The asymmetric casual silhouettes in the 3 1 Phillip Lim contemporary wear line are definitely breezy, comfortable and eye-catching. The luxe fashion ensembles are an easy-to-wear "mix of modern tailoring and vintage techniques." Using 100% cotton fabrics, the majority of the shapes are skillfully draped, zigzagged and boxy. For example, the Embroidered Handkerchief Skirt is simple in its fabrication, but complex in its design. The lightweight fabric gently flows down, causing the aforementioned asymmetric casual silhouette. Deriving its name from its form, the skirt is delicately detailed with a beautiful lace frame.
Other monochromatic and aesthetically-pleasing asymmetric casual designs from 3 1 Phillip Lim draw inspiration from Spanish dance culture with flamenco-styled ruffles on cotton-jersey fabric, boasting a combination of effortless sophistication and elaborate playfulness.
