Derek Lam: Full of Architectural Classics

As usual Saks Fifth Avenue favorite, Derek Lam's collection for Spring 2012 was architecturally stunning with sleek silhouettes complimented by an awesome color-palette. Fiery coral lives. A waffle-striped knit sweater and skirt set was glorifyingly slm-fitting. Lam paired white eyelet shifts with smart short-sleeved jackets and he used a disco treatment on a selection of shiny, skirts. The marine-peppermint kaleidoscope print on a sequence of dresses and skirts sang a happy song down the runway. And deep V's added a sexy wow factor on the back of cocktail dresses. Finally a coral jumpsuit was an amazing way to end a deliriously sophisticated spring in to summer grouping. We loved it.

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
