3.1 Phillip Lim Dresses the Too-Cool-for-School Girl for Fall 2014 (Runway Review)



The Scene: Colored perspex screens lined the runway.

The Inspiration: "Soleil," (the sun) according to the designer, who also noted that his girl this season "is somewhere between instant pop and culture."

The Look: Wide slouchy pants, printed dresses with a sweetheart neckline trompe l’oeil, mixed patchworked colors and materials, belted outerwear, outerwear with brightly contrasting oversized collars, oversized knits, oversized blazers, long and loose vests as well as tops with ruffled hems.

The Accessories: Chunky-heeled boots, lace-up boots, structured chain bags, metallic clutches and structured leather bags emblazoned with catchy words like "amaze" and "totes."

The Beauty: Square, dark brows and heavily oiled hair.

The Takeaway: Lim, once again, nails the too-cool-for school look, although it's still to be determined who can actually pull off some of those patchworked looks.
