We have alot of thoughts on this show. So prepare yourself.
First, we will start by saying Phillip Lim has always been one of our favorites (him and the Proenza boys). We loved him before we loved Alexander Wang, and we still feel that his stuff is a touch above Wangs (please don't judge). We are infatuated by his remarkable dresses with perfect tailoring and inspired style. The construction and fit are always impeccable and we can always count on his pieces to make us feel lady-like but fashion forward at the same time.
We found Lim's focus on outerwear in this collection intriguing. He did the outerwear pieces quite well, with a black trimmed shearling and tweed jacket and a few collarless numbers trimmed with black silk. The slouchy sweaters and tops quickly caught our attention, as did the black suede trousers in his second look. We think that almost everything was done impeccably, except for, our beloved dresses. We were waiting for Lim to show his dresses for fall, since the day that we saw Resort (and the creme lace one that we loved so much). However, in this show, they fell short. The dresses seemed to be haphazardly put together and were a sharp contrast to the strong structure of the pants and jackets.
So overall we think the show was fine, but Lim, you really owe us some fantastic dresses next season. Until then, we will wait, with bated breath.....
Here are our three favorite looks
