Backstage beauty report - Derek Lam SS 2013.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Known by his sporty luxury brand Derek Lam covered all of the season's trends in his show, from madras plaids to leather skirts and dresses with my favorite being the metallic gold leather skirt worn with silk cord top totally cool, modern and effortless!

In terms of make up, at Derek Lam, Tom Pecheux, creative makeup director for Estée Lauder, cooperating with Lam now for sixth consecutive season, was aiming for a “delicate, slightly romantic, aqua 3-D look." in which you just want to jump into! - as he put it.

Inspired by vacation in France and colors of silver and transparent reflection of the river he vacationed by, Tom decided to do transparent, colored and feminine look for the eyes.

Jin Soon Choi for Estée Lauder painted fingers and toes with Pure Color Nail Lacquer in So Vain, a nude shade with a hint of shimmer. “It goes with everything — any skin tone, any outfit,” she said. “It’s the perfect neutral.”

Derek Lam said that every Spring and Summer women tell him that they want the ease with dressing and make up, they just want to put it on and go, so this is what he had in mind while putting together this collection.

I really liked how comfortable and chic these booties looked!

Lam used leather and skins because they have structure but their still sensual and have amazing body. He wanted to break the expectations of white and pastels for Spring collections and he introduced new, warm but energetic color pallet. Derek said that he didn't want to use just sequence and do traditional evening wear but he wanted something very current, very "of this moment" so he used technology to create a new evening look.

Here are some of my other favorite pieces (notice the sweater and leather dress trends transferring from this Fall in lighter version to the Spring 2013.).

Bellow you can see the full show - the end result of this exhausting but exciting backstage prep.

How do you like this romantic, aqua and natural beauty trend ladies?
