Phillip Lim Adds Sex Appeal to Military Khaki and Staple Black Tailoring
Join Fashion One as we visit the VIPs arriving at the 3.1 Phillip Lim fall winter 2015 show at New York Fashion Week. See highlights of the new season’s runway presentation and listen to our exclusive interview with the designer to hear his inspiration and concept behind the collection.
Phillip Lim says he wanted to challenge the system and do things his way leading up to the brand’s 10th anniversary next season. He describes the system on which he built the brand and the structure and brand identity within the industry and how he challenged himself to remix and re-invent things whilst keeping some of his staple looks.
The cool urban collection explored a feminine and sexy approach to suits and tailoring in black, browns and khaki greens. Layered jackets, fur trims and hanging scarves and draped hems added texture and shape. Other garments included a silk dress with cut panels, belted trench coats, bold checked fabric and multiple zipper detailing.
Lim is constantly kept busy working behind the scenes, answering questions and finding solutions, he says that to see the results and the success of the brand is just like a dream come true.
