Since debuting his line of modernized American sportswear in 2003, Parsons graduate and Michael Kors protégé Derek Lam has scored three CDFA awards and opened his first flagship store. Crafted by playful and innovative Tokyo architect group SANAA (which won the prestigious Pritzker Prize in 2010), the stunning SoHo shop has a smooth concrete floor and clear acrylic walls that curve and weave between white brick walls and bright, well-tailored, modern women's wear.
