3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2012 Collection: Dual Action Star

Good and bad, negative and positive, illusion and reality, hard and soft: however you talk about it, opposites attract. This season, nobody has seemed to embrace the notion of smooth contradictions more than Phillip Lim. With a palette centered on black and white, graphic patterns against mesh sheerness, he delivered his interpretation of the “modern-day superhero” who walks among us. She’s strong, powerful, and definitely not in any silly costume.

The oversized clutches and mini-crossbody satchels delivered a similar kind of duality. Appearing from the haze (courtesy of a fog machine at full blast), the bags appeared in panels of clear PVC (a nice compliment to the slip-knot belts in the same material) and textural leathers. Some slouchy and zipped-up, some softened by shearling, others in the thin silhouette of portfolios. Even the friskier bags had a business-like feel – and that’s no accident. Phillip Lim has grown up for fall, and his heroine means business.
