New York Fashion Week: 3.1 Phillip Lim S/S 15 silhouette inspired by sports and curves

Posted on

The latest collection from 3.1 Phillip Lim maintained the designer’s interest in sporty, wearable, fun pieces for the younger woman about town, but added in some fun dialectical conflicts: exposure vs protection, light vs dark and luxe vs streetwear. 

The designer also revealed a bedroom inspiration, not moving straight to the sexy boudoir vibes, but initially focusing on the quilting on a mattress, with the sheer and semi sheer layers of a semi-clothed body juxtaposed with a trellis cloque fabric that ran through the collection.

Silk-covered cords were draped around the curves of the silhouettes, designed to mimic and emphasize a woman’s own shape and flowing over cut-outs exposing collarbones, shoulders, ribcages, and a hint of décolletage.  

There were also plenty of utilitarian elements, from to the Judo belts (which also appeared at BCBGMaxAzria) to the zip-up sporty jackets and drawstring luxe sweatpants. The models’ high-heeled sandals also sported utility rope straps.
