Like vegan cheesecake or electric acoustic guitars, the sleeveless blazer is one of those seemingly paradoxical delights that I am so glad actually exist.

And don’t let its lack of fabric fool you, this vest transitions smoothly into autumn when worn over long sleeved blouses and fitted sweaters. Take a look at our favorite styles to find one you can rock straight through summer and beyond.

On Thursday, March 24th, and Friday, March 25th, from 10AM-6PM, 3.1 Phillip Lim will be hosting a sample sale at 260 West 39th Street, between 7th and 8th Avenue, on the 17th floor. All profits from the sale will go directly to the American Red Cross to aid Japan’s relief efforts during this tragic aftermath.

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. See more pictures after the jump.

Every day, more amazing, sartorially star-studded events for Fashion’s Night Out on September 10th keep cropping up. We reviewed a selection of the night’s hot events before, but we managed to overlook the total genius of the 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone block party. The two will be taking over Mercer Street with music by Matt Creed, burgers by BLT Go truck and ice cream by Van Leeuwen. Inside the store, My Gold Mask will offer the musical stylings, while Phillip Lim will also be on hand to offer the fashion stylings.

What goes into making the finale dress for a fashion show? In the case of Phillip Lim’s Picasso-inspired layered get-up for 3.1 Phillip Lim, five dress makers, five days and a whole lot of inspiration. And that’s not to mention the abundance of lace, crystals and chiffon. Before Karlie Kloss treated the dress to her swaying ballerina walk on the spring 2010 runway, Phillip Lim had to conceptualize the frock, from the minimalism and emptiness of recession scarcity to the thriving and thrashing of a Picasso painting. Luckily for us, he captured the process in a video.
