menswear collections: 3.1 phillip lim, fall

by Jeremy Danté

with a projected revenue of 60 million USD for 2011, CFDA award winning designer, phillip lim presents an inspiringly strong menswear collection for the FW11 menswear show season. the refined approach to modern classical design is showcased extremely well in the collection as a palette of black, white, grey & neutral with slices of green & orange for contrast. wool & leather were used meticulously with beautiful use of layering & modern style. classical elements are seen in the construction of each piece as leather sleeves were attached to leather coats to allow a greater feeling of design progression. a clean approach to menswear & i really love how sharp & structured the designs of phillip lim are, with both menswear & womenswear.
