Derek Lam's Amazing Fall

Whoa. The collection opened with a dusty clay coloured jacket fastened with two small buttons; one at the waist and one at the neck. The sleeves hit the elbow and a dark leather looking sleeve emerged and continued to the wrist. Impressive.

There was a wild west theme but it was mostly kept to a bare minimum and not too kitsch. Cowboy themes have a tendency to look goofy and Lam could’ve done away with about half of this collection because the first 20 looks were perfect. Boot-cut pants looked fresh, jackets with leather inserts, a sexy leather and silk pleated skirt…arrrgh there were so many fantastic pieces!

I hope it was coincidental but it had whiffs of Celine’s Spring collection. It was just the caramel leather and minimalist pieces that did it for me.
