We're more than willing to stash away a bit of our paychecks to put a little Derek Lam in our closets. Make that 10 Crosby, too. But what we most admire about Lam is that he's a designer who's available for everyone. Case meets point with his upcoming collaboration with DesigNation for Kohl's. Working in the same feminine-cool vibe of his namesake line, the newest collection is a summery mix of swimwear, printed tailored pieces, and throw-'em-on-and-look-amazing dresses.

Citing Rio de Janeiro as his inspiration, the spring collection doesn't skimp on any flavor. It's chock-full of vibrant colors and loose-fit - but sexy - cuts, all priced from $36 to $88. And playing up some of the must-try trends for balmy, beachy days ahead (cutout swimsuits, knee-length shorts, and dressy jumpsuits, we've got our eyes on you!), the mini collection for the mass retailer exceeds all expectations. Can't wait to purchase? Well...you'll have to - the collection will be available April 5. Let the wish list-making commence!
