3.1 Phillip Lim RTW
New York Fashion Week
3.1 Phillip Lim dresses the classic New Yorker woman, and this collection is what happens when that woman meets SoCal. The sturctered pieces are an obvious staple this woman will never stop wearing, but she's now open to the idea of ruffled hems, easy patterns, and laid back silhouettes, perfect for exploring the Cali desert and being swept away by the Cali beaches.
An obvious collection influenced by the rise of Kendall and Gigi, as who else is responsible for making bikini tops acceptable to pass for real tops (when styled correctly). It's so risqué and yet so chic (but again, styling is everything).
I am loving the layering in this collection - spring layering always looks so fresh and fun in comparison to fall/winter layering. I am also loving the easy floral prints embroidered onto cool scuba-like pieces, thus perfecting a work-to-beach vibe I think we all need. xx
