Phillip Lim Menswear

Phillip Lim had his first stand-alone menswear collection at the Penn Hotel Ballroom yesterday and Im glad I was able to make it on time. I forgot that 32nd started on Seventh Avenue..  I felt so lost standing on Eighth Ave between 31 and 33rd streets.

The collection had an overall equestrian/militant vibe, full with high strapped boots, structured outerwear, harness belts and hardcore falconry/military gloves.

I’m definitely feeling the aristocracy/Old European look of this collection. My friends know that I am a sucker for outerwear and love the fact that minimal changes in construction can make all the difference. It was great to see a cape come down the runway but I wasnt too crazy about the print.. what do you think?

The leather portfolio made it onto the runway, as did many other bags. I got a schoolboy vibe from the leather backpack/rucksacks as well. These pieces added more dimension to the collection.

Lim also collaborated with IWC. Although I didnt spot them on the runway at the time, gq.com has great close-ups of the timepieces, which are divine.

Sunglasses were featured on the runway as well. The collection had a clear vision and was loaded with pieces that were made for the sales floor. The collection seemed to be disconnected from his previous romantic and subtle seasons but there was a focused story and character in this collection.
