His line is not even two years old yet, but Phillip Lim just keeps going and going - not to mention you all voted him the FabSugar Designer of the Year last year! His first boutique opened last week on Mercer Street in New York, and he's got a plethora of other side projects in the works, including a collection for Birkenstock's fashion-forward line, Tatami.
"I've always been obsessed with Birkenstocks," he told The Fashion Informer. "My goal with this is to introduce... a series of urban, oh-so-cool old-school, but new hippie-chic sandals."
Sounds promising! I can't wait until September, when the line will be unveiled at his 3.1 Phillip Lim show. It is supposed to be carried at his new Mercer Street store, as well as at select Birkenstock retailers in Asia, Europe, and a few American markets, including in New York and L.A.
