PARIS MEN’S FASHION WEEK: 3.1 PHILLIP LIM SS 2013.
For spring-summer 2013, Phillip Lim went Portuguese. In particular, he cites his inspiration as Barroca – Portuguese for Baroque – plus the minimal influences of Nipo-Brasileiro, the unique subculture that is borne of the Japanese-Brazilian identity that is indigenous to the South American country. His is a modern take and amalgation of two polarised styles. Accessorised with youthful energy, the simple palette, strong lines and textured fabrics make this a clean, elegant yet edgy collection.
