The RTW fall collection I am so ready to wear!

All I can say is may I kneel before you...  Phillip Lim is such a creative genius!  His Pre-Fall 2013 collection filled my list of what I will be coveting (and adding to my wardrobe) over the coming months and the Fall 2013 RTW collection re-emphasized my need to save for the on-slaught of must have pieces that will follow thereafter.

I thoroughly enjoy Lim's interpretations of mixing and matching. His unique aesthetic vision (especially in his recent collections) really resonates with me.  But I also admire his designs because they are able to be easily interspersed with even the most basic of wardrobes and a reasonable portion of his collections fall within an affordable pricing point.  It's nice to see realism and wearability being incorporated as important aspects of a collection.  I would say with Lim, you get real bang for you buck. 

This is a collection that contrasts texture and silhouettes, and reigns supreme with layering. The voluminous coats, the bevy of tailored separates and biker-style blazers contrasted with stamped neoprene, leather, lush wool and structured over-sized pieces makes this a collection that will (I'm sure), be adopted by many with style cred.  Don't even get me started on those over-the-knee boots!  Lim proves that it's possible to be modern, ladylike(ish) and exert a tough girl rebellious streak all at once.  Sign me up!

You must forgive me for the excess images.  I found it extremely difficult to narrow down my favourite looks. I'm sure you will understand why.  Now... some 3.1 Phillip Lim shots to wet your appetite.

  6. No need to apologize for the excessive images...there's so much to love about this collection!! I don't think I could narrow it down to a few favourites either. I could easily see myself wearing alot of these pieces but my wallet will probably only allow for a couple!lol!
    I love that this collection is a bit feminine but still edgy, tough and sexy!

    xo,
