3.1 Phillip Lim SS11
By Noelia de la Cruz, September 29th, 2010
Subtle hints of Middle Eastern and Medieval pattern and dress appear in Philip Lim’s Spring 2011 collection—and we’re loving it. Paisley-embroidered suede pants paired with a suede zipper-down gilet is a bold move. Layer the ensemble with a beige trench coat and you’ve got an enchanting casual men’s outfit. In addition to suede, lambskin and silk also generate most of the men’s and women’s collections. While the men’s line evokes perfect tailoring, the women’s line allows freedom—flowy dotted track pants and loose chiffon shirts are ideal attire for warm spring weather. The earthy palette (think peaches, creams and nudes) in both is complemented by the occasional splash of a vivid cognac or the brand’s bougie blue—creating a contrast captivating to the eye. Philip Lim masters fusing all of these eclectic elements and constructs a product that’s natural yet sophisticated and exquisitely refined.
