3.1 Phillip Lim is one of my favorite designers, so it comes as no surprise that his Spring ’12 collection ended up being my favorite collection from NYFW! Here is an excerpt of my review of this timeless collection:
“The main reason why I support Lim’s Spring collection is the fact that it’s so incredibly simple. Very few designers can pull off minimalism (even Francisco Costa struggles with it at Calvin Klein). But this collection is so refined, classic, and chic. The immaculate tailoring is what elevates the collection and saves it from becoming too minimal and dull.
A great majority of collections from NYFW were fussy and filled to the brim with blinding prints. Lim’s collection stood out from the blur of prints, and gave us a clean and fresh collection that can be admired for years to come.”
