3.1 Phillip Lim Spring/Summer 2014 RTW – New York Fashion Week

Phillip Lim is on the go at New York Fashion Week with his new spring 2014 collection, the conceptual predisposition of which is utterly obvious from the first sight. “It was about trying to find some stable ground in the turmoil of our ecosystems,” he said. And this is how the entire 3.1 Phillip Lim spring/summer 2014 collection can be described. Feels like Phillip took a photo of Mother Nature on literally every piece of the collection.

The main color themes and their resemblance with nature hues were just immediately evident in the 3.1 Phillip Lim spring/summer 2014 collection. From khaki green to different shades of sea colors, you could spot almost all shades of the grass in this fresh line. The shapes chosen for the collection were quite creative as well. The diverse forms ranged from classic-style knee length dresses to various combinations of blazers with curiously designed tops and straight pants. And just look at those kimono sleeves! It’s like WOW!
The interesting play of transparency and watercolors gave the pieces an impression of being light and sky-touching. Lim didn’t forget to borrow something from the Western style as well. Thus, we see those Western fringes on the sleeves of some garments and this goes like an awesome accompaniment to the whole silhouette of the pieces. From classic black and white sleeveless motives, we see the shift towards elbow length jackets and tops.
Classic white was the main background for the entire 3.1 Phillip Lim spring/summer 2014 collection. The combinations were generally organized by the bilateral principle, one side almost always being white: white with khaki green, white with purple-blue twist, white with brownish overtones, white with sea-blue shades, and of course, white with black. Another important detail of the pieces is that they are absolutely wearable and can easily become a part of women’s “guard des robes”.

The 3.1 Phillip Lim spring/summer 2014 collection is thus significant primarily due to the conceptual background of the pieces and the way this idea was set in. This is a really nice try to bring nature on the runway. So yeah, Nature is the woman!
