Recunosc ca pana sa ma uit recent la tendintele din toamna aceasta, nici nu auzisem de Phillip Lim. De aceea, cred ca am avut nevoie de un mic research si am aflat ca Lim este un designer american nascut in Thailanda, in 1973.
Marca sa, 3.1 Phillip Lim, a luat nastere in 2005, iar in 2007 aceasta i-a adus premiul Emerging Talent in Womenswear, acordat de Consiliul Designerilor din Statele Unite ale Americii (Council of Fashion Designers of America).
Net-a-porter.com despre 3.1 Phillip Lim’s:
“The muse for Phillip Lim’s 3.1 clothing collections is New York City-simple, individualistic and decidedly feminine. Lim adorns luxurious fabrics with unexpected details such as hand stitching and homemade accents to add dimension and personality to each piece.
After studying at California State University at Long Beach, Lim worked for Katayone as a design assistant. He then spent 22 seasons as creative director and co-founder of Development. 3.1, which Lim founded with his partner Wen Zhou, is his most personal collection to date. We love the leather shearling jackets, trapezoid suspender skirts and embellished boucle shorts.”
