If anyone was prepped for yesterday’s snow, it was Derek Lam, who let it snow on his runway.

The fashion crowd trekked through the real deal to get to his show at Chinatown club Capitale, only to see faux flurries as the models paraded in tailored, serene looks: wool tweed dresses paired with leather trousers, silk blouses with skirts that had pleated chiffon on the sides, terra-cotta suede on front and back. There were kicky bits (fringed skirts, saddle bags). And fur -- fox, mink -- sorry, PETA. Not that we’ve seen them protesting this season. Perhaps the economy’s even forced them to cut back.
