Derek Lam's Spring 2013 show started slowly, but by the time Joan Smalls closed the show in a burgundy laser-cut paillette dress, the collection was wide awake and full of energy. By the time a set of bright pencil skirts paired with perfectly slouched jersey pullovers had commanded their way down the runway, no doubt hundreds of editors had made mental notes of "things I must own." Lam has once again prescribed exactly we want to wear — easy sportswear with a twist. The collection started slow, with a cute, simple plaid dress in such a dowdy colour only a model should wear it. The "black, sun, and fatigue" colour continued for a few looks before things got interesting, notably the arrival of the perfect trench coat, followed shortly by a bright blue leather top and dress, and then things got really exciting: macramé done in ink, red ochre, tweed and leather, rendered into textural skirts and dresses. The kicker was in one particularly killer look: easy jersey pullovers, some quilted, some sleeveless, paired with just about the coolest pencil skirts around — think gold leather, multi-coloured macramé, or bright laiser-cut pailletes. This is the look that no doubt made a thousand mental notes —it was so effortlessly chic you can't help but want it in your closet.

  • Trends: Macramé, metallic, sporty, lingerie, leather.
  • Colours: Burgundy, purple, navy, cocoa, khaki, grey, metallic.
  • Key Piece: The macramé pencil skirts and jersey pullovers.
  • Accessories: Crocodile slingbacks and pumps.
  • Who Should Wear It: Fashion editors (ahem), and effortless girls like Zoe Saldana.
