3.1 Philip Lim - AW 11/12
Philip Lim sent a sportswear driven collection down the runway. This collection fused chic streetstyle with high fashion. The collection was full of accessible clothing for the fashionable girl. Sportswear, shirts, and pants took on a more athletic and casual style. These relaxed cuts were paired with luxe prints and fabrics which gave them their high fashion flare. Pops of greens and blues in the garments, shoes, and accessories broke up the heavy fabrics that dominate winter collections, taking the density away from the looks. Lim also matched silk jumpsuits and tops with leather sleeves instantly converting Spring/Summer must-haves into winter garments. They will instantly become a hot buy among consumers, however my favorite pieces of the show were his striped slouchy trousers and wet sheen t-shirts.
