Last of Bryant Park, 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Posted in fashion week., new york city. by modman on February 20, 2010

Autumn in Phillip Lim’s world was very much about the outerwear. Outerwear and pants, although there were out-of-place looks here and there. The suede flare on the first pant and the high-waisted/wide bottomed trousers that spotted the show were the stars of this collection for me (after outerwear of course). Lim used the same wide plaid in this collection that he used in his menswear, which was a nice crossover. I thought the best use of the material was in the shorts, look two. The third and fourth looks seemed inspired from his menswear collection in that they evoke a sense of militancy. The use of crisscross overall action and the quilted leather/bulletproof vest against embellished top and the soft flow of the dress are extremely thought-provoking. Hard vs. light, masculinity vs. femininity.. the never-ending battle in art, design.. life basically. Lastly, the outerwear. Must I go into detail?
