so recently i have found mad love for Phillip Lim's ready to wear collection 3.1
his recent rtw line @ NY fashion week was an incredible showing of neutral colors. black on black textures and brilliant embellishment:
And despite the struggling economy and [my] empty pocketbooks - people aren't hesitating to invest in his killer collection. "People still like the prices," reported Lim a few days ago in his studio. (And good luck getting on the wait list for his incredible Spring zipper dress...bc it's not gonna happen) Under the runway set of an illuminated arch, hipster singer Lissy Trullie and her band played live throughout. This season Lim embraced the youthquake of sixties London, taking serious influence from Jimi Hendrix and Sergeant Pepper. He also added amazing touches of glam marabou and goat-hair coats/vests (a personal obsession of mine) while making nice with a slew of softly bohemian dresses "It's about fun," said Lim. And fun is what you see. He even makes some casual touches with distressed cotton t's and dresses embellished with sequin skirts.
I love, love, LOVE this line. wish I could invest. Unfortunately I will just keep hoping for a misdelivery at Archetype to play with Lim's collection. Last week, a garment bag got misdelievered to us with 4 of his dresses, including the one seen below. I couldn't pull it of but she surely does. and her shoes are flippin hawt. :) anyway - that's my fashion sense for the moment.
