3.1 Phillip Lim Show- Women's collection Spring/Summer 2018 in New York (with interview)
Designer: philip limatmosphere: in a raw setting, with metal beams and concrete walls, philip lim delivers a collection full of character, playing with strong lines, graphics or against anything round. collection: the collection starts with bubble skirts and dresses. the designer plays with proportions, the bare backs end in gathered elastic. long length jackets, coats and trenches are worn without sleeves. all is carried out with a sense of purity, around beige, navy and white. the end of the collection is romantic and light with long skirts and dresses strewn with ruffles. to note: the white skirt scarf coordinated with its top. phillip lim : the opening look, my idea of a simple white tee shirt, my version of a white tee shirt, and trousers and summer sandals. something so simple felt so powerful to me. or even the red dress of a simple black dress. in the end i said let’s just go crazy with romance and ruffles.i had so much fun making this collection but it was also scary because it was so eclectic. but it was one of those things that i love and something i love to do. it’s part of the dna of the house from the simple minimal things to the more athletic things, sporty things, and then at the end the really beautiful romantic things. i feel so privileged to do the shows but when i work on the collection i have to do something for myself, top learn something for myself. i didn’t know how this was going to go down but it feels instinctual and right to make the collection a sentence. not just one bug concept but all the parts i love. we were working on such a big volume but we had to go in a cut it apart so it wasn’t overwhelming. you saw moments where there was room to breathe. looking at it like cutting a tree. music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under coverof the right to information).
