Everything about this collection was slim and stylish, with details like electric blue pocket squares, cropped sleeves, collarless button downs, and embroidery that served to carry on the Phillip Lim trademark: modern elegance with a twist at a upper-middle tier price point.
Some highlights included a double breasted black leather trench with cropped sleaves revealing a stripped shirt, a white sleeveless belted military jacket in white paired with a black sweater and white pants, and a blue bomber jacket, the latter of which I would invest in for 2011.
Lim also stepped up his accessory game this season. There was an array of man jewelry, sunglasses, belts, and scarves, as well as the odd bag in the form of portfolios, duffles, totes, and backpacks, all in materials ranging from classic leather to nylon. Phillip Lim is slowly building a menswear empire. With designs like these he is quickly on his way.
