Phillip Lim designed his first collection in 2005. The New-York based designer introduced the characteristic “3.1” next to the brand’s name after his 31 years of age. His collections consist of everyday staples that echo a touch of peculiarity and declare a sophisticated yet laid-back feeling. As he once said his creations are ‘a bit classic in attitude, but impart a sense of individual style’. The combination of youthful elegance and timeless design define perfectly his aesthetic.
Resort 2016 collection exudes a nouveau bohemian mood fused with pretty lightweight fabrics and stunning intricate details. Modern boho, as the designer characterises it himself, it is made for powerful, confident women who want to conjure the liberal spirit of the 70s as they are crossing airports, climates and continents. The collection’s feminine aesthetic becomes softer with the brand’s contemporary handbag collection, which includes the signature Pashli and newly introduced Bianca and Soleil.
