BRAND OF INTEREST: 3.1 PHILLIP LIM.

Pidän itselleni uusien brändien löytämisestä. Tuorein mielenkiintoni kohde on Amerikkalainen 3.1 Phillip Lim, jonka naisten mallistoon olenkin jo aikaisemmin tutustunut. 2005 perustetun merkin ensimmäinen miesten mallisto julkaistiin 2007 ja se sai välittömästi erinomaisen vastaanoton. Herra Lim on kiinalaistaustainen mutta nuoruutensa Californiassa asunut ja kasvanut, joka ymmärsi Barneysissa työskennellessään haluavansa suunnittelijaksi. Phillip Limin päämaja on kuitenkin aina ollut New Yorkin SoHossa.

ENG: I like discovering brands that are new for me. My freshest big interest is American 3.1 Phillip Lim with whose women’s collection I have been familiar already earlier. The brand was launched successfully in 2005 and its first mens collection in 2007 was a big success. Mister Lim has a Chinese background but has lived his youth in California. While working at Barneys he realized that he wants to be a designer. The head quarters and home of Phillip Lim are in New York’s SoHo.

3.1 is about clothes that refine instead of define. A refinement that’s a bit classic in attitude, but imparts a sense of individual style, without looking or feeling forced. Confident, unidentifiable, chic and most of all effortless.” – Phillip Lim

These are the two pieces on my shopping list:

3.1 Phillip Lim Tuxedo Shirt and Leather Detailed Parka from MyWarderobe.com

Olive Army Parka with Leather Insert - I tried this in New York and its was probably the best parka I’ve ever tried. The leather insert & hood with gold colored zip makes it a very unique piece (My Warderobe) & Black Spot Sleeve Tuxedo Shirt - I like the combination of different materials and the color contrast, (My Warderobe).

Some inspirational collection looks from S/S & Fall 2011:
