Fall 2009 Fashion Week: Derek Lam

There was no missing the fur trend for Fall ’09 in Derek Lam’s collection.  Whether you are for or against, fur will be seen walking off the runway this fall.  While these pieces were memorable, we’re going to discuss the styles we like for your office.  There were quite a few and we’re sorry we didn’t get to this collection earlier in the week.  The collection hit the runway in Bryant Park this past Tuesday in shades of desert sand and neutral bliss.  Jersey dresses clung to the models form without coming away to revealing.  Jackets we’re exquisite and skinny black pants were teamed with strappy woven sandals.

Steel these runway looks for the office with Derek Lam’s spring collection at Shopbop.com.  The cut-away leather jacket needs no explanation.  Take this metallic tweed peg skirt from business casual with a black sweater to business professional with an ivory blouse and one button jacket.  The pointed toe pumps are approved for either look.

If you have a more casual office try pairing an anorak with skinny jeans and spiked heeled oxfords.

    This does NOT appear to be a good season for PETA activists. There was so much fur and leather on the runway, it looked like a cross between an episode of Dynasty and a Def Lepperd concert!

    I loved it, though. Will definitely rock the leather and (faux) fur this fall. Just have to figure out how to make it a bit more office appropriate…
