3.1 PHILLIP LIM FW09 NEW YORK 02-18-09Offering a heavily stylized collection with a 1960s mod look, Lim knows that underneath all the layers he needs to offer his girls the wardrobe additions that keep women buying 3.1. Cropped and tightly tailored jackets and double-breasted coats, draped or gathered dresses, and girlish blouses will have local women shopping Lim’s collection for fall.

The Gist: The ’60s Carnaby Street vibe allows Lim to whip up a slew of novelty pieces for next season: cropped fur jackets and vests, outerwear coats that zip away at the hip, ruffle blouses in jewel-tone brights, and gold sequin jackets.

Lim’s collection layers on the clothing in combinations like a lurex black and gunmetal striped dress worn under a black studded vest and a white soutache embellished jacket; or a pale pink, ruffled button-down blouse with matching skirt and asymmetrical, beaded hem all worn under a fur-lined parka.
