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.

Sometimes, all you want to do is grab your blackberry and your credit card and be out the door. Phillip Lim has decided to accommodate the girl-on-the-go with his pint-sized “berry bag,” a minute clutch a mere five inches tall, four inches wide and two inches deep. Three card slots, a bill compartment, wrist strap and elastics to hold your cell in place make the bag functional, while the snakeskin pattern adds texture and detail. Styles also come in ruby red, basic black or go-with-anything manilla, complete with a buckle strap to resemble a tiny, fashionable suitcase. Fashioned from 100 percent lambskin or embossed calfskin, the durable “berry bag” ($275 at Phillip Lim flagships) is designed to withstand any night out. If only everything in life could be that convenient.
