Fashion Week 2007. Derek Lam Has All the Right Angles . Second City Style Fashion Blog

February 6, 2007 • New York Fashion Week Fall '07

He had me when I saw the shoulder pads. Derek Lam brings an interesting angle to his fall show emphasizing the contrast between hard edges and soft, tactile fabrics. His soft sweaters, draping dresses, and flirty skirts compliment the sharp corners of his trenches, topcoats and oversized blazers.

Color Palette: Black, white, cream, charcoal, shiny silver and two solid ink dresses with patent leather belts. Jersey and silk dresses and blouses drape in all the right places while thick solid black geometric lines gave it balance. White leather pants have a similar fascination with the straight line (as well as triangles on the inside knee of both legs). Wool can be seen in trenches and sweaters alike.

Key Looks: Lam certainly gave the spotlight to his coats, as well as to short, flirty feminine skirts (even in charcoal they don’t lose their charm). But, again, the collection spends a lot of time negotiatiing balance between the hard and the soft, the angular and the floating, and the curve and the line.
