Derek Lam Spring 2010 Collection: Plenty To Smile About

Sorting through photos of Derek Lam's Spring 2010 runway collection will put a smile on anyone's face. The clothes are fresh, feminine and fierce, but the handbags are the reason for the permanent grin etched on my face. Lam's handbags have evolved from adequate to amazing designs. Ever since Lam's design team began to focus in on the detailing of the bags, their entire collections have elevated themselves to join the designer handbag big leagues.

The 'Elsa' clutch is back and clad in one of my favorite colors ever - sky blue. The 'Penelope' satchel makes several appearances in the form of a black/white leather/ostrich interpretation as well as a gorgeous electric blue ostrich version that is pure perfection. The cute little 'Nadine' evening bag gets a python-clad makeover with an interesting coloring technique who's final product resembles tye-die without the hippie vibe. My absolute favorite bag has to be, without a doubt, the stunning and sublime 'Nadia' shoulder bag. This design is also done with the same tye-die python exterior as the 'Nadine', but the results are even more spectacular because of the bag's larger size. With bags like these to look forward to next spring, it's no wonder Derek Lam is responsible for my "happy face". Thanks, Derek. I really needed a good pick-me-up.

    Good to know that the Elsa will still be "in" next summer! Love the sky blue version. But that electric blue ostrich Penelope is my favorite!

    ITA. That Penelope is gorgeous. It's interesting how Lam chose ostrich for the satchels and python for the shoulder bags. Lam is starting to understand what finishes work best with which shapes.
