New York Fashion Week, Spring 2008: 3.1 Phillip Lim
On a quiet Sunday models circled a sloped runway, showing the latest offerings from Phillip Lim. The aesthetic was consummately Lim, which is partly what earns him such popularity: classic, wearable, colorful, with a twist of fashion-forward.
I always love his attention to detail. One quick glance at the accessories confirms how meticulous his eye is for the small things; pearls mounted on black braid to form a necklace joined with hardware, round-toed heels with eyelet detailing, and the result of his Birkenstock collaboration all made appearances. A LBD with fringe neckline and arm holes, a navy blue tuxedo jacket, and a red leather skirt already have spots on my Spring Most Wanted list.
Keep 'em coming, Phillip, and Marc Jacobs will have quite the contender...
