Backstage: at Derek Lam fall 2012 runway show at NYFW.

A lot of leather detailing could be found on the sleeves and trim of many of the pieces and in the form of vests and skirts which gave a rougher edge to the delicate winter white fabrics and proper ladylike collars. Shift dresses in youthful delicate floral patterns and pea coats gave a distinct nod to the 50s and 60s showing a retro yet modern woman. Having seen it featured in many collections deep red hues have become a clear color trend emerging for next fall and I must say as a blonde I am very happy about that. Another trend that has been seen thus far during this season’s shows were slouchy loose fitting trousers. The show was rounded out with some ultra chic, simple monochrome drop waisted dresses with floor dusting skirts made of light sheer fabrics. Overall the collection was a bit sporty yet feminine and very wearable.
One thing I was not a fan of? Many of the model’s hair fell flat giving more of a “greasy rolled out of bed” look which complimented the “I forgot to wash my face” makeup.
