Color Palette: Neutrals with splashes of spring green, sunflower yellow, sky blue, and a rich, warm purple.
Silhouettes: Silhouettes tended to be more fitted on top and loose on the bottom–or vice versa. Lam showed a host of tailored tops and voluminous skirts–both tulip skirt shapes and the run-of-the-mill full skirt. He also presented a number of oversized jackets/capes over slim, tailored silhouettes to balance them out.
Accessories Report: Chain necklaces and chain bag handles. Belts were rather thick and sat at the natural waistline.
What’s Wearable: Lam accomplished the formidable feat of designing an interesting, wearable collection–we were hard pressed to find extremely unwearable looks. Our favorites? A long babydoll shirt paired with a suit jacket, pants, and short gloves…and fur (skip the fur, make Trisha happy)–shown above. We also appreciated the black asymmetric capelet paired with a bright yellow ruffled shirt, long gloves, and skinny pants.
What’s Not Wearable: One blousy white halter dress wasn’t particularly flattering, even on the model’s thin frame. The stark contrast of the thick black belt didn’t do her any favors either.
