Are you ready for some wonderful, effortless mix & match? Easy-to-mix fashion items are definitely a thing for busy New Yorkers! Fall/Winter 2022-23 at 3.1 Phillip Lim leans into the multi-dimensionality of the enigmatic modern woman, blurring the lines between casual and formal; the proposal is a wardrobe of spontaneous modularity. There is a fluidity to the collection that creates a purposeful, eclectic wardrobe; one that emulates confidence, softness, and functionality.
The collection is a playful interaction of function and sensuality, a focus on elements of movement mixed with strong, structured staples. Inspiration from uniform dressing is translated into a cropped cadet-style jacket, or a boxy blazer, paired with a choice of pleated culottes, carrot trousers, or generous dickie pants; all elevating the idea of modular tailoring.
A nod to dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch is hinted in twisted jersey dresses pulling in tension across the body, wrap jersey t-shirts, crisscross knitted bands, and asymmetric, free-form hems on bodycon knitwear.
Modern utility takes shape in a cloud-like recycled ripstop puffer that floats with ease, while an oversized bonded-cotton bi-color trench adds unique dimension to a timeless silhouette.
Dual seasonal prints are introduced, both representing pillars of her evolution. The Graphic Tile print inspired by the work of Cecil Touchon alludes to ambiguity in structure and disruption of form. Seen in a silk twill blouse and an asymmetric-hem shirt dress with a convertible necktie collar, it is a subtle reminder that there is always room for self-expression within the house’s codes.
The Lichen bloom print is cut into contemporary soft dressing that embodies free-flowing movement with an intuitive connection to nature.
This collection embodies a steadfast pursuit of personal evolution in the face of change, allowing her to hold space confidently knowing that each moment’s beat is one to celebrate.
