Photos From 2010 Derek Lam Spring Collection at New York Fashion Week

2010 Spring New York Fashion Week: Derek Lam

Imagination. It's nice to see some imagination. Optimism. Fun. Stars. Derek Lam delivered a highly entertaining collection — you didn't know what to expect next. Carnival colors mixed with womanly separates, all with a '40s flair. Though lovely, this collection left me wondering one thing: where are the gowns? Lam chose to finish his runway lineup with several draped one-pieces. A few fun printed cocktail dresses graced the runway — it was all about legs, legs, legs.
Americana-inspired, a star print stole the spotlight, as did as this gold hologram sequined blouse and skirt (looks like a dress, huh?). Teensy jackets, wrap skirts, and corseted dresses, in luxe suede and double crepe, will no doubt prove to be popular. Accessories were equally fun: star-shaped hoop Dean Harris earrings, wraparound belts (one model forgot hers), mini duffel bags, and safari sandals. Some may argue this collection was incoherent, I think that was the intention: unorganized glamour.
