>> Phillip Lim showed a modern collection filled with desert hues and new cuts for Pre-Fall 2011. “I was interested in creating interesting profiles,” said Lim. Also a focus of the collection? Pieces that can be worn more than one way: jersey-chiffon knits and a rabbit fur coat are reversible, a gray wool overcoat has a detachable collar, wrap-front trousers have flaps that can be worn hanging down for a more undone look, and the coats have straps at the armholes to allow them to be worn slung over the shoulders — and stay in place. The collection, which was loosely inspired by late British writer and cartographer Freya Stark, also featured Lim's newest creation: a textile consisting of cotton woven with abaca, a fibrous plant from the Philippines.
