Derek Lam RTW Fall 2010 / NYCFW Day-07

Derek Lam’s heading to the Wild Wild West. His muse, however, was Julie Christie in the Seventies film “McCabe & Mrs. Miller,” who played a British expat in the Robert Altman Western. In other words: cowgirl style done ultrapolished and with a decidedly European glaze. Lam’s only overt thematic nods, in fact, came in the form of fringe on an ethereal crepe de chine blouse cut in strips, and the occasional Navajo print or embroidery. Things started off clean and refined with a spare-yet-sharp moleskin coat with black leather sleeves before delving into a strong sportswear story, with cable-knit sweaters, georgette blouses, pleated kilts and the perfect boot-cut silk gazar trouser. The structured outerwear proved a high point. Here, leather inserts added a cool edge while precise lines displayed architectural restraint.
