Derek Lam’s fashions are generally elegant and sophisticated. So it was great to see him break out the colors and the fun in his Spring 2010 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. There was no general color palette or underlying theme. It was like a carnival of colors and silhouettes — definitely eye-catching and certainly fitting for spring. Some of the fashions had a retro 70s flavor, but it was much more than that.

The show finished up with what some were calling “bodysuits” but they were more like a blouson tops attached to swimsuit bottoms.

Here are just a few of my favorites from the Derek Lam Spring 2010 show at New York Fashion Week.
