3.1 Phillip Lim Resort 2010
Ever since I saw a very haute hippie pair of Birkenstocks designed by 3.1 Phillip Lim for Tatami, I’ve watched this designer with interest. After all, this is a man that made me want to shell out over $150 for birks – a brand of footwear that made me shudder. Now comes his very wearable and New York-chic Resort line, and I am enamored all over again. I adore the lace work on the little white dress and mini skirt – romantic but not too frilly to be sexy. The high waisted, rolled-up shorts and jacket combos are smart and modern. There were some misses, namely patchwork denim, and a light denim jumpsuit (even though I normally love jumpsuits). However, most of it is highly wearable. I love how Lim brings back old-fashioned, feminine touches, like lace and polka dots, and makes them so chic and new. The look is pretty, but distinctively urban.
