Spring 2017 Ready-to-Wear : 3.1 Phillip Lim




I really am vast becoming a fan of 3.1 Phillip Lim. I firstly discovered the brand when I was obsessed (well, I still am!) with his sunglass designs - and my love for the label got even bigger when I started really looking into his clothing, shoes and accessories pieces when I fell in love with his new Kyoto Stretch Boot in Royal Blue Crushed Velvet - but also in Black. I saw Kendall Jenner don a pair at the Yeezy Exhibition and I instantly lusted after them.

This collection actually contrasted the feel of the chunky boot, and Phillip presented a very feminine, soft and floral collection. However, the Phillip edge was still very much there with the chunky sandals he had teamed with the floral looks. It wasn't just the creative vision of the collection which was soft, the whole runway was dusted with flowers and sand. Phillip took to his Los Angeles roots with this collection, with it really emphasising on the Californian summer feel. He also looked to a period of fashion which resembled bathing suits from the Victorian era, which has actually been a huge trend during NYFW. Supermodels have been donning this "swimtimates" trend throughout the week and Perhaps paired with some jeans the look would be much more 90s. Some looks also felt very "Californian surfer babe" with dresses casual white drawstrings around the neck, which you can easily throw over a bikini or swimsuit on holiday, or of course, on the Malibu beaches. The super-sexy look was of course balanced with Phillip's vision of romance with lace, ruffles and collared coats which were printed with flowers. The theme carried onto scuba outfits which was combined with the 90s feel. The laid back feel of the collection was everything we wanted from Phillip Lim, and I absolutely loved it.
