3.1 Phillip Lim - Women's Autumn/Winter 2017-18 collection in New York (with interview)

Designer : Phillip Lim Ambiance : Orange & striped perspex glass. Inspired by clubbing in the 80s, the designer delivers a collection of refined elegance, always urban. Silhouette : Pink is the next colour to adopt The leather is very present and worked the form of tops with fine shoulder straps and worn on mesh tops.The lace appeared like a spider's web on exquisite dresses To note : the multiple propositions of blousons, coats and mini bomber jackets & jewelry handmade by the studio. Interview with Phillip Lim :I really wanted to make everything hyper feminine, the colour, the flounce, the materials, I wanted to bring a new gravity towards it, like re-cutting the propositions so it felt like the presence of a masculine suit, but it’s not a suit it’s just feminine, all the ingredients that make a woman powerful, to be feminine. It’s not so new, it just feels new, because there’s nothing to prove, you don’t have to be a man to be a woman, it’s just to be a woman, its quite powerful and I think in today’s environment and the atmosphere too, of course, what it looks like to be a feminist, how you should behave, but you shouldn’t you should just be who you are.The new romantics is obviously me growing up in the 80s , it’s the whole blitz culture, the music culture, the whole London club scenes, and I’ve tried to imagine what it would be like today.
