3.1 Phillip Lim is Effortless Chic


Credit: Refinery 29



Phillip Lim is the master of contorting proportion into simple shapes, embellishing the garments with seemingly simple additions, and calling it the day with luxurious fabric. He creates wonders with his effortless style. In fact, you will never see a 3.1 Phillip Lim piece that is elaborately embellished or designed–a factor that attracts the public to him. However, you’ll see or wear sleek–even urban-like clothing that becomes stylish purely on how you choose to accompany it. (That is really a factor for anything–yet more strict on Lim.) Thus an amazing talent!

Phillip Lim’s 3.1 Phillip Lim Autumn/Winter 2011 collection was one that continued to stay true to itself. In essence, a simplistic, slick collection was produced. Whereas all of this was welcomed with what the International Herald Tribune calls, “Dynamic, utilitarian sportswear.” Two-toning with different fabric textures and rich, cool colors were also used in a hard-core manner. The second runway look would be proof of this. A two-toned simplistic shirt accompanied with loose, white pants was an example of the used technique–might I add that it was chic. I also adored the one-suit pieces–especially a taupe number accented with a short taupe scarf. (It was amazingly transformed into a sophisticated piece with the right tailoring.) Equally important as the clothing themselves, the collection also triggered imagery. While viewing the collection, predictions of high-street style icons photographed tapping at their phones looking über chic in their 3.1 Phillip Lim ensembles encrusted the mind. In fact, it was almost impossible not to envision even yourself in at least one runway look; every last runway look was a potential outfit. Refinery 29 humorously tells us, “Mr. Lim, how do we love thee … oh, let us count the outfits.” Therefore making 3.1 Phillip Lim to be treasured in our future autumn season.

It was cleverly charming, young, and simply stylish–and yes I “do love thee”!

    If you took the first ladies pants put it on the second and the fourth lady you would have a good matching combination. Red or green pants do not combine together.
