fall collections, new york: 3.1 phillip lim
by Jeremy Danté
the phillip lim 3.1 fall collection produced a more gentle aspect of fall fashion. while other collections boated with metallics, neons & overdramatized black palettes, lim opts for soft blue with hushed pinks & flowing neutrals. another collection paying close attention to the presentation of textile, i enjoyed the relaxed silouettes within this set. ankle boots & tassled open toes pranced down the runway & one particular shoe that was pure devastation was the thigh high satin boot in look no.13 – get in to it. or even the thigh high suede pair with the double buckled straps from look no. 15, so dope. seemingly representing the transition of fall to winter, i loved the soft take amidst all the depth & overindulgent designs of some of the other collections. the lim collections sits between overdone opulence & new school minimalism. a solid collection for the fall season, im very excited to see the response to these garments editorially as well as commercially.
