New York Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Phillip Lim

When I said wearing Phillip Lim to his show made me feel confident, it was largely because his Spring offerings are abundantly amazing. Lim's eclecticism came out with an array of functional separates, flirty frocks, kooky accessories and experimental flourishes. Lim provided us a quote from musician Pedro Soler, "That very night, while removing his lavish costume, the bullfighter looked at his past and felt grateful for this suit that calls for a noble body and soul." Lim started the show with a smart white Spanish-esque jacket, but the clothes moved into a soulful and beautiful direction.Sharp pleats, ruffles and tailoring created a canvas for nuances such as big swingy fringe, sequins and jeweled collars. Little jackets, one in leather, were enticing. The zippered ruffled items were trippy, in a very good way. Metallic shoes, polka dot bags and Christmas bowed belts poked fun at fashion. My favorite look was this wavy sequin cropped top, with artsy necklace and loose utility pants (middle) — this one caught Leighton Meester front row center's eye, too. Great minds think alike.

For lots more Spring Lim,

I really think that Philip Lim, Richard Chai and Thakoon are the future of fashion... I expect them to have long careers.

I usually love Phillip Lim, especially his organic collection, but this collection was a little more hit and miss - I loved about 50% of it, but the other half was not my taste...
