Phillip Lim Earned a Black Belt in Fashion
Typically, it's largely the accessories that have our eyes fixed on the 3.1 Phillip Lim runway, but for Spring 2015, the label had other shapes in mind. Far from quirky clutches and mega boots, impeccably tailored silhouettes rocked the runway.
Shapely separates flowed with an ease reserved for the type of laid-back women who flock to Lim. Yes, there were peplums and crop tops at play, but the real standouts were puzzle piece blazers and curved-edge shells. Influenced by karate attire, the designs were most striking in monochromatic white, black, and navy. That inspiration brought our focus back around to accessories, which relied heavily on the sort of obis that are traditionally worn to kick butt in martial arts. Thankfully, you won't actually need to earn your belt to do the same in these clothes.
