(NEW YORK) Phillip Lim's threads send the celebrities running to wear his designs first, and this collection surely will not be any different. The show opened with a fiery blaze, as Lim sent sanguine shorts and pant suits down the runway (which was also entirely red). By including shades of gray, leather, soft pleats and discretely placed bows, Lim created a look of romance rather than girlishness. The designer did not skimp on the sequins, accenting his final looks with an onslaught of evening-worthy glitz. Thankfully, delicate chiffon and organza, as well as his fine detailing, kept the designs from ever veering into the overwhelming category.
