Derek Lam Fall 2012 - NYFW

The show started with monochromatic, print separates and enhanced, contrast-collar dresses. Brigitte Bardot look-alikes strutted down the runway sporting beehive 60's hair.
Lam paired sensual knitwear with wearable wide-leg trousers, and high-sheen leather tops with hemmed at the knee skirts.  He experimented with a brilliant array of fabrics, from woven cashmere to printed silks and glossy leather.  True to form, his collection thus far appeared luxurious but moderately informal.
In a surprising finale, Lam gave us some unexpected femininity and fluidity – an unconventional twist for the designer known for his contemporary, often futuristic fashions.  Models like Josephine Skriver, Daria Strokous and Katryn Kruger took the final walk through a maze of white frames in floor length, quixotic, motion-packed silk gowns and skirts paired with cable-knit cashmere sweaters in a perfect balance of textures and cause.
