Fashion Week Notebook | Derek Lam

September 23rd, 2005

Key Takeaways: While Lam is considered one of fashion’s fastest-rising stars, we were disappointed with this boring collection. We expected to see something new and exciting, and what we got was a lot of childlike dresses in dowdy shapes.

Color Palette: Lam’s collection was focused on white, with black and neutrals as supporting colors.

Silhouettes: Babydoll dresses and shift dresses. We didn’t know what to think about the Overgrown-Easter-Sunday-Dress look.

Accessories Report: Our favorite accessory was the fresh-faced makeup seen on Lam’s runway models. They possessed a dewy, youthful look.

What’s Wearable: Lam’s fortuny pleasts–they were one of the few highlights of this collection.

What’s Not Wearable: Babydoll dresses. We don’t want to revisit the early nineties.
