3.1 Phillip Lim Pre-Fall 2017 Collection Channels ’70s & ’80s With Nods to Victorian Fashion

The 3.1 Phillip Lim pre-fall 2017 collection is a layered and mostly monochromatic lineup, inspired by the ’70s and ’80s London night club, the Blitz. It is a chic and interesting collection full of volume and interesting silhouettes. The tops are varied and structured with a very periodic inspired feel that is recognizable, but definitely modernized.

The collection is not a let down by any means; every private wardrobe can use a bit of variation and the 3.1 Phillip Lim pre-fall 2017 collection provides plenty of fantastic options that will work well mixed into a collection of nearly any size or style.

A collection of pieces so well done that each could stand on its own despite being designed into layered looks while simultaneously being easy to integrate is the best thing about this lineup. While the sway and volume of this collection does not lend itself to being dramatic, it does create an easygoing yet stylish feel that will appeal to a lot of people.

The concept overall is eclectic and interesting and looks forward with nods to a certain aesthetic of the past. A fantastic example outfit for this look includes paper-bag-waist track pants and parachute dresses interspersed throughout the collection.

Peasant blouses and floating silhouettes along with an excellent choice in textiles make this collection really wearable. Every one of the looks features volume somewhere with some of the looks showing off volume in the jackets, some in the tops, some in the skirt.

Volume is showing up in several different outfits, creating an interesting shape that is both feminine and voluminous. The accessories were interesting as well including dangling earrings that are also hoops and even a cincher style belt worn on top of a plain blazer.

To be fair, the 3.1 Phillip Lim pre-fall collection is a great lineup, as the pieces will fit in seamlessly for everything from capsule wardrobes to packed closets. The pieces are very easy to pair with others, one of the benefits of them not being designed with too many prints and patterns, but the most minimal amount, each easy to pair with something else. Nearly everything in the collection could be matched with something else; the outfits do not need to be the same only with no variation.

The collection is designed similarly to a capsule collection a person would do at home, each piece complementary to the overall style, but one piece or another can be switched out for maximum wardrobe options within the collection. This is fantastic, as not all collections are created in the manner that would allow for a seamless integration into a current wardrobe without becoming a standout piece only.
