The Derek Lam show, themed “The Myth of the West” and staged at Capitale’s impressive ballroom, brought some much needed energy to fashion week—a real show with an invigorating soundtrack and snow falling from the ceiling. Black and caramel colors dominated the runway, and though the silhouettes were decidedly western in influence, they still managed to feel very city. As a whole, the collection was the perfect example of chic winter dressing.
Color palette: Caramel, black, and cream with shots of terracotta.
Standout accessories: Fringe belts, ram’s head accents, felt cowboy hats.
Favorite pieces: An impressive shearling coat, jackets with leather sleeves, and a pleated black leather skirt.
