You find out awesomely interesting stuff, like the fact that model Hanne Gaby Odiele is Derek Lam's muse?
I think this type of relationship is so mysterious and wonderful, and as unexplainable as love. It's a type of love, after all. The designer, the artist, ''falls in love" and proceeds to show it by making his art an offering to the muse's beauty and/or personality. It's fascinating to find out, and I love discovering such (sometimes) odd pairings.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing and it's brought me this interesting little tidbit of information, about the Hanne-Lam duo, haha. Hanne was, in fact, the inspiration for an entire line concocted by the designer, called 10 Crosby and not only did she model for the lookbook, she helped style the looks too.
Check it out, it's pretty magical, methinks.
The clothes are, in my opinion, ultra-wearable but also super chic and edgy-looking. They have that je-ne-sais-quoi that makes them irresistible.
