Marina’s Must-Haves: 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Denim Capsule Collection-------
It’s denim week at Style.com, and between trend reports, editors’ picks, and more, we are covering all the bases for denim lovers everywhere. Phillip Lim, it seems, is one of them. Today, the designer is launching a capsule denim collection. And he’s a longtime fan of the material. “I have always used denim in the collections—it is really intrinsic to the way we dress. Everyone can relate to denim, so I wanted to refashion it for our lifestyle,” the designer told me when asked about the lineup. Lim’s denim capsule collection features twelve styles for a modern wardrobe, like classic trenchcoats, his famous motorcycle jacket, a chic blazer, and tailored pants. “I wanted the cut to be considered, the finish and the details to be thought-out, but most important, to make it appropriate. I like the crispness of the raw denim and how in the right use it can almost take on a whole new purpose. There is something incredibly rich and classic about the deep blue hue of raw denim, too—it’s as classic as black or navy.” The collection is meant to blend in with your everyday wardrobe, and the dark shades Lim loves so much are just what make these pieces look so polished. It’s hard to pick a favorite!
