Badass Superheroes

Phillip Lim's shedding of glitz and embellishment could easily have been interpreted as a reactive hangover to Philo's heralding of minimalism at Celine. However, it is more that Lim has evolved as a designer and knows that his vast customer base (the stuff sells like hotcakes…) are after a fuss-free, cool and not intimidating wardrobe. There was a sharp edge to this super heroes collection but was always softened by Lim's consideration for the perfect trouser, the perfect jacket and the perfect coat in black and white.
