3.1 Phillip Lim - New York Spring 2009
(NEW YORK) Lim took on the Spanish Moors for his spring collection. Geometric shapes and fringe rocked the runway behind a backdrop of impressive Moorish archways. But this was no theme park ride. The organic zipper dresses were a welcome new coutureish direction for Lim’s contemporary label. Soft prints, ruffles, metallics and lots of pinks were sweet and accented superbly by fierce rosette Louboutins and polka dot bags. “Phillip has a way of making couture handmade clothes with eccentricity and making them prêt a porter,” said friend and follower Irina Lazareanu.
