Phillip Lim’s 45-look pre-fall collection proved the notion that even in fashion, it’s possible to have a little too much of a very good thing. Set aside the heavy-handed styling, though, and the collection was full of covetable separates, must-have accessories, and fresh new takes on camo and leopard.
For the most part tops were boxy and bottoms slim: moto-style cigarette pants or pert miniskirts paired with to-die-for knee-high boots and dotted tights. Sharp sweatshirts and a fisherman’s sweater were made modern by side zips and layered with button ups and chunky necklaces or snood scarfs and biker jackets. (Yes, it was a lot, with outfits averaging about six or seven components.)
No matter if Lim intentionally took a cue from the wear-it-all-at-once school of street style, the scene’s stars will surely repay the favor by lining up to purchase every little piece when they hit stores next summer.
