Joh. A. Benckiser, LABELUX Group
In 2002, Lam stuck out on his own business; with business partner Jan-Hendrik Schlottmann, he debuted his eponymous line at Olympus Fashion Weekï¿½and buyers from Barneyï¿½s and Bergdorf Goodman placed orders almost immediately.
He debuted at the New York Fashion Week in September 2003, for the Spring/Summer 2004 collections.
Pretty, girly fabrics backed by clean, crisp silhouettes. Signature pieces include raw silk sheath dresses with plunging necklines, wide-leg trousers in various wools and dainty cashmere pea coats cinched with stiff silk belts.
