Spring 2011 RTW: 3.1 Phillip Lim

16 Dec

This was a beautiful show although all the looks were very similar. The colors were very neutral, a few pastel colored dresses. I loved the pieces though and the complexity of the simple pieces put together. For example, in the bottom left image the cardigan, button down and bag that are all variations of the same tone shouldn’t have worked but it looks beautiful. Whether or not this will set the tone for the season isn’t clear yet– the emphasis on neutrals and flat, calm colors would be an interesting turn from the bright colors, animal patterns and sequins and embellishing.
