But those kinds of details aren't the only things that will make this collection so attractive to his customers. Lam gives you a reason to add another peacoat to your closet by cutting it in a gorgeous smoky blue. And if you were of the mind that you had plenty of full-legged trousers, thank you very much, the clever two-tone pair in silk-rayon and technical twill that he showed with a gold lamé necktie blouse and a flannel blazer will have you reconsidering. Same goes for his jumpsuits, which feature the new away-from-the-body silhouette Phoebe Philo's been experimenting with. For evening, Lam played matchmaker, pairing a leather bodice with a breezy poplin long-to-the-floor skirt, or strapless stretch flannel with fluid silk jersey. The off-kilter combinations only added to the gowns' appealing ease.
