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.
