3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-Fall 2012
In a word, Lim’s collection was rich. But it was modern. It was like looking through the window of a 21st century country club, infused with sportswear practicality and references to the 1970s. It’s perfection.And when I thought there was a clear direction, there is the undercurrent of school-girl, with clean skirt lines and those special briefcases. It continues with proportions; the hemlines are a bit short, just a little juvenile, while one the leather jackets rides the line of school boy sizing.
