye catching and could translate to a day at the office or a day on the beach. The pants he styled it with were electric blue, nice but a little boring.
