3.1 Phillip Lim RTW Fall 2013
Balancing good design with commercial viability is a dance, and Phillip Lim did a bang-up job of it this season with a 3.1 collection he called Sonomama. The word means “as you are” in Japanese and refers to the steadfast style of moto-racing enthusiasts, a reference Lim has played on before to winning results. Such was the case here with the expected biker vests and racer-back dresses, but the theme moreover was touched upon with zipper details and leather patches.
