3.1 Phillip Lim

Spring 11

The look Phillip Lim said he wanted to push the notion that elegance doesn’t have to mean mature, so his collection was all about clean lines and geometric shapes. Layered shapes were more important than the structural quality of individual garments.

Key pieces Necklines were high, often neatly set with a pared-down collar. Jumpers were worn with an apron-style leather piece over the top. Hemlines on skirts were mid-thigh or knee-length.

Colours Camel and tan shades emphasised the elegance Lim wanted from the collection and the neutral tones contrasted with fresh baby blue. Black was used as piping and to create geometric shapes on tops and dresses.

Commercial appeal This collection was well put together and flowed beautifully. The baby blue prevented the camel from looking tired. Key looks included the dresses and skirts with geometric lines and panelling.
