New York Fashion Week, Spring 2008: Derek Lam


Derek Lam is always searching for the feminine ideal, and I think he may have hit the nail on the head with this collection (even if it was a little scatterbrained)! Ever one of my favorites, I have to say, he channeled a little bit of young Oscar de la Renta on this turn...

In fact, things were a little wild! Leopard print was spotted under a sharp 70s-inspired suit, scarfed around necks, covering a mackintosh, and wafting in the wind on a caftan minidress. There was also zebra print - one zebra dress even looked made-for-Posh (the fact that the model had cropped blonde hair and big sunnies on added to that effect).

Pea green, colorblocking, hippie chic florals, demure silk, zigzags...this collection was all over the place. Especially when it got to the glamour girl dresses. I wish you had more coherence on this one, Derek, but don't worry, you'll always be my Lam(b).
