Always simple and sophisticated, 3.1 Phillip Lim is a designer that sartorialists dream about.
His Spring 2011 collection featured elegant silhouettes and structured outerwear – perfect for that chic, uptown look.
He drew from a mostly neutral color pallette, and paired bright powder blues with beige and sheer cocoa-colored blouses.
His show was a playful, yet understated, mix of textiles and shapes.
