ZOOM IN #1 : 3.1 Phillip Lim S/S 2013


Phillip Lim 

born in 1973, in Cambodia, he is a fashion designer of Chinese ancestry. 
He was awarded the 2007 Council of Fashion Designers of America Emerging Talent in Womenswear award for his work as creative director of 3.1 Phillip Lim. 
He worked at the label Development from 2000 to 2004, and has been the head of 3.1 Phillip Lim which launched in the fall of 2005 to present.

 This spring/summer 2013 the designer have so much to offer and to inspire us in our next outfits.

He used the 'Cut-up' technique, in other words patchwork, to produce such a rich collection replete with mixed and matched items: Denim, pants, and tops.

FYI:The 'Cut-up' technique has been used by authors and artists to juxtapose contexts within a work. And then later used by songs writers to compose lyrics with what they cut from magazines and books.

 He also applied in his collection the most wanted and sought features this summer: Silk Sheers (see-through fabrics), the famous floral print (the woodland scenery) and the shredded pieces.

 Inspiring from the one and only Marlon Brando, he designed a modern and in the same time femenine biker.

 The Outline is that this collection will be the most followed and inspired by.
