fall collections, new york: 3.1 by phillip lim

by Jeremy Danté

architectural design lines were seen throughout the FW11 3.1 by phillip lim womenswear collection.  with sleek style & refined concepts, modern looks with warmly toned leather are contrasted to fall’s most desired color- blue. neutral earth tones were seen alongside beautiful use of green, with wool providing more structure for the collections coats. slight use of print was seen as a focus on tied necklines were seen throughout. one aspect of the 3.1 collections i greatly admire is construction; it’s clean through cut & beautifully simple. phillip lim has become a master of womenswear, readily demonstrating how to balance masculine form & feminine charm. this season, we see sharp tailoring & defined style- phillip lim is one of my favorites in america. a great follow-up from last season & a consistent delivery of a developed signature.
