Phillip Lim has become king of retail separates. He always nails the street trend on top of the head, or maybe its that he sets it. That sounds more like it! When asked about his 3.1 Phillip Lim S/S 2012 collection Lim brought up childhood references like kites and spoke nostalgically about Jil Sander and Helmut Lang in the 90’s. You can see all of those points of reference as a guiding light throughout the collection. The soft palette also showed that this collection came from a very innocent and cherished place in his life.
