Video Memo to Derek Lam: Give Cathy a Signature Silhouette!

There was no shortage of commentary backstage at the Derek Lam show: Fabiola Beracasa and Lam discuss the art of balancing his eponymous line with his work for Tod's, Amanda Ross declares Lam's "classic" designs to be among her favorites, and Bergdorf buyers have bought Lam's lines in full force. But as well designed and accessible as Lam's work may be, ever-honest Times critic Cathy Horyn is still searching for something more.

Five Things We Liked on Sunday

Five Things
  • 1. At Michael Kors, we flipped for the pointillist Seurat-print caftan on Angela Lindvall.
  • 2. The light-gray, leopard-esque dot print on blouses, dresses, and even a scarf at Derek Lam. We'll take it. Also, the elegant satin robe over a sequined evening dress. Finally, a chance to call something "soigné."

Fashion Week Is All Fugged Up

Best of Fashion Week
We were such innocents a mere eight days ago. Times were much simpler then; we had hope in our hearts and an unfailing optimism that our job covering celebrities in Fashion Week's front rows would be like shooting fish in a barrel, minus the ricochet. Even though not as many famous faces showed up as we'd have liked, we managed to come out the other end a very happy, sated pair. After all, we love clothes, Champagne, and sandwiches, and we got a lot of all three this week. Here are some of the highlights and lowlights of our second stint covering the celebrity turnout at Bryant Park — and, yes, of the 37 shows we saw, we did like a lot of the clothes.

Zip It Good

zippers
It won’t be hard to slip into next season’s dresses with so many exposed zippers. Though his overall show got tepid reviews, Derek Lam was dead-on in incorporating visible zippers into most looks. Carlos Miele’s dark, ruched dresses came with a sexy zipper up the front. And Behnaz Sarafpour highlighted her external zippers all the more with bright yellow trim on an otherwise subdued gray dress. So come fall, remember to zip up.

Derek Lam Won't Judge ‘Project Runway’

Derek Lam
Derek Lam (the proud new designer for Tod's) showed at the Tunnel in Chelsea on Tuesday and kept with the season: belted silhouettes, high-waisted pants, and to-die-for double-breasted coats. Jocelyn Guest caught up with him for a quick chat on Project Runway and the rise of Asian designers at Fashion Week.

Ten Things We Liked on Tuesday

  • 1. The trouser trend. It marches on, and we're thrilled.
  • 2. Derek Lam's newly slick vibe, expressed in exposed zippers, stovepipe trousers, and a super-chic, minimalist palette.
  • 3. Also: props to the model who lost a heel and kept right on going, on one shoe and one tippy-toe. She barely missed a beat.

We Spot-Check Gordon Ramsay's Stink

We recently noted that the notoriously truculent Gordon Ramsay has finally pissed someone off with his new Gordon Ramsay at the London. His neighbors in the apartment building behind the restaurant have been complaining bitterly about the noise and smell produced by the restaurant's air exhausts, among other things. We decided to see for ourselves just how bad they really have it. Our correspondent, who shot the photograph above, was led into an apartment right across from an apparently unfiltered exhaust vent. "A steady, noticeable hum is apparent," he reports. "This becomes much louder when the windows are opened. I can definitely see how it would impact people living on that side of the building within a few floors of the vent." Then there's the smell. Shirley Lemmon, the residence manager, told our reporter that, "We know what they're having for dinner. Sometimes it's bacon, which I don't mind. I like bacon. But sometimes it's duck, and the smell is terrible." (Lemmon also claims that Ramsay's air-conditioning unit has been measured at 75 decibels. History's loudest rock concert — the Who at Leeds — peaked at 120 decibels.) Ramsay's people told us that "the hotel has addressed the problem and is working to resolve all issues." Something tells us they're not taking duck off the menu. Earlier: Gordon Ramsay Finally Pissing Someone Off
