“People got street cred from having the best jacket, the best pair of khakis, the best Adidas,” says Phillip Lim in reference to the defiant youth of his Orange County upbringing. It’s these street nuances that designer Phillip Lim borrows from for his S/S ’15 collection, combining them with elements of scholastic polish. The clothing symbiosis results in a dynamic collection of informal but polished silhouettes with quality details. Tailored trousers crafted from a neoprene-esque stretch knit are accented with silk trims, a recurring paintbrush print brings maximum impact to slim tops, and shorts are reinterpreted like never before with drop panels.
